A trip to the ocean

This summer the littles and I took a road trip. Monterey is one of my favorite places to visit and just be. I love the smell of the sea. The crisp cold air and the lazy little feel of this town.
We stopped in at the aquarium and net an octopus. He was very friendly. The tour guide lets us know he never comes out during the day that we were experiencing a rare treat. I like to think he heard from a little bird that the littles were on their way and to make their trip extra special do he came out to greet us.

Last Day of Summer Vacation

The day has come. The last day of summer vacation. It's been a busy 11 or so weeks. I enrolled the littles in many activities. Swimming lessons, nature camp, karate camp and a quick vacation to Monterey Bay. I can't believe that tomorrow my little baby will becoming a Kinderkid. Oh my Gish where did time go?

You've got the love

Have you read the lyrics to this song? Do you know it and him it in your head the way I do? Do you sometimes feel like throwing your hands up in the air and saying lord I just don't care? Sometimes that's how I feel. I suck it up though. I know that I can dig deeper and keep building what once upon a time crumbled. A thicker ski everyone can use it. I can for sure but I should also find a new pandora channel. The Tegan & Sara channel is just full of lyrics like this. Sings that make you sit and listen absorb and feel pain over again, like a scab that keeps getting poked and trickles out.

I don't mean to sound salty. Honestly I'm not even in a salty mood. Just sometimes Florence will do that to a girl.

Good morning

It's one of those Sundays. Woken up but still too sleepy eyed to actually make my way out of bed. Its foggy outside but bright. The light of the day spills into my room while I take a cat stretch and look over. Someone my wee one has grabbed my hand and whispers hello beautiful momma. I quickly snap a picture. It's one of those moments you want to live forever somehow in a memory, or a photo. Either one will do. The littles blue alligator, his constant companion demands a hello. I greet him with a good morning and a smooch before they exit the bed to do their little boys work. Alone now thinking.

Chin up always

A morning snap

I've been a busy little bumble bee life is full of things to do and places to go. Too many to list on my weekly to do pad. For over a month now I have completely given up coffee! It was hard at first but I now no longer have a desire or taste for it. I have moved on to tea. I'm in the middle of a total tea crush. I'm straight up smitten with it.
I especially love a cup of chai with a dash of creamer and a sprinkling of cinnamon. I think I love the ritual of something warm, something I can hold in to in my hands and belly in the morning.
Hoping the desire for coffee stays gone but if an itch needs to be scratched I probably will java up again.

I'm So into tea right now I have created a board dedicated to the delicate little leaves of pleasure of pintrest. If your not following my boards you should I give good pin.
