What i am enjoying these days:
The fall leaves covering the ground.
Spending time with Matt.
Every sound that Nico makes.
Every hour of sleep I get.
Every meal that a friend brings over.
The books I have been devouring.
Making tissue paper pom poms for Ben’s birthday party.
Reading Expressive Photography and feeling so proud to be a part of it.
Collaborating with Brene Brown on a Dream Lab.
Every small kindness.
There is a way that birth opens you up, not only physically but in other ways too. This birth cracked me open, not in a traumatic way, but in the sense that I am more open now than I have been in a long time. The feeling that this is a window of opportunity is almost palpable– a crack letting more light in, more love, and more healing than I ever could have imagined. I am treading lightly with it, not wanting this window to close, wanting to be as conscious as I can to take advantage of all this moment has to give. I almost don’t want to say too much about it, just to acknowledge that this time feels sacred and fleeting, and that the possibility of miracles feels unbearably close.
