This Moment:  A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember via Soulemama

      Erin – that was earlier in the week. It’s been SNOWING for the past 2 days. Col and a friend had a SNOWBALL FIGHT yesterday on May 19th.

    is this what they mean when they refer to “domestic bliss”?

    A marker basket. Genius. Then they don’t have to dump out Every. Single. One. to find the color they’re looking for.

      I’m sewing a series of skirts for Rose. Everyday I ask “do you want to wear one of the new skirts I sewed for you, Rose?” And she says, “nope. I’m going to wear a dress, Mama.”

      And I say in my head: okay, another chance to practice non-attachment, waa-waa-waa.

    So nice! I love those moments; I had one yesterday with my 6yr old; we were sitting on the kitchen floor in an embrace watching the cupcakes rise in the oven. I just wanted to hold onto that moment forever…

    glad you are still sewing. Clearly it’s time to learn dressmaking. Judy can teach you everything you will need to know! she’s an ace seamstress of course. xoxo

    It doesn’t get a whole lot better than art, togetherness, and sunshine. Happy weekend, Rachel!

    you give me hope! can I really look forward to this in a couple of years? Avi keeps talking about when he is 5 (and 7 and then he jumped to 13 and 14, which freaked me out just to imagine) and “baby” is 3, etc . . .just around the corner, I’m afraid . . .

    We took a long urban walk together today and I’m loving Berkeley more and more; walked back down Prince from Telegraph and thought of you!

    Avi was wearing a dress and Rosie’s flip flops and earned many smiles from local folk (:
