Pieces of This Week...or two.
What's New? We are moving, yet again. This time, from our summer condo back to our off-season house. Which is nice because we have much more room there with a heated pool. Not to mention it's in the heart of the city. I have been pretty busy trying to get wedding things accomplished. It's only 9 months away! In between packing and play dates, I managed to find some time to go back to Massachusetts to take care of wedding details. Tomorrow, September 11th, is a sad day for most. It's always a haunting reminder of that one tragic day, but to us, September 11th is also a day to celebrate. It is our 3 year anniversary. It's the day that Ty asked me to be his girl and I said yes. Ironically, we won't be together for our anniversary. Instead, I will be with my sister & mother, trying on wedding dresses.(Which is, metaphorically, kind of cool.)
The Holiday? Labor day weekend was a lazy and relaxing one for us. I was completely thrilled with this since we are usually always on the go. I refused to get out of my sweats for most of the time. We watched movies, made food and took an occasional stroll around the neighborhood. Ty works so much and he recently took up boxing, so I rarely see him during the week. It was nice to have a uneventful weekend.
Scarlett? Scarlett turned 16 months on September 4th and I'm having a hard time with the fact that she is almost 1 1/2 years old! I pulled out some old photos of her from when we first moved here to New York, last year. How small she was. I am so proud of the sweet girl that she is becoming. Giving kisses and saying please in her tiny little voice. Time goes by much too quickly and you start to realize this more when you become a parent. I've been trying to balance everything lately and it's become difficult. Sometimes, I get so overwhelmed by my to do list, that I simply put it away and just spend time with Scarlett. Errands, packing, chores, planning and everything else will be there for years to come....Scarlett's baby days won't.
Fall? Fall is coming so quickly and I'm a bit excited for that. Something about fall makes me happy. It couldn't be that it's boot season and we get to wear our Minnetonka's, now could it? ;) Which of course, we have been living in.
On My Heart? I've been reminiscing lately. Some think that it's living in the past. I don't think that's true. I appreciate moments. I'm sure that is why I have always taken a million photographs. Those memories are all that is left of a moment that was once my life. I am a sentimental person through and through. When remnants of the past come up, they leave imprints on me. I am vulnerable to the feelings or people that were once mine. Although I feel that I am a strong soul, I find myself burdened with heavy, melancholic feelings. This happens when things that were once close to my heart, arise. I'm the epitome of a Leo. I love fiercely. The passion never dims for things that I once held close to my heart. This gets tricky when it's my past...........Sometimes, I wish my ardent heart wasn't so fervent. With good intentions it always ends up of hurting someone, somehow.
