Now that I've got the beach house (that virtual tour sold me) for our June party reserved and wedding announcement/party invites picked out and ordered, I feel slightly more relaxed. Like I can breathe and do something else with my time. Also helps a great deal that NS is stopped in the Bahamas for a few days and was able to see those two things and reassure me of my choices last night.
I'm inspired to write about several different things, but certainly not all at once, so I'll just start with a piggy-back off of Susan's request last week about moments we'd freeze in time if we could.
A few of those types of moments popped into my head.
* I'd love to freeze the moment during my 7th birthday party when I saw my Cookie Monster cake. It was the most glorious cake I'd ever laid eyes on, and I can picture the cake and the surroundings vividly, but I can't see myself or my reaction, and I'd love to be able to since it is such a fond memory from my childhood.
* I know I could watch the moments when I first met my boys over and over again until the end of time. I remember my reaction being that their skin was "so soft" and then feeling the enormous sense of relief in knowing they were really there and delivered in perfect condition. Tears of pure worry-release rolled down the side of my eyes when I heard those first wails.
* One moment in time that I could relive and just stay in forever would be a night when the boys were asleep in the room next to NS and I as we snuggled on the couch watching I, Robot last summer. I was pregnant with Baby Angel, and at that moment, life was pefect. He rested his head gently on one side of my bulging belly with his hand carressing the other. A moment of simple bliss when I felt certain everything would be alright.
In case y'all didn't share last week with Susan, either, feel free to replay your favorite life moments in comments.
