Grammatical Error

A conversation from last night:

Jake: "Say you love me, with all the feeling you can muster."

Julia: "I love you with all the feeling I can muster!"

Jake: "Thanks honey, but that's not exactly what I meant."

Julia: "But I said it..."

Jake: "Yeah but 'with all the feeling you can muster' was more like a subtitle. Like a separate claus."

Julia: "Oh."

Commas are important.

Rose Colored Glasses

I made an unofficial decision at the beginning of October to take a little break from blogging. My life has taken so many twists and turns since Rhett was born with the postpartum depression and all the learning and growing that has come from that and I wanted some time to process and understand the past 3 months.

For the first time in what seems like an eternity, I feel like my old self. Like I have my life back. I hope never to have to go through that again, but I am sincerely grateful for the experience.

I think because everything seemed so dark for so long, everything now seems so much more beautiful, so much more peaceful, so much more enjoyment, so much more bright.

Kisses from Jake and sweeter, smiles from Rhett make my day, taking a walk restores me, being with friends is comforting, being a mom is a joy.

Maybe I'm just walking around wearing rose colored glasses, but for right now I'm OK with that.
