Coffee at Home with Her
22 Sep, 2012
Do you hear that? That’s right, nothing but coffee brewing and crickets chirping. I think I can get used to this ‘alone’ time. I LOVE my babies but I am immenesely enjoying the mornings when all my kids are in school. It gives me time to work on my manuscripts besides all things of HVFH.
At this moment, I sort of feel like I’m spinning my wheels, doors that I thought were open are closed. The sound of the doors slamming shut creates a restless affect. I’m anxious for HVFH to grow, for my next book to get published, and for so many other dreams that I dare not whisper aloud in this moment, for fear of having to let go.
Have you ever felt that way? Maybe it’s because winter is just around the corner, we instinctively know we will be hibernating within the four walls of our home while winter snow dances outside our windows. Maybe I’m just too ambitious…maybe.
Who knows, maybe its just me! I’m so ready to move forward and unveil new writers, a book club, and our newest photographer Catrina. She is currently teaching me how to use my new camera. It’s been working well because I’ve been able to shoot some pretty interesting photos, like the cupcake incident this week. I’m not a domesticated enough to be a stay-at-home-mom. My husband and I had this conversation last night, sometimes he thinks our roles are reversed, he enjoys being home, whipping up gourmet meals, digging around in the garden and folding towels–I don’t, nor am I good at it.
But the kids did eat it! The middle of the disastrous cupcakes had a sweet spot, the kids LOVED it.
Time to sign off for now, I have to take my woman child shopping. It’s so strange to think we made it to this day. If you’ve followed my story from the beginning, you would know that I never dreamed of being a mom but I became one at 17 (For more of the backstory, click here). You would also know that I didn’t know what our future looked like but wanted to be the best mom possible for my daughter…13 years have passed and here we are.
Oh and here is a sneak peak at Catrina Maxwell-Gray’s photos. She is the owner of 2 In 1 Photography.
