these are the moments...

the mood is set
the sound of jazz fills the air
the scent of lavender and vanilla
rises from the bubbling hot spring that is my bath tub
only the soft flicker of candlelight keeps me on this plane
but then, the door slowly creaks open and before long
i am surrounded by barbie dolls on a play date
and the infectuous giggle of a very happy child
these are the moments of life
that soothe my soul. sigh.
~~~
hope your weekend is filled with loving moments.
one love.

Bonjour Se'Lah, barbies in the bath now that takes me back. I posted a pic almost exactly like yours from the garden of Monet yesterday, so know that you have a little bit of France in your life.
Au Revoir for now

Long, luxurious baths were my salvation when my children were growing up. Some of my favorite memories are of lying submerged in the bubbles while my daughter, perched on the toilet seat, gradually turned from seemingly casual questions about makeup and hair to more serious issues. Sometimes we solved the world's problems, sometimes we cried. Almost always we giggled before she left the room. Oftentimes, her little sister would join us, playing on the floor nearby, listening.

Oh yes, priceless little moments that will one day be missed but not forgotten...

Have a beautiful day!
Love and blessings,
Robin
