Trees again. Can't see the forest. Can't hear them all fall. Looking for beauty in chaos this week. #tree #desert #joshuatree #throwbackthursday
Looking up for things, because I want to be ready for things to look up. On the lookout for the tiniest signs of the smallest bird soaring. There must be a bird somewhere. This summer has been a jet lagged blue blur without the jets. Days spent in hospital rooms, fitful sleeps and disturbed dreams. Weeks cut into days by tiny white hot slices of sunlight to sting my tired teary eyes. And always those blazing blue skies with praying, swaying palms, glimpsed thru the car windows. I'm not really here to enjoy anything right now but I see it cruising by as I pass thru the in-between space of these difficult days and nights. Looking up and begging to feel the sunshine on my cheeks again.
Over the mountains and thru the tunnel, to grandmother's house we go.
Wake up at 7? HK says nope. Monday morning lethargy in full slothlike swing at Casa de Chaos.
My kids made a Buzzfeed style Mema top ten lists poster for the hospital room. Listening to Nat King Cole. Not sure any of it is cheering her up much. She's had a very rough time. All prayers are welcome. Nobody should suffer like this, least of all my sweet mom.
I found this #summertravel road trip photo in the archives and it made me laugh. @marlymaso & @hunny.nut.cheerios being so typically themselves. We were stopped in Oregon - Ashland I think and Ani didn't want any help climbing up. I can't recall if she made it but it started pouring a minute later and we all got completely drenched. ❤️ #daughters #familytravel #traveldiary
Coco just being her cross eyed self. #whitecat #cats_of_instagram #tgif
From my last trip out to Avalon. Does anything say summer in Cali more than a fish and chips shack on a pier? 🌞📷🎨#catalinaisland #visitcalifornia #pier #fishandchips #summer #summertravel #goplaces #wanderlusting #californiadreaming #adventureawaits #islandlife #filtered #manipulatedphoto
White cat. Black sheet. That's how I'm rolling. Nothing in my life can be simple right now. Also I get the butt end of the cat because she is not happy about the dogs in our home right now. #home #momlife #pets #whitecat #cats_of_instagram
