Auntie Lulu

I love being an aunt.

Because I still need to rest a good bit, I’m continually making choices about how to spend my time — and many things just don’t happen.  So bike ride or walk the dog?  (The dog usually wins.)  Grocery store or work?  (Usually grocery store.)  Clean the kitchen or blog?  (Usually blog.)

Last Friday, I chose this:


We went to tea at the American Girl Store (so exciting!).

Saw lots of baby animals at the farm.

Wrote “stories.”  (Starting her young.)

And painted her nails with 16 different colors.

I’m so very, very thankful to have the energy to be able to do this.  Sweet fun.
