Lilacs, Tea & Other Miracles


Well now, that’s pretty darn true if you ask me. I spied this one my new fav tumblr. So much sweetness. And it’s certainly been a week of SERIOUS tea-ing. Two births, one just yesterday… and many cups of tea sipped by this doula. Things are going swimmingly at the shop, and I start a new prenatal course session tonight. Busy like whoa, but I like it this way. Every now and then I need to fall down and be still a few hours, but I really can’t complain. Life has been wonderful to me and I’m smiling so much lately.. my cheeks hurt!

Yesterday, just before bedtime, Gretchen and I took a lilac picking stroll through our park and marveled at how beautiful life is. As we strolled down the path, she said to me: “Mama, it’s just so beautiful. Can you hardly believe it?”

Oh yes babe. I believe it.

    That print is wonderful and so very true!

    I love that Gretchen said that…my goodness, that is too adorable. Lilacs are my favourite. It makes me sad that they are only around for a few weeks and then they go away for another year…I guess that’s part of what makes them so special though right?

    What gorgeous photographs – and sentiments! Lilacs in the park! Oh, I wish we had a park with lilacs in it nearby.

    I’ve never drank as much tea, or left as many cups untouched as I have in the nearly 5 weeks since my baby girl was born!

    That last picture is precious.
