Isn’t this, ‘hot like fire’ or maybe just, ‘hot like summer’ springtime sun such a welcome relief from last week’s rain and the endless winter before it, lifting our mood, providing us with a spring in our step and a smile on our faces… Oh, and isn’t being a carefree toddler the epitome of, ‘living your best life’?
This really feels like the season Florence has blossomed along with the blossom. A baby this time last year, a little toddler girl this one. A fully grown lively, chatty, stubborn, utterly hilarious human being with a cheeky personality and a penchant for eating my food (and I HATE sharing my food-ha)!
Seriously though, I know I will always remember this period as the one where I finally felt 100% myself post partum and could slow down and appreciate life without a blanket of tiredness weighing me down (thanks to more sleep) plus more harmonious hormones and I’m finding my work groove again balancing three kids with my career.
Memories I want to remember forever are as follows:
Al fresco dining, bear hugs with friends, apple blossom confetti petals garnishing the grass; glassy, rainbow-coloured bubbles drifting towards the sky to the sound of happy clapping, sibling kisses and cuddles, and traffic light coloured ice lollies melting in Florence’s hands, on the floor and all over her clothes *cry!
These really are the times of our lives.
