Memorial Day 2018

May 30, 2018

We have been in high gear around the Hill house as we prepare for little sister Hill's arrival. From checking off projects to fitting in last family-of-three moments, we feel like we are moving non-stop. But, it's starting to catch up to us, especially this mama who hit full-term on Monday at 37 weeks. So while we had a list of things we wish to accomplish for our extended holiday weekend, we also didn't push ourselves and snuck in naps while our toddler napped. It was quite glorious to snooze in the middle of the day with the windows open and the sound of rain pitter-pattering down. 

Needless to say, we were able to keep our weekend low-key and simple, which was just what we needed. The slow pace and good eats kept us in one of our happy places as we celebrated the many freedoms we are given because of all those who serve to ensure them. I hope your weekend was as sweet and as lovely too! 

We even introduced Greer to one of mama's childhood favorites....chilly willies (you probably call them something totally different like freeze pops!). She was just smitten with this icy treat, and since I'm craving all of the shaved ice I can possibly get, I was just as happy as she was! The three of us spent a good chunk of the weekend sitting on our front porch watching the rain come down. See, slow and simple and perfect.
