Small things.

I've been feeling like there aren't enough hours in the day.  You know that feeling when you have so much to do, you can hardly begin?  Anyway, there are some small things that are making me happy that I thought I would share with you!

I mentioned last week that I've been setting up a little space for our baby among the boxes.  It's just a tiny area in the hall, but it makes me happy every time I walk by.  I can't wait to use that adorable bassinet (I spent a fun-filled evening putting that rocking base together myself!), and I'm completely in love with my Shanna Murray decal that arrived the other day (she's having a big summer sale here!).  There's also a trunk full of sweet baby clothes with a changing pad on top in Jack's hallway bedroom.

Also, the one lemon our little porch lemon tree yielded this year is finally ripe!  I went to feel it and it fell off in my hand.  I have no idea what to do with just one lemon, but maybe we'll enjoy some ice water with lemon on the porch soon.  I'm proud of that little tree, and even more proud of myself for keeping it alive!

Are there any small things making you happy lately?


  1. your very own lemon?! i love that!
    so symbolic of your time in california.
    can't wait to welcome baby jack!
    love, lindsay

  2. Oh man. That feeling of not having enough time is a way of life for me right now! I have an enormous mental list of the things I'll tackle when I quit my job in a few months and we become a family of five. :-)
