a good busy day

Our kitchen wall today

We had a bunch of little things on the calendar yesterday and after a couple of rougher nights (which 3 years ago would have been hooray! nights :) I woke up in the morning feeling a bit overwhelmed with the day ahead - lots of little places to be plus suddenly all of the started/unfinished projects at home felt like a bit much.

But it turned out to be just a nice happy day. I came home from the first round of activities in the morning and April had washed the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, tidied the house, and left neatly folded piles of clean Isaac laundry on my bed.

We had kids and friends in and out throughout the day and it was just happy and lively and fun.

Jordan gave me some sweet motivation in my paint-choosing angst and  helped get things moving by painting all my sample colors all around our kitchen (!) after the kids went to bed.

And then off to bed and I was just surprised how smoothly and happily the day went :)
