We've had this amazing 80 degree weather this week. Already I feel a slower pace coming with the longer days. We have spent many moments in the hammock on our back porch, looking up at the fully in-bloom akebia vine. It's finally making its way across our pergola. We've been drinking lemon water, laying on blankets on the front lawn, and taking strolls around the neighborhood. I try and always savor these perfect days. Even today with no nap and quite a few tears, I felt eternally grateful. Matilda said the sweetest prayers at bedtime and I got in almost an hour of yoga (bliss), making me a happy mama. Learning to put a lot less pressure on myself and getting in a full night's sleep also helped tremendously!
