Again...from my iPad so sorry, no cute pic to go along with this post. But, if there was one it would look like this... Lucy (my almost 4 year old firey red head) outside on the patio in her underoos, a t-shirt and her crocs mixing a concoction of herbs and lettuce from the garden with water and mandarin oranges and you guessed it feeding it to a very excited Jesse (my 2.5 year old) also wearing a t-shirt, a diaper and his fireman rain boots while my baby Hoke (10 month old) crawls around in a pile of spilt bubbles and chalk drawings on the ground. Popsicle papers and sticks are thrown around and a yellow lab is licking up the drippings! So as i sat with my vodka tonic in hand this past saturday this was the picture before me and I thought "my life is a mess"! It really is. Shit everywhere, nothing...absolutely nothing is clean and tidy or organized, but it's ok. It has been really hard for me to get to this point where I can sit back have a drink and enjoy it without scurrying to clean up. In this moment I was actually kinda proud of myself. I've come a long way....still have a long way to go but I feel like maybe I am "enjoying the moment" a little more inside of the chaos. I guess I prefer this kinda mess....the messes I can eventually clean-up and the memories made in the process. Here's to life....messy ones! E
