Jake and I played inside all day to escape the 107-degree heat. Around 4:30, he heard the garage door and fast-toddled to greet his daddy, and then the three of us embraced said heat at the swimming pool. After a solid hour of kicking and splashing, we came home and started on dinner. Matt grilled Hawaiian chicken while I prepared the sides and Jake helped empty the lid drawer. After that, it was baths, stories, snuggles and bedtime for Jakey. With our new-found adult-only freedom, Matt and I watched the news, got in our PJs and then cleaned our bathroom together (how romantic!). As we were putting everything away, I spotted a yummy salt scrub and recruited Matt to join me, so we climbed onto our counter and chatted about our day. And then I paused for a second and thought, I love my life.
It really is all in the little things, you know?
