every year, i think that february is going to whiz on by because it’s a few days shorter than other months. yet, i’m beginning to think that it’s not because it has less days, but that all of life, days & weeks are happening very quickly. before i know it, the weekend comes, bringing some of our most cherished days, with no school or work… and free time for whatever. the weeks begin to pass, each providing newness in the events happening. but i can’t seem to figure out how to make time move slower.

there’s a movie we love, called About Time, that i now (thankfully) own. it’s a story about living every day of our ordinary, extraordinary lives to their fullest. when i recognize that i’m not embracing the special or spontaneous moments that are, so often, right in front of me, i try to remember that phrase and the theme of this movie. life happens. and i want to be sure i’m living it to it’s fullest. daily. it’s not always easy, and certainly doesn’t come naturally, but it’s something i hope to pass onto our kids and share with others in my life.

so, at the end of this wonderful month, i look back at the things we did: the people we were with, in our home, and elsewhere; the food we made; the joy on our kids faces; the sun that streamed in through our windows; the celebrations that were had; the love that was shared.
