my apologies for the recent radio silence. i’m not gonna lie, it’s been a doozy of a week so far (and it’s only wednesday!) but thankfully things are definitely on the up and up.
with that said, i wanted to share a little slice of sunshine i relished in this past weekend. after letting far too many days go by without some carved out one-on-one time, sistah and i planned a breakfast date at claire’s on cedros. the best part (besides the bacon, of course) was that jebby got to tag along as well. he arrived looking much more boy and far less baby in his t-shirt and sneakers and rhino-shaped backpack. i think my heart instantly increased three times in size.
over coffee and scrambled eggs (again, and bacon –which i’m happy to learn jebby is also a big fan of), sistah and i caught each other up of the recent happenings in our respective lives. we relished in a slow morning and in each other’s company. i sat back with pride as i witnessed how naturally motherhood comes to her and what an amazing little man jebby is growing up to be. it was one of those moments that you really wish didn’t have to end.
so we made a pact to do this more often. to pause the chaos of our busy lives and exchange it for something slower paced. a morning spent investing in one another as both family but more importantly, friends, and a morning filled with enough sunshine to carry me on into the rest of the week.3
