I've decided to take a break from Mad Passions for the month of May. I'll be doing some internal and external spring cleaning of sorts.
As always you can see my life in pictures on Instagram and I may be posting more on Twitter. In the meantime if you want to say hi! you can drop me an email.
Have a fantastic month and see you in June!!!
Tuesday, April 30, 2013
With all that has been going on around here I haven't looked at my calendar in a few weeks. So imagine my surprise when I saw that today's date is April 30th. I couldn't believe that it's the 30th already and that tomorrow is MAY. Wasn't it just my birthday? How did the whole month get away from me?
Things are going better this week (knockonwood)and I'm hopeful that our rhythm will only improve from here on out. I can hope anyway. I can see many bright sunny days ahead filled with squeals from Connor, smiles from me and supportive hugs from James.
Life is really good.
And lastly a few things I've been grateful for in April: ♡ turning 38 ♡ the heat from Connor's tiny little body against mine at night ♡ home baked muffins ♡ getting started with Project Life ♡ strawberries ♡ cherry blossoms ♡ James joining us at the playground ♡ bubbles with Connor ♡ skyping with my parents ♡ my tulips ♡ starting new knitting projects ♡ sunny days ♡ flip flops ♡ loving my life through the struggles ♡ slowly creating a home that I love ♡ taking deep breathes ♡ Music Together ♡ alone time ♡

My donkey tail is in bloom. I was given this plant as a house warming gift when we moved into this apartment eight years ago. I had no idea that these succulents could bloom until this year. Why my plant decided all of a sudden to open up these beautiful pink flowers I have no idea, but they make me smile.
And boy do I need something to make me smile.
Our rough patch is still going strong with Connor now going eight hours in the day without sleep. This has culminated in him falling backward off our sofa and getting a very nasty purple goose egg on the back of his head. It also doesn't help my nerves that James broke his leg last week. But don't worry, Connor is fine, and James is fine. He doesn't have a cast as the break is 2 inches below his hip, he just needs to stay off of his leg. Which is a joke because my husband does not do well with being idle.
I gave both my men a stern talking to and made it very clear that they are not allowed to injure themselves anymore. Have I mentioned that I'm really looking forward to April being over.
