A lovely birthday

Here`s a perfect hibiscus last night in front of the Belgian restaurant we went to for my birthday dinner out.

On second thought, now that I see this picture in the daylight, its not completely perfect-but neither is anything else in nature. Look around, nature is comfortingly filled with imperfection.

Happy Birthday! I'm thinking of you and your new little man this week...
I can't wait to hear your birth story!
Best, best wishes!

Thank you Louisa!

Bad news, but maybe good news, this little boy wants another week, so we get to go to 38 weeks 5 days together!

About Me

My photo
I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
