This afternoon has been one of those perfect days. The kind of day where you want to push pause and forget the reality of the normal day-to-day hustle and bustle. Spending time together as a family is the highlight of each day, but this afternoon was something special. We trekked out to the backyard with dinner in hand, Paul spread out a thick blanket on the bright green lawn beneath the leafy walnut tree. We snacked, tickled, rolled, listened, laughed, cuddled and simply enjoyed. No worries or stress to bog us down.
It all abruptly ended with a large spit up from a little man. But still, it was perfect. And I never want to forget the peace and pure happiness I feel when I take the time to enjoy the little things with my family.
