Pictures by Mily Cooper Photography Sometimes, you just need a mommy and me date. Earlier this week I talked about about important lessons that I feel like I need to teach my daughter. Well, on the flipside……sometimes you just need time to sit together and to eat blue donuts. Right?!? As Lydia grows faster than I can stand, I know the day will come all too soon when she doesn't want to sit with me at the mall. The day when her world is full with just mommy and a blue donut? Will pass sooner than my heart can stand. So on days like this, I try to soak it all in. The messy blue frosting, her utter joy when I pick her up from school earlier than usual, the extra time wandering around the pretty pink donut shop……all of it. I'm well aware that my type a personality has a constant agenda and checklist. And one of the biggest things on it lately? To just be with my little one…..before I blink and she's not so little at all.
Side note. Yes, I'm wearing double denim. I avoided it forever….and now…..I love it! Go ahead mamas, take the plunge. It's my favorite new outfit combo!
