[going through old family photographs; fresh cut peonies from the backyard; my favorite bag with my favorite coat hook; ice cream; Kellan; best buds ever.. G and Kellan; afternoon drinks with my favorite nephew; pretty packages in the mail; book club].

[starbucks afternoons and mocha cookie crumbles;  naps with Kellan; enjoying the fresh air and sunshine with G; more naps with Kellan; saltwaters and new doormats; painting... so much painting; Susannah's This I Know{!!}; new mixed and matched silverware; drinking beers that James likes].

I can explain.....
[1] we painted our house. bright yellow. it is sunshiny and happy and we love it. it was also a lot of work.*
[2] we're starting to feel better again since the break in and get back into a {somewhat} normal routine. but it isn't always easy. I don't feel like the same person. I feel changed. Hardened, somehow. I don't sleep the same. I'm not comfortable doing some of the mundane things around the house that I used to. and I'm certainly not comfortable leaving G in the house alone anymore. so yes, things are different...
[3] Kellan is cute as ever. He is having a procedure in July which we hope will help with his breathing and keep him progressing in that department. otherwise, he is doing great and happy as ever.
[4] my dear uncle took a turn for the worst healthwise, and I am sorry to say that he has now passed away. we will all miss him so much and any extra prayers that you could send for my aunt and cousin would be appreciated so very much.
[5] G has had a lot of visitors lately and he is loving every second of it. and sleeping all the rest.
[6] I have been eating my weight in brussel sprouts. we practically have them for dinner every night. dead serious.
[7] I haven't listened to much else since Bloom released. oh, Beach House.
[8] Brian and I are addicted to Supernatural and watching the episodes on netflix as often as possible. we are currently in season four. obligatory photo:
I swear the plot is insanely good too.

[9] I want someone to do my hair like this. really badly.
[10] my panic attacks are back and I hate them more than ever.
[11] this is the first week of Susannah's Exploring the Senses e-course and I am so excited to dive in!
[12] I have discovered the magic that is pottery barn's free shipping section.
[13] I'm leaning toward a front door similar to this color to go with the bright yellow:

[14] we learned yesterday that G will have to have an eye surgery in the near future. I am very scared and sad, but if not treated properly, Guinness will be blind in a short amount of time. it is possible also that he is pain due to the current condition of his yes. so obviously, we will be doing the surgery. 
[15] today is my day off and so I am going to go get my day started... visit my aunt, bang trim, pedicures and sushi with stacey, and hopefully some thrifting before going to see the Marshall Tucker Band tonight. today will be a good day.

*Thanks again to everyone that helped us tackle the house painting. We are so grateful and love you all and it would have probably killed me otherwise.
