This weekend felt like golden sunshine and green trees and plants. It felt vibrant–it felt like what my soul needed.

We’re down in LA today so David can see a spine specialist. He has had scoliosis since he was born but it seems to have progressed as he’s gotten older {and with his recent growth spurt}. Steve and I are a little nervous about the appointment. David’s body is quirky and we never know what to expect. Later this week David has an appointment with a pediatric Ear Nose Throat specialist to look at a polyp {growth} in his nose. To fight the stress I feel, I’m trying to move slowly and stay in the moment. This moment is okay. This moment is enough.

How about some hellos for a new week?

Hello macrame in the window. Reminds me Tied and True.

Hello wood table and glass bottles. Love the texture.

Hello to my three favorite boys. ❤

Hello succulent garden.

Hello asking Matthias to take a pic of us in front of an aqua wall–my favorite color.

Hello chips and salsa from Lola’s in Long Beach, So good! I recommend the Tijuana Tacos and fried plantains. Yum.

Hello iconic Santa Monica palm trees. Someone once told me palm trees were ugly. I disagree–but then I’m a California girl.

Hello needing sleep after a busy, very fun weekend.

Hello reading this book to David. It’s his favorite right now. We love London!

Hello lots of driving this week. I need to download some good podcasts.
