just logging in with so much to say but also very tired eyes (which means all the words may have to wait). i hope you’re doing alright and have had good moments in your week that surely had rocky parts, too.
there is this little thing miss beatrice often does where she reaches her arms up for me and says, “mama, i want to hold you…” meaning she wants to be picked up, and be held. but to her, she isn’t being held. she’s holding me. i am the one being held by her. as she’s tucked on my side hip and patting my back, as she snuggles into my shoulder and rests her head on my chest. she really is holding me in countless ways, and this week, during my rockier moments, i appreciated being held as i held my tiny two-year-old.
i hope you can find someone this week to hold and, in return, hold you. be it a physical hug or hold or through the digital gift of facetime and text. and in the meantime, if you wanna scroll through a whole lotta photos from a sunset drive josh and i took a few weeks back where we pulled the car over and he stepped behind the camera once again like the olden days and we laughed pretty hard as he said things like, “naomi, this feels very free people circa 2015…” and “it’s like we have the old holga camera!”….then you’re in luck below. :)
