Slice of Life- 21/31- A Day with the Fam

Early morning:                                                                                                                            5K Color Run- reconnecting with old friends; gossiping as we walked; hurling our white shirts into the path of bright, powdered splats; finding an enjoyable excuse for exercising; sharing the morning with long-time friends: moms and daughters

Mid morning:                                                                                                                              Hunting down the recently re-opened lunchtime favorite; waiting not-so-patiently for the decadent chicken and waffles; laughing with college kids; savoring these final moments before they depart

Afternoon:                                                                                                                                    Traipsing the  grocery aisles for apartment essentials; hunting for hidden treats to stock their shelves; debating the benefits of avocados;  tossing in last-minute packs of spearmint gum

Late afternoon- late evening:                                                                                                  Binging on Gilmore Girls with daughter and hubby; rooting for different guys; laughing at political references and witty jokes; baking potatoes for homemade TV dinners; wishing she could stay a little longer

  1. Sounds like a great day…except the part when she’ll have to leave. 😦 I have an 18 month old daughter, and I’m cherishing all my moments with her. Thanks for posting!

  2. I’ve always hated the leaving! Mine are mostly gone now, with appearances around vacations and Christmas. It always breaks my heart to see the back of them walking away!

  3. What a wonderful day you have described here. I appreciate the strategy you used of breaking up the day by the specific time of day it was…early morning, late afternoon, etc., I especially love the last line…how these run of the mill activities are the things you will miss about not having your daughter near by. Thank you for sharing!
