Last night I had a dream about my dream. I was in Firenze Italia soaking up the culture, art, food and people. The dream was rather intense and I remember details. Such as the intricate carvings, the intense colors and the details of the architecture. I remember the hotel that I stayed in and it was full of Italians, not your typical American tourists. The language was so beautiful to listen a song. I also remember the smells. The sweet smell of Tuscany and the not-so-sweet smell of the streets in Florence.
She is calling out to me. I need to revisit so I can relive this dream!

Today is a special day! Two of the four loves of my life turned 1.
This past year has opened my eyes to many things. I have found a new respect for my mother, and any woman who has labored a child. I have also found a new respect for myself.
Before the boys arrived I think my life was in limbo. I was going through the motions of a serious adult who works, but who forgot how to play. One who was tied up with paying bills, yard work, house work, errands, etc. Without having fun while doing so.
It's as if I'm an adolescent all over again, learning about myself. I'm finding ways to be creative again, I'm finding joy in the little things as I did when I was a child.
Thank you Max and Aidan for opening my eyes.
Life is good!
