Enjoying :: summer weather.
Waiting :: just a few more weeks until our seaside vacation!
Liking :: the fact that my Roman James has been sleeping later in the morning.
Wondering :: if I am making the right decisions, always.
Loving :: how smart Roman grows each day and how he is becoming his own person.
Hoping :: that I always remember to count my multitude of blessings.
Marvelling :: at the glory of wildflowers in July.

Needing :: strength and confidence in the fact that I am always doing my best.
Smelling :: baby powder.
