Here's what's Right in Front of Me

"Here's a firm goodbye to yesterday
and the time i wasted in the words
trying to find my way to you, love

Here's a firm goodbye to all the ways
i was trying to lose you when you were
Right in front of me, right in front of me"

My Date with KAI!

yesterday i had the honor of hanging out with my favorite 4, very soon to be 5, year-old little guy:) i picked up Kai for a day of the park, ice cream, watching Space Buddies, playing I Spy and a BUNCH of rounds of TRICKY TRICKY "hiding of the tennis ball game"- if you don't know it shoot me an email and i will explain. it's good fun;)

there were massive amounts of silliness to be had and laughs til our tummies hurt. the above photo was my favorite thing Kai did. i'm framing that photo of him because at some point i will have to get rid of that christmas tree and now i won't mind because i will have the BEST memory of it.
Kai thought the above photos of me were hilarious! he made me lay down on the office floor and make goofy faces. for some reason he giggled like mad. i think he was deliriously tired but i love to see that kid laugh
all in all it was a 81-star day!
today i have a LOT of drawing to do as i pretty much ditched out on all responsibility yesterday.
it was soooo worth it!

You can pack a lot of living.....

in a bag named Sam
just in case you weren't aware:)

i decided to snap some hipstamic photos of an original packing guide that samsonite sold with their suitcases with step by step instructions on how to pack your suitcase and pack  it WELL!

it's quite a process!
11 STEPS for the hardside luggage....

and 5 steps for the softside luggage.
i may decide to type them all out at some point but for now i thought the photos would be enjoyable.
i'm off to have a date with my favorite 4 year-old on the planet!
park, ice cream & imagination station.

When I cannot sing my heart.....

my little sister leah was recently here. her stay was too short but we had a lot of fun! it was one of the best trips her and i have shared in a long time:)
she recently got a tattoo, in her own handwriting, with lyrics from the Beatles song, Julia.
she was spoon-fed them as a baby and even when she was in my mumma's tummy they were being blasted throughout our house about 95% of the time.
i love her new addition:)
i love my sister:)

i cannot wait to start this project!
