To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

I've Gone and Done It

That's right.

I did it.
I know I may be jumping the gun. But I can't help myself.
I shut off the air conditioner and opened my windows.
I know it's supposed to get up to 90 something degrees today.
But, right now?
Right now it's a gorgeous 70 degrees and there is a wonderful breeze and I just couldn't stand not opening my windows and feeling all that beautiful it's-almost-autumn-ness.
It's my favorite time of year. The colors...the smells...the tastes.

I feel like I can breathe.

I love the heat of summer and always miss it while it's gone, but I'm so ready for kid sweat season to be over for a few months.

Then I'll feel like I can breath again, too!

Yes, my pregnancy senses are working overtime.
