here...

i got a few mails and calls yesterday. where? are? you?




well. after i got lillie and grae off to school, i sort of crawled back into bed with esmé. don't tell uncle sugar. i like to cultivate an impression that i'm way too busy for your errands, mister.

about thirty minutes {who am i kidding? it was an hour. plus the thirty minutes.} later, mémé yelled without even opening her eyes.

MOMMY! COME UP HERE AND SNUGGLE WITH ME! she says the same thing every morning, varying only in vehemence.




but this time, i was right smack next to her. and i replied, bonjour, mon amie. comment ça va? i say the same thing every morning, varying only in the cartoonish depth of my pepé le pew accent.

her eyes opened. wide. and then she seriously squeezed herself a hug before she covered me with kisses.

this is the best day ever! she declared. exaggeration runs in this family.

what? why? i'm admittedly beyond slow in the morning. but also? how the heck could she know it was already the best day ever? that usually doesn't happen until, like, noon.




because you're here.

which is exactly where i stayed all day and all night. right here. it always surprises me, does it you? how little it takes to make someone happy...

i'm afraid it's tragically annoying, how smitten i am with my family this week. not to worry, though! i'm almost all sure lillie or grae - or if you're really lucky, both! - will be in fierce moods when they get home from school, and this love affair will be replaced with a post about things i bought to distract myself from the drama in my casa. i will try my best to be more interesting tomorrow. speaking of interesting, dun market is. very. plus affordable. very. found by the always very interesting pour porter. she gets an extra very because she earns it daily. have you visited yet? oh, you should. you really should. have a sweet day, friends. xoxo.

Oh yes....absolutely. I am always amazed at how little it really takes...did I mention that the two of you are precious and I adore you? Thank you for yet another link to an amazing place and though I missed you, I would have stayed right there too. :)

oh, karey. you're interesting every day. don't you dare think otherwise. i think we all need mornings like the one you had yesterday. i take one like that at least once a week. except my snuggles are with cats rather than children (no matter where you look you find love).
but it really was the best day ever, wasn't it?

lisa montgomery said...

...and I'm sure your best day ever to, just having heard that. *swoon*

"i like to cultivate an impression that i'm way too busy for your errands, mister."

genius!

Simply Mel said...

Ohy yes, this makes me want to do the same exact thing ~ because really, it is what 'best days' are made of, non?

that little post [or so you think] is all it took to make me happy

Elizabeth said...

Lazy snuggling sounds amazing :)

Shayna said...

Pour Porter said...

Thank you again for the kind words. :) Was wondering where you'd got to, but am glad to hear it was with family!

That is precious! How nice to make someone else so happy, just be being there :)

Amy said...

More interesting tomorrow? Oh, mais non! It's just the kind of warm snuggly thing I wanted to read today.

Amie aka MammaLoves said...

First, she wants to marry my youngest right?!

and b) i love that you reference pepe le pew.

Vintage Simple said...

I'm feeling all warm and cozy...! Thanks. And I just imagined you making the pepe le pew impersonation - I'm glad Bill and I are not the only ones we who talk to their kids in cartoon voices! We even have one we reserve especially for our dog - we narrate her thoughts in a special voice. Noah thinks it's hilarious.

Anyway. What a treat. I'm off to snuggle with my boys..!

xoxo,

Kristin @ Contented Me said...

lucky you. ;)

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

mornings are the best time - my boys aren't awake enough to try and continue the ever growing process of being tough guys, and they let me snuggle.

glad you had a sweet snuggly day, treasure!

this sounds so much like my b i can't stand it. i wish i could be so optimistic about the day in front of me...perhaps if i could start every morning right there next to him cuddling, i would declare the very same thing! xo t

Going through my overstuffed feed reader tonight and was blessed with this gem. Truly stunning. Lucky you.
