June 4, 2012

I turned 34, yes THIRTEEEEE FOUR.

Wowza.

Here we are with that whole time thing again.

I'm 34, just days away from celebrating my 5 year wedding anniversary and within months from watching my daughter turn 3.

Hold me closer Tony Danza.

I took the day off from work.  It was sunny and warm and perfect.  I met my family and friends at the pool for a day of relaxation and Vitamin D.  With the exception of when she had to potty, Mia did not get out of the water until 3:30.  We got there at noon.  Girlfriend's a fish, just like her Momma (haaaaallelujah). We topped off the day with a BBQ at my parent's house.

I put my phone away (well it was a business day, so I did check it periodically to make sure the world of commercial real estate was not coming to an end because of my absence).

I put my camera away and just soaked up the day.

I'm a lucky girl.  I have a very full heart after yesterday.

It's so easy to get sucked into the busy-ness of life.  It's so easy to let the responsibilities and life as a whole become a stress.  The list of never ending to-dos both personally and professionally is often overwhelming.

But then there are days like yesterday.  Perfect.  A great reminder that this is my life.  This is my one shot.  To make it what I want.

The chores can wait, the laundry can wait, but time with my family and friends cannot.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Do note, that tonight will be spent cleaning, putting away laundry and getting my house in a less chaotic order than I left it this morning because I'm learning to let it go a couple of days, but not forever.  Let's not kid ourselves.

"Hold me closer Tony Danza." ha! I laughed out loud at that one. (Not LOL cause I'm an old fart.) Glad you had a good day. :)
