Love Day

I don't know if I owe it to the new "diet", Jack sleeping more at night or just getting my hormones back in check post-partum. But whatever it is, I'm loving it. I feel as if I have a new lease on life these days. It's been a long time since I've felt this good. Yesterday I got up early and got myself ready for the day. After I took the girls to school, Jack and I met mom in town and we went for a great walk. The weather was beautiful. It was a bit cool, but the sun was shinning and I couldn't bear to exercise inside. After our walk I got to this beautiful girl's class for a Valentine's Day party...

Mrs. Cathy wasn't having a formal party for Ella's class, so I just poked my head in for a quick kiss and an "I love you" for my big girl. When I picked Lucy up we headed home for a fast bite of lunch and then headed outdoors until it was time to pick up Ella. She rode her scooter...

While Lucy played, Jack hung out in his exersaucer. I enjoyed introducing him to Mr. Sunshine!

After Ella's violin lesson, she came home to a Valentine's inspired decorated dining room, complete with a candle lit dinner. The girls were so excited.

I made Erik these yummy treats....

and he got me this WONDERFUL surprise...

I can't tell you how special yesterday was for me. It was honestly a perfect day. Life is good. God is good.
