Saturday Mornings.

Our schedules are hectic, to say the least. I'm working 12 hour shifts 3-4 times a week, and E is working 8 hour shifts 5 days a week. We both have weekend requirements and E's days off keep changing. My schedule, while I make it myself, is rarely constant. But lately, these last few weeks, we've had some mornings that are just us two.

Some weeks our Saturdays are really on Fridays, and some days we are still super busy. Sometimes it's the only day off that we have together and so it's the only day that anything gets done. Grocery shopping, cleaning, gardening, visiting family, seeing friends, organizing our office space, cleaning out the baby's room. We spend early morning to late night running around making life happen.

And then there are some Saturdays like today. Sure we have place to go and people to see and things to do, but right now in this morning, all that matters is just us. Enjoying a fresh batch of blueberry muffins straight out of the oven, and spending time being the two of us. I'm sure five months from now I will crave these moments that are so quiet and serene and peaceful, but we'll probably be so wrapped up in blankets and burp cloths and love that we won't quite remember what it's like to be just two anymore.

So for right now, I'm cherishing these moments. And enjoying a second muffin. Happy Saturday.
