One day at a time.. ya know? Sunday was a pretty heavy day for me. The loss of a friend can really take a toll on you. But, I'm determined to take a look around, really to SEE and to FEEL and to just BE.
I took time yesterday to spend with my little man. His daddy and I gave him a SpongeBob Valentine's book, those chalk-y Valentine's hearts (stick to the traditions), and Horton Hears a Who. Dylan was sitting in
my his chair, and yelled up the stairs to me, "MOM! I have some-fing for yoooooouu tooooo!! Come see!" So, I went down to see what he came up with. He grabbed a candy heart and said, "Valentime for you mommy. Just 'cause I wuv you." Melt my heart.
Dyl and I had a lunch date. I'm pretty sure I got a gold star for letting him have cheeseburgers and french fries. (Take the victories where you can. ha!)
Upon arriving at home, from lunch, I found an AMAZING surprise...
Hellloooooo FABULOUS orchids!!! I have THE BEST husband in the world!! They are so amazing and gasp. You may be thinking, "Why not roses?" I do enjoy roses, but I think orchids are more amazing.. Oh and peonies. I just love the unexpectedness of it. Special flowers.
Later in the evening, Dyl and I cuddled up to watch his movie.
My sweet boy fell asleep. How can you not love that face?
Then, it was my turn to pamper myself. I needed quiet, peaceful luxury.
Soft light from the candles. I also had to unscrew some of the lights. Lighting is key.
Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap) and bath salts... delightful!!
I soaked, and melted away tension, stress, thoughts... everything. I want to have a date night with myself more often!
After my bath, I attempted to watch Casablanca. Can you believe I have never seen it? Well, my amazing bath put me in some sort of a sleepy/foggy/coma state. I couldn't even make in 15 minutes into the movie. But, a 10pm bedtime was well worth it!
Did everyone have a great Valentine's Day?? I know I did!
