adding a little space to my step.

I feel thankful for.

love songs :: Right before my husband left the house to play soccer, he turned on Pandora and found an alternative indie love songs to play for me. You know, so we miss him more. Rowan's theme song for cruising around the coffee table and chewing the foamy corner safety edges is Friday I'm in Love.

autumn :: It's gray and moody outside. We went for a run along the beach trail, and the sea is so calm that the kite and wind surfing shack was closed. Even though the shoreline along Alameda isn't what you imagine when you imagine the beach, it still feels great to live so close to the ocean again.

past :: The only time I've lived within walking distance to the water was in Puerto Natales. Also not the picture you conjure when you think about going to the beach. But it's damn beautiful. Even in subzero temps. It's not that cold here, but last night I dreamed about the hooded puffy jacket I sold before we left Patagonia. I must have kicked off the covers and caught a chill.

forward :: This morning's run was my 10th comeback run (meaning 10 starts and 0 follow through) since I was pregnant. Gettin' there. Scenery and space are a big deal. 

present :: Rowan is asleep. I'm trying to spread out a little and take deep breaths. I am an open cocoon. 

Wishing you a weekend fully of scenery and space!

What a glorious picture! You'll get back to running in time -starting is always the hardest part!

You definitely need to go to one of SF's top restaurants as a reward for being a really cool mama ;)

I think that is an excellent theme song for cruising around the coffee table! I think I'd choose that too.

PS. I've already posted the recipe. And hey, of course we'll meet. Definitely at Rowan's wedding (remember the blog aunts in the back!) but hopefully sooner. I have to see SF one day, I simply have to. My best friend has a family there so maybe I'll travel with her.

I'm always trying to find the groove to get into running. It's hard!

It always takes a while to get back to the pre-pregnancy
tolerance, but suddenly you will be there. I am starting to run again next week:) Thank you for your lovely comment!

I love this whole 'what I'm thankful for' thing. It feels odd to do it at first but does really make you feel good.

Just stopping by again to say hello :) And you are right, the museum was the Getty! I love it! Definitely worth taking a trip again if you can! They have Medieval and Rococo art, photography, and more like some of the great impressionists! I think I heard this month they are getting some of Picasso's work too.

I'm impressed by and envious of you runners. I like to exercise a lot, but I don't like running. I wish I did--it's so efficient! And free.

Serkan is sweet, and I'm long overdue for a Rowan visit. I'm barely gonna recognize him!! :(

Oh Heather, how much I heart this post!! I love the way you write, a reflection of your naked heart. Of course hubby played the song to make you MISS HIM. LOL. You are absolutely adorable. I have been trying to be the voice of my blog as well, making it like more of a journal. I find those are my fav blogs to read... like yours!! An inspiration.

Lots of love to you my sweet friend.

Well done on the run! When is the next one?I have a cheek to ask since I am the world's laziest runner - will only go if I have someone else to run with.....

I love the photo and love living by the sea - I can't imagine not living next to the sea. I can see it from my house - well the mouth of the river anyway which is over 2 miles wide.

Happy day!
