august rush

And just like that, it's August! As of late I've been happily swallowed up by all things Rowan. I unconsciously took a step back from the internet and a bit from social media. I actually haven't gone to my blog reader in several months.

I was getting to that place. You know the one where those of us that are active on social media can sometimes go. The place where everything in your life is Kansas- colorless and ordinary. While everyone else seems to live in the colorful and dazzling Oz. And, so, I've been choosing to focus on the real. The tangible. The pleasures of good books, nights out with friends, snuggling with my husband and Rowan's infectious laughter!

I found this quote on Pinterest...I know, I know but at least it's not attributed to Marilyn Monroe or Shakespeare...but it's been rolling around in my head for months and is always there when I push play and turn on the negativity in my head.

"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not, but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for."
