We hope all you Dad’s out there are enjoying your day properly. This one’s for you! 🍻✨ #Repost @happyhourguys ・・・
Not much better than a cold one while cruising on a boat. Especially when it’s a Kold One kolsch from @millhousebrewery . Fresh clean malt dominates with a surprisingly (and enjoyable) fuller body than expected. Subtle hops on the finish. A fantastic outdoor beer and at 4.6% ABV, you can have more than one.
For the first time in your sweet little life tomorrow night somebody other than me or your Daddy will put you to bed and boy my darling do I feel emotional about it. We’ll be away from home too and you’ll be with a sitter we’ve never met in person before.. and I’m dreading it. We’ve left you with a sitter before now of course but always when you’ve been tucked up in bed and none the wiser to our absence. And honestly my chest feels a little tight just thinking about it. And panic is wrapped around my limbs. And I want to cancel and just stay home with you in my arms. Because I can’t bare the thought that you might wonder where we are. Or wonder why I’m not there to sing Goodnight Sweetheart before you close your eyes.. and then I catch myself. I’m going to allow myself those feelings tonight because tomorrow, well tomorrow I’m going to get it together. And I’m going to hold you in my arms and tell you that you’re safe, that we’ll be right home and that we love you so very much. And then your Daddy and I are going to go have fun together, just the two of us. Because if I can let the knot in my stomach unclench for a minute I can see there’s nothing but goodness here for us all. You’re going to do great. We’re all going to do great.
Last week they planted our little seedlings in the ground. This year she was actually helpful and really enjoyed the whole process. Last year she was more...”helpful”. Whether they’re helpful or “helpful” I think it’s still amazing to give them the chance to get their toes dirty and plant roots into the ground ✨💛⠀
A friend suggested that I write a blog post about starting a garden for beginners, so, today I’ve done just that! If you are new to gardening or feel like you haven’t had tons of luck, check it out and let me know what you think!! The link is in my bio! xoxo⠀
One day not long from now I’ll beg you to hold still long enough so I can hug your not so tiny little body or kiss the cheeks that used to be so chubby and I’ll try to remember what it was like when you were always so close by. And I’ll regret the times I checked my phone instead of holding you tight. And I’ll regret the times I put you in your stroller when you should have been wrapped close to my chest. And I’ll regret the times I couldn’t keep my cool and I checked once again whether it was almost bedtime. And I’ll wish for the days of teething and trying to get you to sit down in the bath. Because soon enough it’ll be me in grocery stores telling a new mother to hold on because it goes too fast. Because it does. First slowly, then not at all, then faster than you can comprehend.
So forgive me when I kiss you in front of your friends and make your cheeks turn red. Forgive me when I tell you the story of your birth for the 3 millionth time, tell you how it changed my life forever and brought me more joy than I could possibly comprehend. Forgive me when I tear up when you make me proud. Because My boy, know that however big you get I’ll always be just here hold your tiny hand in the grass by the peonies.
