Spring Break Re-cap
Bad news about Spring Break: my kids broke a pack n play, a brand new bunk bed, the CD player in my car, and a few other things as well. I wish I could say I reacted with serenity and patience.
Good news about Spring Break: I threw caution to the wind and organized fun activities and outings for every single day. We went swimming at the Y, visited the mall's playplace, had a ball at Science Works, filled plastic easter eggs, ate at every fast food establishment in town, hiked 2 lovely spots in the valley, hunted for said easter eggs, made 'fairy gardens' with the dearest and most generous of friends, and enjoyed loads of time in the sunny outdoors with people we love. It took all week to complete the laundry, my kitchen floor is abominable, and I have a huge, messy pile of papers on my desk, but do you know what I decided? That stuff can wait. IT CAN WAIT. It will always be there. Childhood won't.
In other news:
1. I am obsessed with Downton Abbey. (Super late to the party, I know.) I'm halfway through season three. I've been requesting that Taylor call me 'darling' in a British accent. Totally swoony.
2. My in-laws get back from the Philippines in 9 days. NINE DAYS! We are excited to party.
3. Today at Bloom we are hosting the first ever Penny&Tillie giveaway. Check it here.
