“I’m always happy with what I’m doing, because I don’t compare it to anything else, and instead pay close attention to the activity itself. I’m always happy with whoever I’m with, because I learn to see the perfection in every person. I’m always happy with where I am, because there’s no place on Earth that’s not a miracle.
life will suck if you are always wishing you are doing something else. life will rock if you realize you’re already doing the best thing ever. “
back in february i entered – and won! – a giveaway for triangle decals from the very lovely anne hill. for over a month, they sat on my desk, just waiting for me to find the time to put them up. thanks to a hubby who drove dj over to his parents yesterday morning while he worked, this mama had seven blissful hours to do what she wished.
here’s what that corner of the room looked like before. you can see it in more detail here.
as i stood in dj’s nursery, music blaring from my iphone in the bedroom next door, peeling and sticking the decals on his wall, i began to think: my little baby is already one (don’t get me started on that, because i could write a novel). at what point does his nursery become his room? because, my goodness, sometimes the things he does makes me think he’s a five year old already!
the decals couldn’t have been easier to put up. I’m talking peel and stick, that’s it. the hardest part was kicking myself for putting them up only an hour after painting my nails (helloooo index finger paint chips!) and when it comes time to take them down? just peel em off!
