THE WEEKLY: feb 25th - march 3rd.






  S N A P S H O T S  

-  the best vanilla latte ever
-  snowy weather outside the window
-  silly boy
-  another photo of my favorite coffee shop


   M O M E N T S  +  H A P P E N I N G S     

i started + finished reading "he said/she said". it had me hooked in the first few pages, but i'm really conflicted about the ending. around the 75% mark, i was thinking that the book was about to wrap up. then a big, unexpected twist happened, and it changed the trajectory of the entire book. i realize that's why it's called a twist, and it's just fiction, but still. i finished the last page and just stared at the ceiling for a while.

we went to dinner with friends on saturday night. afterward we hung out at my favorite coffee shop and talked while jackson made so much noise that i just knew some of the other patrons were silently judging us for bringing a toddler into a coffee shop.

it's said that march comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. we woke up on sunday to three inches of snow (and drifts up to my knees). i'm over winter. i'm starting to wonder if spring will ever happen. (it will, i know. don't tell me to enjoy the present, janet.)


   L E S S O N S  +  R E A L I Z A T I O N S    

-  when jackson was teeny tiny, i was so afraid that he'd cry when i was in public that i rarely went out with him. this weekend, there were a couple times when he was rather loud (read: screaming) and i calmed him without embarrassment. there was apparently a table next to us with some women who (jared said) gave some glares, and it didn't bother me. kids are kids. if someone doesn't understand that, oh well. i'm not going to let jackson run around like a maniac, but i'm not going to run away because some people snub their nose. (confession: i probably snubbed my nose over the years before i had jackson. it is what it is.)

-  i have been singing the wrong lyrics (yet again!) to a song for over two decades. instead of singing "how bizarre?" - i've been singing "how was i?" and i have laughed at myself for days because that sounds like something i'd do.
