happy list…

things that have been making me happy recently…

– feeling baby boy move. After the bad news about the location of the placenta I wasn’t expecting to feel him move for quite some time and then BAM I felt him! Now I feel him move all the time (he has certain times of day he is most active). It truly is one of the most magical things I have ever experienced

– my alloted one cup of coffee. Now that I can only have the one each day I look forward to it immensely each morning. Who knew I could be so grateful for a cup of coffee

– my super snuggly pup. He’s been such a lover recently. Maybe he knows his time as an only child is limited?

– Brian got another promotion at work. That makes two in one year! I’m just so damn proud of him. He works so hard and to see him get the recognition he deserves brings me joy

– the green dream smoothie (almond milk, green apple, frozen banana, kale a parsley) from Kreation. I want one every day right now

– a prenatal yoga class held at a doulas house that totally blissed me out

– long walks on grey days

– watching episodes of “Girlfriends Guide To Divorce”. They are mindless fun and give me a laugh

– my growing baby bump. I have such an appreciation for my body these days

– a bright light filled space that makes being home more right now manageable

– a trip we are taking next weekend to Carmel by the sea for a friend’s wedding. I’m looking forward to celebrating the nuptials and being up north. It’s so pretty up there


What’s been making you guys happy recently??

    What a great list! It’s so lovely to spend time thinking about the things that make us happy. I am trying to focus on those lovely pregnancy feelings which made me so happy 15 weeks ago! At 37 weeks, it’s all a bit too easy to feel fed up with it all.

    Have a fab weekend – we stopped for a coffee at Carmel on a road trip in 2007 and it was delightful!!

    It’s all good news in this post. I have never been to Carmel, but if it’s as lovely as the rest of the mid-Coast, I will get there sometime in the next five years. I am staying close to home, for the most part. Work is getting better, and I am in the heart of an inner journey. Being with kids makes me happy, as does being on a trail.

    I can feel you’re bliss, your complete awareness of the present moment, and your appreciation of every little thing. What a magical time you are experiencing right now – in so many ways. I am so very happy for you. xoxo

    I wish we had Kreation in Columbus! So delicious! It may be a bad idea though…I’d probably break the budget every week by going there…

    Also, I can’t wait to see more photos of your growing ‘bump’ – you look so beautiful!!
