couldn't have picked a better day to unleash the crazies down at the farm. we got caught off guard by a burst of rain that sent most scattering to their cars as if they were melting haha. not us though, we took full advantage of having free rein and making a mess of ourselves.
denver and his leaf umbrella inventions, and london stuffing her skirt pockets with pet rocks to take home. smh.
love the way the rain kissed nev's face and that captured moment of her swinging on that magnificent magnolia. a sweet soul embracing the good things in life, and learning to toss the bad.
life is good as long as you stop to look at the little things. slowing down and doing what makes your heart happy.
cool rain on a hot day, puddle diving, shrilling screeches of joy that remind you to look up and pay attention, and then getting the back seat of the car completely soaked. yep, that's how we roll.
hope you find clarity in the moment and allow that next rain shower to kiss you right in the face!

my baby boy was so excited for swimming lessons but he soon realized its not his thing.
he has a thing against water in the face so i guess he figured he could get all the way through it without getting wet! he lasted three lessons and after the final meltdown due to the instructor forcing him underwater for the second time, he decided swimming was not what its cracked up to be. these were supposed to be happy times and my poor guy was scared to death. after the lesson as he was dressing, he made the decision to not come back until he is ready. i totally support that. it was his decision to sign up, and its his decision to bail, totally up to him. he got what he needed out of the experience and that's all that matters.
kudos to the instructor for putting up with his hard little head and cries and struggling arms, she sure earned her keep those 3 days haha.
I appreciate and am grateful for the beauty in the whole experience though, including the random lady that walked by me with the turban.
loving my guy for trying ...and lovin my guy for letting go of what did not feel right. <3 <3 xoxo
“All I am saying can be summed up in two words: Trust Children. Nothing could be more simple, or more difficult. Difficult because to trust children we must first learn to trust ourselves, and most of us were taught as children that we could not be trusted.” – John Holt

another lovely weekend with my all time love. farmers markets and new dread wraps and cuddles in bed till noon.. my idea of a saturday evening is drifting upstream with the sexiest bearded man alive, listening to pandora, soaking up more than just the sun. we're soaking up each other, and loving every minute of it. (even if it consists of getting hit in the head with a paddle cause i cant help but be so close).
its a relationship of complete freedom to be, and acceptance, and keeping our minds open, going with the flow, trusting each other and the universe, and i have never been happier.
