things i’ve learnt this week / 05

I’ve never been more excited for
 the holidays than this year.
I love this time of year.  I always have.
Between the delicious feasts, 
quality time with loved ones and holiday traditions
it’s such a fun and eventful time.
I’m especially excited as this year will be Luca’s first Christmas.
And while he may be too young to appreciate
 things like treats and gifts 
the spirit of it all will surely be felt by
 the immense love that surrounds him.

Long walks are good for the soul.
One of my favorite things to do is to
take long walks around the city.
Living in the downtown core, I am in walking distance to
many staples of the city..
 the central library, the art galleryStanley Park and the beach.
It’s wonderful to have so much
 nature and culture close to home.
Also, a long walk is the perfect way to soothe little baby,
get mama some exercise and enjoy the
 beautiful backdrop that is Vancouver –
all at the same time.

It’s ok if I’m not exactly the same the person I was
before I became a mother.
I’ve spent the better part of the last two months
 not only learning about being a mother but
convincing myself that I can be one while
living at the same speed I was before baby.
Slowly (but surely) I am accepting that there will be days where
I am able to function at full capacity but
there will also be days where all I can do is
cuddle my baby boy and nothing else. 
And really, that is wonderful in itself.
