simply loving

this is my favorite home in uptown charlotte
and my mom's as well
a classic victorian with a large front porch and charming trees
 i see it every time i go to the post office 
-a small joy-
 i thought of her this morning
listening to a willie nelson song 
and dazing off 
and dreaming
for a bit.

motherhood | stories lately

reading picture books (and movie nights) have helped us get through the winter days and nights- especially the drearier ones. these moments remain one of our most treasured times of the day as a family. looking back- praying before every meal, riding my bike to the library almost daily, sharing a room with my sister, and my mom or dad reading books to us before bed are some of my favorite parts about my childhood. lately we've been reading lots of simple, quiet books (besides #5 on my list today- that is a fun one!) 

just by chance, a lot of these titles follow kids on walks around the world, pointing out everyday magic, or making it themselves. several of these books focus on the comfort of routine and the joy of discovery. i wanted to share with you ... in case you want to read with your family. 

nash charles . month nine | things i always want to remember

time is passing through me like a rushing river. it was just a few hours ago we were having a dance party in our loft with a positive pregnancy test. it was just a couple minutes ago we broke down when we heard that hammering heartbeat. 

and then saw his face; crying for the first time and so beautiful.
