Breakfast In Bed

Troy and I do a trade off on the weekends. We each get one day that the other lets us sleep in. Saturday was my morning to sleep in. 

Charlotte and Troy spent their early morning hours making homemade blueberry muffins and smoothies. Only one thing made it better: ditching the table and moving our breakfast party to the bed. When it comes to enjoying the simple things in life breakfast in bed is hard to top.

A valentines celebration our way.
We had flowers, we had chocolate, and we had cheese.
We also had a small crisis involving the oven and bread but all ended well. And baked.

We celebrated love. An abundance of it.

Quotes and Milestones

The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.
William Morris
Isn't that the truth? That the real happiness lies in holding hands while walking down the sidewalk, reading bedtime stories before bed, movie nights, dance parties, and baking cookies. 

Daily life brought changes this weekend in the form of a "big girl bed". An impromptu purchase last weekend ended up with a mattress on the floor trial period. A trial period which I should add made for some interesting sleeping arrangements. 

All in all so far so good. Charlotte has always been great at adapting to new things and this has proved to be no different. She enjoys the extra room, but surprisingly has not yet taken advantage of the freedom. I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

Enjoying the little the three of us reading bedtime stories together in the new bed. Creating memories.
