you are here

i waited a long

ada and me
(she's in the beco)

i'm standing on the edge of the country with my feet in the ocean
i'm standing on the part of the map where it goes from green to blue

those are lyrics from the song you are here by the band, wait for it, lunch money. that's right, we're now loading up the ipod with kid songs! this served as the soundtrack for our road trip to and from north carolina. we played it over and over and over again. ada loves the music now, and luckily, so do we. i even caught my husband playing the cd in the car when he ran out to do an errand, alone, as in, no baby to hear the baby music! it's that good.

i've finally loaded the first half of my squam by the sea pictures up on flickr. and, of course in the 7 minutes i had to blog on friday, blogger was down. argh! so that's why there was a delay. i've also been working hard to have computer free weekends and focus on other things like continuing to unpack and set up our house. it's long overdue, we've been a wee bit busy, but i'm so happy to finally be getting the time to do things such as hang a curtain in our bedroom and a coat rack in the entryway. yup, those were the two "big accomplishments" around our house over the weekend.

we also had some dear friends visit on saturday with their little 3-year-old boy. it's been a couple of years since we've seen them, and it was just such a wonderful thing to pretty much to pick up where we had left off... albeit this time with a 3-year-old and a 5-month old thrown into the mix, but it was nice to catch up as we all strolled around town, went out to lunch and showed them around our neck of the woods.

many more pictures from our time at the sea over on flickr

it's a cold and rainy monday here in new england. some places nearby even got snow! i'm trying to stay inside and cozy while i work on my calendar. i love how 2011 is coming together so far, i think you will too.

  1. i hope you are keeping a visual diary of the travels of Sarah and Ada :) what a gorgeous shot of both your feet!

    in my car i have had Dan Zanes "Nighttime" cd in for, um, over 3 years? we love his music and i find myself listening to it even when i am driving alone. "Jump Up" is our morning song and my daughter will sing it to me now :)

    and i am laughing over your big accomplishments - i have a spare bedroom that has been on my list for 2 years now. i remember when we were first home with our daughter and i finally had a night where i could run out to shop for some new clothes and the saleswoman kindly pointed out i had my shirt on with only one button holding it together! that's how excited i was to get out the door :)

    big hugs to you and Ada
