Life on Cottage Hill: PAGES

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Life lately has been filled with long summer days outside, stretching as far into the evening as possible with lots of popsicle breaks in between. It has been filled with sneaking in as many naps as possible to escape the pregnancy exhaustion but more often times than not just dreaming of napping. It has been filled with cheering on a little peanut who has started to use the big girl potty and loves modeling her big girl panties, almost as much as she loves the potty treats. It has been filled with work- of course- but also relishing a few extra days off here and there to go on adventures with my babies. It has been filled with watching Jackson learn to ride his big boy bike and soaking up how good it feels to watch the pride fill up his face. Life lately has been full of life, really, just simple, sometimes too chaotic, often times exhausting and uncomfortable but always lovable life.

hello from san francisco.

I'm in San Francisco for a quick business trip. We are going to be in meetings almost non-stop so this morning I had about an hour of free time and took advantage- I hailed a taxi and asked the driver to take me to the Golden Gate Bridge. He was an old man originally from China and he was so excited to play temporary tour guide. He took me to the bridge, showed me where to jump out and take a few photos and then drove me around the city a bit to see cable cars and to drive down the famous Lombard Street. He gave me the history of everything we passed and when he dropped me back off he told me it had been the most fun he'd had in a long time driving his taxi. I think I've found my new way of getting the most efficient tour in a new city...
