{ Winter PJs + 37 }

mercredi 10 décembre 2014

Today I turned 37!
Yes I did! I have always loved celebrating my birthdays.
 I love getting older because I hated being young and unhappy.
With every year come new joys and a better understanding of my purpose here.
I love this life, my life, even when I don't like it!!

Aujourd'hui j'ai eu 37 ans. Et oui!!
J'ai toujours aimé fêter mes anniversaires, et vieillir, vieillir: j'adore! Si!
D'abord parce que je détestais être jeune et souvent malheureuse. 
Avec chaque année, je découvre de nouvelles joies et une meilleure façon de faire cette vie. 
J'aime cette vie, j'aime ma vie, même les jours où je ne l'aime pas bien! 

Today went well and simply, as usual!
We went to the park with a friend and her kids.
I cooked, marked students papers and then had a 4 o' clock party tea at another friend's house.

Cette journée s'est déroulée simplement, mais joliment.

And I sewed!! and finished Maxence's Winter PJs in this fabric I luuuuuuurve!!
 J'ai même trouvé un peu de temps pour coudre et pour finir ce pyjama pour mon Maxence, dans ce tissu que j'aimeueueux!

So we had our little photo session and it was a gorgeous moment to share with him, my sweet baby boy.

Nous avons fait cette petite séance photo, un des meilleurs moments de ma journée, un moment exquis avec mon adorable boy. Je trouve tellement de joie dans sa gentillesse et sa bonne humeur.

I delight in him and his kindness and his playfulness. He makes me feel good about myself and my mothering!

I used this pattern by Peek-a-Boo: Winter PJs.

J'ai utilisé ce patron par Peek-a-Boo et ce tissu trouvé chez Motif Personnel. 

I cut in 5 for my 5 years old tall and slim boy and it fits perfectly.

I finally found a shop in France that sells some gorgeous knits, including that fun one.

And so guys, that was me today in the cold and muddy park with my 2 favorite people!! AT 37!!! Life is good and I intend to savor every bit of it with great intentionality.
"Life is our only dessert" says Ann Voskamp, "too brief, too sweet, too delectable to hurry".

Alors les amies, ça c'est moi, ce matin, dans le froid et la boue, au parc, avec 2 de mes personnes préférées!! Vive mes 37 ans!!:)
