The weatherman said rain.
Although it did rain all weekend, it's sunny and warm here in New York, today.
And I'm smiling.
Things are great lately. It's been warm enough to wear a bathing suit in April! And after a winter of working out, I am beach ready. So, whats new? The seasonal house that we are staying at now is up in May. It was a scramble to find a new place but we I did it. I found a lovely condo with a pool and near lots of shopping. The wedding planning is still quite overwhelming but I'm chipping away at it, one obstacle at a time. I really want to have a traditional wedding so that our families and friends can all attend. But I don't want to spend a lot of money on it. I am throwing myself into the challenge of planning a frugal but romantic wedding.
I am making progress. Although, I must tell Ty once a week, "Let's just elope."
While Scarlett has given me plenty of exercise, over the past couple of weeks, I've still found the time (during naps or Olivia) to sneak in some writing. She is into everything. She only wants things that she knows she can't have, and I'm pretty sure she's going through another growth spurt. Little miss cranky pants needs my undivided attention all. day. long. It's okay. This too will pass. If I don't write, I feel unaccomplished. I crave it. If I can't write at least a few pages a day, I feel like I didn't get a chance to be me. To have an hour or two a day to write, makes me smile.
This past weekend was a successfully lazy weekend. We went grocery shopping in the rain. Somehow, we always end up doing that on a rainy day. Fun. Ya know, unloading a million bags in the rain, the scrambling to get them inside; me cracking up as Ty walks in with the last of the groceries, looking like he took a shower with his clothes on.
Again, it's the little things......
The rest of our time was spent lounging around in pajamas, trying new recipes, playing with Scarlett and watching movies. Every once in awhile, I'm grateful for a rainy weekend so we can all spend time together.
Dear John was on and I watched it back to back. Scarlett's First Birthday is in less then 2 weeks. I got to buy some extremely fabulous Anthropologie home decor for half price! I organized Scarlett's closet & clothes. And Ty is as charming as ever.
