Yesterday was a reminder how sad life can be. Between the terrorist attacks and a bunch of politicians visiting Seattle (reminding me how lame this election cycle is getting) it seemed a very weak representation of life as it could be. Yesterday was a downer, except I didn’t feel down at all. I got some work done in the morning, finished a couple house projects, did some Easter shopping with Ava, then picked up Hannah early from school and took my girls to the dentist. Ava found a giant unicorn in the dental office to play with, she called it her friend (it was hilarious) and then she was just chatting so unreservedly with all the people in the office. Just happily chatting away talking about how she was going to get a new toothbrush from the dentist, and how he was going to clean her teeth and get the sugar bugs out…
The evening only improved on the afternoon, and I ended feeling quite happy. I sometimes wonder if I should feel guilty when bad things are happening around the world, and I am enjoying my life. But I don’t think so. It’s not that I don’t care, I do, but I also think I should be grateful for whatever goodness is in my life, and that I should be happy in the good things, appreciate them. When bad things happen, I’m even more grateful for all the wonderful things I have and it makes me want to enjoy them even more. Especially my family. I don’t want to waste a single day.
Anyway. There’s your deep thought on this Wednesday…
Now about this skirt.
I wasn’t sure what I thought of Pantone’s 2 colors of the year choice when I saw them. I’m always up for a blush pink but with the soft blue? Meh… and then I saw this skirt and the choice suddenly made sense.
I’ve always been a sucker for dreamy duds, and this skirt is completely dreamy.
My kids were trying to decide if it was pink fluffy clouds or lots of balloons.
I’ll take both.
