:: noticing the moments ::

taking some time to reflect upon my week…


:: taking the pup outside, first thing in the {cold, very cold} morning…then running back inside to grab a camera, because wow…the sky

:: thinking about my sisters, my mom and her husband…because even when we’re not catching up on the phone, my love for them is really big

:: the four of us playing this game

:: when i don’t feel like making a totally separate lunch for myself {because my kiddos turn their noses up at much of what i like to eat}, this is quick and satisfying:  i have fond memories of eating this soup as a child and my daughter seems to be following in my shoes…so she has her bowl {regular} and i have mine {plus a few handfuls of kale and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper}…both of us satisfied {there was a cheese melt for my son}…i tell them that someday they will like kale


:: reading through the comments on the giveaway post…y’all made me smile and laugh, and even pause in sympathy…i hesitated pushing the “publish” button on that post…so, so glad i did…i cannot tell you how much i enjoyed all the comments left!!!  {the winner has been posted in the original post}

:: feeling so good about what is happening in this space here…see above point

:: barbara’s very first post is up today at our collaborative blog with jennifer deville catalano, makings of motherhood…read her wonderful take on texting here

:: so very grateful for my kiddos’ violin teacher…besides being talented as a teacher and performer, she just “gets” my kids…good things get discussed in their lessons, things that translate from music to life

  1. RAMEN!! Yes, that is a favorite here too. As bad as the salt content is, it seems that putting veggies in it counters that, doesn’t it? I would like to think so :). My kids are warming up to kale, but I haven’t put it in their ramen yet (insert devilish grin here).
    Have a great weekend Michelle!

  2. I was way over 40 before I loved: kale, and black olives. Now I can’t get enough of either. My son was 20 yo before he had lettuce and tomato on a hamburger…some people just take longer than others.

    Have a lovely weekend, I enjoyed reading everyone’s randomness.

  3. My kid’s don’t like kale either, but I love it. My new favorite is sauted red onion, garlic, kale and green beans all mixed together along with a side of eggs, my favorite breakfast [for now].
    Have a great weekend.
