We headed up to Boulder on Sunday to visit our daughter for her birthday. I accidentally dressed as if it was supposed to be like the two previous days had been (60+ degrees) and froze the whole time, but other than that we have a lovely time. It was great to see my girl settled, happy and doing quite well.
It is such an odd thing, letting go of your children. It's the thing we work towards for 18 years, but I tell you, it's an unnatural thing for a mommy to do. My kids are such a huge part of my life and they take up a lot of room in my heart.
Is there anything wrong with wanting to buy about 50 acres and giving each kid a part of it when they are 18? And expecting them to live there for the rest of their lives with their families?
Yeah, I didn't think so!
I do love that my girl is only a little more than two hours from me. Plus she lives in a place I love to be!
While we were visiting I spied a must-have-sweater (right side):
My bubble burst when I saw the $300 price tag, but I printed off my photograph and I fully intend to find a cheaper one at Forever 21, or some other store like that with tons to choose from and low prices. The winter weather advisory in the forecast makes me want to dress spring-y, especially in something coral-y pink.
Am I the only one that has a wonderful group of guys to love, who tend to stand around like this when we shop:
Next time I think it needs to be just a "girl" day!
Those boys can stay home and be manly.
This is one time I may get in trouble for posting a picture, but just couldn't help it!
