Girl’s Day Out

by Lisa Donovan

Right now she is napping, but in about an hour, my little sweet daughter and I will go out on the town. My husband and son are working in the studio today, being brilliant artists, and so she and I will take a picnic at the park and laze about in the bookstore. She is starting to talk pretty conversationally lately, making things so much more interesting. I get soggy and teary just thinking about how she is changing. She laughs so heartily and is just so sweet that it makes me want to squeeze her… god, she’s just so fun. It is rare for us to be able to have this time alone together.

I can’t believe that we have to be so busy all the time that this isn’t the norm.

Lisa and Child

Seems backwards, doesn’t it? All in all, though, we are lucky. We have crafted a fairly livable schedule that includes all of us getting a little of what we want and a lot of what we need - pretty darn close to paradise if I do say so myself. Days like today make all those hours spent on my feet, chasing dollars, so worth every minute. We work hard to have this, and this is worth anything I could have ever asked for.
