And 3+ months after my last 'life lately' update, here we are. (For new readers, these posts document some bits and pieces of recent day-to-day life via good ol' non-fancy cell phone pictures.) Between the holidays and business/order madness, the end of my pregnancy, Essley's birth, and taking care of a new baby, I suppose I've been so focused on the 'big things' that I haven't really stopped and taken much notice (at least not here on the blog) of the smaller pieces of my life. In all honesty, over time I've really been utilizing Instagram more for this purpose anyway. I know that not everyone is an Instagram user, however, so I'll do by best to continue to share now and then on the blog as well. (If you are on IG and would like to follow there, you can do so here, under user name bubbyandbean.)
Who else has been forgetting to slow down and pay attention to the smaller moments lately?
