is coming up later today! *wink*

KEEPiNG iT REAL
You know that cute little routine I do with Ella every morning?
The one where we drop Ema off at the bus stop...
Ella sticks her head out of the sunroof and waves to the bus driver...
and then proceeds to wave to neighbors as we make our way back to the house?

Well...yesterday, I pull up to our house...
I pull into the garage...
and I'm so distracted by the landscapers at our house...
carefully ensuring I don't run anyone over...
looking at them in my rearview mirror...
watching them in my sideview mirror.
Next thing I know...
Ella tearfully and frighfully says, "Mom!"
I look up and in my routine/process of rolling up the windows...
I realize I'm in the middle of closing Ella's head in the sunroof!
Seriously!!
Like her forehead was being pinned in the sunroof before I even realized it!
Luckily there was no real damage...
except the emotional trauma I caused Ella and myself...
Needless to say...
we BOTH were much more cautious this morning.
Can you believe that?!

And now you know...*blushing*

Since we're keeping it real...I trashed my list and had to start again. I realized that my list wasn't of things I *wanted* to do but of things I felt needed to be done. It was more of a chore list and that didn't make me happy. Luckily I managed to get a list that does make me happy. Very ready to get started.

Wonder Woman - Oh I'm so happy you shared your "keeping it real". I'm SO glad you trashed your first list because you are right; There shouldn't be anything on that list that felt "daunting". This is a fun journey. Your list should be filled with things that make you happy!!

Thrilled you are participating!!

I have been to Le Macaron French Pastries, in Winter Park. If that is the one you are talking about of course. They are fabulous. The macarons are delicious and they had many different ones to choose from!
