A recent photo of my Mom in her new abode on the water. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I love you!
Reading Bringing Up Bébé by Pamela Druckerman. It's a really fascinating look at how French parenting differs from American parenting. The differences, for the most part, have really surprised me--for example, it turns out that the majority of French infants, starting as young as 2-3 months old, sleep straight through the night! I suppose I was expecting to read that French parents are looser and freer, but this bit of evidence points to something different.
Writing this post, and not much else.
Listening to this absolutely beautiful song from The Great Gatsby, which we went to see yesterday. In fact, I was blown away by the entire soundtrack--it was a high mix of 20s Jazz Age music, rap and hip hop, classical organ music, and synthesized beats, and often these were layered on top of each other in the most creative ways. My husband commented that the movie was very similar to Moulin Rouge in that way (and then we found out that these two films share a director). I almost want to see it again just for the music!
Thinking about how deeply I slept last night. My husband downloaded a white noise app on my phone a few weeks ago because there's an obnoxious dog in our neighborhood who starts barking at 1 am every night. So far, the white noise works like a charm.
Smelling nothing. A clean house, I suppose!
Wishing my husband didn't have to travel this week.
Hoping my brother's move out of his dorm goes well! He's finished with his freshman year of college--I can't believe it.
Wearing nothing cute at the moment.
Drinking tea with soy milk--my blog friend Betsy tells me that the English would be horrified by this!
Loving my Mom. I'm so thankful that we just keep getting closer as the years go by. I hope that someday soon, we will be physically closer too, so I can see her and my Dad more often than once every few months.
Wanting to play the song linked above on repeat all day. I won't, but I want to.
Needing to discover more ways to use coconut oil. I'm very into eating healthful oils these days. Yesterday, we made homemade popcorn in coconut oil, tucked it into my bag, and ate it in the movie theater. We're so rebellious!
Feeling very positive and hopeful today. I love this feeling!
Clicking on some fashion shots from The Great Gatsby. This is my favorite look from the movie. I just adore that headpiece.
Here's my Mom with my Mother-in-Law. Two beautiful ladies, if I do say so myself! We hope you both have a wonderful day.
Linking up with Lauren.
