A Day like Today

This morning, Margaret woke up crying and I woke up happy to help her. Is there anything more pathetic (or adorable) than a two year old crying for her "mommy, mommy? MOMMY??." And then the snuggling afterwards. Oh, my cup OVERFLOWETH.

My goals for today aren't what one would call grand. There will be a shower, there may be lipstick. We will walk to the grocery store and get some fixin's for dinner. Margaret will ask to watch Hercules for the hundredth time and I will let her. Tomorrow, I will conquer the world. For the next 24 hours, I think I will just float in it. Funny. Six years ago I would have held a day like today in contempt. Where is the goodness, the adventure, the gobbling up of life?

I know better now. I love today.

A few pictures my friend, Heather Mildenstein, took while we had a playdate at her oh so lovely house. And yes that is her son, Cole and yes, he and Margaret are betrothed.


  1. Oh my gosh, she is adorable!!!! So, I had a dream the other night that we were having a primary meeting (can we say 'taking over my life') and you were wearing that exact skirt as margaret only in an orange color. Haha. Can I borrow her for a day and watch her walk around in her little dress and boots? She's sooo cute!

  2. My favorite thing about Cole and Zuzu hugging is that cole's crack is showing! We're feeding the ducks at BYU at 11..come meet us!

  3. Ahhh! I love your blog! I'm so glad I found you :) You're a fabulous writer- I've been reading back and back all morning :)
