What matters most.

I have lots of new photos to share but since we've been so busy, I'm taking time now to focus on what matters most.  You know my little bloom and her Dada.  If you are a mama or even if you aren't, I so recommend this beautifully written essay.   I think we will all agree that everyone in our lives wants just more connection.  I love reminders of what really, I mean really matters.  And that's love. 

Today, Chloe had her first dance class.  Let's just say it was an exciting milestone moment for this mama.  The tutu's, hair buns, bows and shaking that happened, Chloe was SO into it.  So was I.  This was my major smile moment of the day.  Seriously.  




Okay and I've got a few goods reads going at night instead of blogging.  I just finished: Bloom by Kelle Hampton and I recommend it highly.  The title caught my eye while reading her blog, since I always call Chloe my little bloom.  I pre-ordered it and I'm so glad I did.  Her book is chalk full of inspiring photos every mother would love.  And her beautiful story of looking for beauty every where and for embracing love instead of fear.  This is something I always strive for and know creates a more peaceful, harmonious life.  Look for the good.  I can always use an extra reminder, can't we all?

I'm paging through a to a couple other books now, a few on grief and a book club selection that I'm just starting now (we meet tonight).  Hopefully they won't kick me out for flunking my first reading assignment.  Ha!  I felt like such a cheater but I had to finish my other book first.  I'll start the next book on the right foot (and totally uncommitted).

Random blog, I know.  That's just the way life is sometimes.

Have a good day, my nine readers.  (wink)

Oh so cute! What a great idea to get some video. It really is the sweetest thing when they dance at such a young age. It is so much fun! She looks adorable.
