Monday began gloomy....heavy...wet....and seemingly hard to move through....one of those crawl back into bed and spend the day reading under the covers.......
but luckily I didn't cause I would have missed all of the good in the week to come...
A snail mail gift from the gorgeous Catherine....a gift that arrived in perfect timing to lift the spirits....I love the friendships forged through this space.
Seeing ballet shoes back on our teen...the next leg of her journey to pursue her dreams.
Finding my teen at the sewing machine...stitching up something to keep her new shoes.
Slow Cooker Balsamic Beef for dinner....and lunch the next day
Slow Cooked Tomato Soup......also filled the spot through out the week.
Discovering this box....and upon lifting the lid I was transported back to my 15 year old self.....just wondering if there are some things in there that may help with my own 15 year old and her journey this week......maybe... or should I just pop the lid back on and put the box back up in the back of the wardrobe.
It's been a week....keeping the lioness at bay.....holding my teens hand....being amazed at how amazing she is.....wondering if we are really doing it all right as parents....thinking that maybe we are on the right track......knowing we are really only beginning and this parenting thing is for the long haul.....
Check out Meghan's family adventure this week.
