Five years ago, one of the things I tried to give my life was balance. My life consisted of working and baby time. Not much time with Joe, and even less time with friends and family. After half a decade, I feel like I am starting to get that balance right. Of course, since this week really only consisted of three work days, I think that maybe the only way to have it all is for all of us to work half weeks!
Time spent with my mom and Henry. Henry's wearing a hat that I wore as a kid. My grandmother, Eloise, knit that and it was one that was itchy but kept me and my siblings warm when playing long hours out in the snow. Obviously, Henry has a big head if he is wearing a child's sized hat!
Henry tried avocado for the first time. He didn't really appreciate it much.
Joe had the week off, so he met me for lunch several times. Shown above is my plate of tastiness from Taj Mahal, a local indian place that has a fabulous lunch buffet. I love the creamed spinach with cheese.
After one of our lunches, we went to 'S Wonderful, a place that I would describe as upscale upcycle. Super cool stuff, and while I seriously considered buying those doors for our foyer as an early 35th birthday present to myself, they were way too big. And pricey. But they are oh so wonderful.
I hope you had a great first week of 2013!
