Yesterday, I was feeling solemn and heavy-hearted. I just wanted to embrace family and hug my kids.
We decided to turn off the tv and disconnect from social media for a while and enjoy the beautiful afternoon. It rained so much last week that a sunny day felt almost like a novelty.
It was a perfect day for a flowy dress, comfortable -- yet stylish sandals, a head scarf to combat the high humidity and aviators. We hung out at the park and lake. We took a moment to watch the world through the unbiased eyes innocence as she took in every bird, duck, turtle, piece of tree bark. We wished that life could always be that simple and unvarnished.
