Soaking it in 01.29.11

This exchange of mornings along with my excitement 
about focusing my creative energies on interiors has reopened my eyes

(I guess I switched my focus some time ago?)

I look for the beauty in everyday things like I did as a young designer

 apples and cherries

preparing a relaxing bath

I love the light streaming through the shutters 
of my bathroom in the morning

my beautiful new interiors book 
along with the requisite Elle Decors

my toes are always hidden in warm socks and warm shoes 
or warm (and worn) slippers
I'd forgotten that the Dolly painted my nails a few days ago

always by my side
as long as she is sure she will not be bathed

not alone anymore
the Dolly getting ready for a birthday sleepover today
she is beyond excited

quiet moments are planned then dashed
privacy is a thing of the past
this is the reality of being a mother

and I soak it all in
