sometimes it takes some stale hamburger buns to put things into perspective

Life has been crazy, to say the least, around here lately.

It's been hard for me to sit down and blog lately. I've been exhausted. The house is a mess. I can't keep up on laundry. Everything has just been... crazy. When I created this blog I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't use this blog to vent. This would be a positive place.

But today I realized that not everything is positive all the time. That's life. Some days your tired and cranky. And some months you're tired and cranky. Not everything is always colored pants and perfect baby and gluten-free muffins and homemade baby food. Real talk.

But some days everything seems extra hard and extra unfair. On those days I realized that I just need to walk away. Not forever, but for a little while.

So on Saturday I grabbed some stale hamburger buns and Sage and I went outside to feed the family of ducks that have called our yard home. I closed the door on our messy house and I did my best to forget about the laundry and the dishes and the unmade beds and the toys on the floor.

We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. We fed the ducks and picked dandelions. We played in the grass. We giggled. And that's what it took for me to step outside of myself and remember that life is good.

Like...really really good.
