The Usual

This was a Tuesday of many little celebrations. Celebrations of the everyday, usual, and boring, but all the same, celebrations of the things I hold so, so dear. Celebrations of moments that will fly by faster than we know, like...

Sleeping babies

(This little guy's sleep training is starting to pay off... 6 weeks old and sleeping 5-6 hours straight at night!)

Blurry toddler fairy wings

Fresh green bean cassarole

Steaks searing in 100-year-old cast iron

Spring thunderstorms

It may seem cliche, but these everyday things that surround me... well... every day, are the most important things in my world. It is easy to get caught up in to-do lists, plans and procedures, and even routine, and miss out on the very things you're working for. Every once-in-a-while, it's good to just stop, look around, and celebrate the usual.
