Postcard from last night- jack spots this gorgeously full double rainbow and takes off on his bike to find where the rainbow begins. Rather than explain how rainbows work, I said go, just watch for traffic — because the joy is found in the freedom of being able to simply go : do (and this smile upon returning reminds me so)
a season of play- I don’t know if I was very good at playing as a child; I think I’ve always been a little too serious for my own good. But recently, I went away for a week and I pretty much spent the whole week engrossed in play. I felt very much like myself. I returned to my family noticing how freely my children play, realizing that I could join in the lightness, and wanting to get wrapped up in play. I have spent June playing more, imagining what this might look like etc. And so, July 1 begins a year of focusing on all things playful + play-related. Maybe you’ll want to join in all the reindeer games with me? #gametime
Saying yes to all the blues – really I cannot get enough of these colors. And of course, Mia is the first one down to the water; ready to dip in at any moment. I know what my body wants and needs, she patiently but emphatically reminds me, again and again.
She needs to feel the wind through her wild unbrushed hair. She needs to walk outside and tell stories to herself. She needs waves to tickle her toes and time to be her wild willful self.
