My Life :: Mommy has a brand new Valentine!

Valentines Day is a special day for me because it's a personal anniversary when I like to celebrate myself and a difficult choice that I made once upon a time.  That choice opened the doors for me to experience life in a whole new way.  I rediscovered things that I love to do and found a creative freedom that gave me new wings.  Then I met the love of my life Nicholas Solon and my life was totally changed.  Almost seven months ago Nick and I welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world and life has changed again!  Eleanor Jane is the light of our lives ... and she makes every day special.  But this year Valentines was especially good.  A couple of weeks ago I found an awesome baby-sitter.  So Nick and I had a night out on Wednesday ... it was our first date since before she was born.  He surprised me with reservations to Dudleys which was wonderful!  And then yesterday - I spent Valentines Day loving on Eleanor and taking her out for a special mommy-daughter date.  First we got dressed up in our Valentines outfits and went to story time at Joseph Beth's book store.  Then I found a few irresistable books that I just had to get.  After that we went to Georgia's Kitchen and had a fancy little lunch.   Then we came home and had a very necessary nap.

Here are some recent photos of my little lady ...

Happy Valentines Day Eleanor Jane!

I wanted you more
than you ever will know
so I sent love to follow
wherever you go.
It's high as you wish it. It's quick as an elf.
You'll never outgrow it...it stretches itself!
So climb any mountain...
climb up to the sky!
My love will find you.
My love can fly!

Make a big splash!  Go out on a limb!
My love will find you.  My love can swim!

It never gets lost, never fades, never ends...

if you're working...

or playing...

or sitting with friends.

You can dance 'til you're dizzy...

paint 'til you're blue...

There's no place, not one, 
that my love can't find you.

And if someday you're lonely, 
or someday you're sad, 
or you strike out at baseball, 
or think you've been bad...

just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair.
That's me, my sweet baby, my love is right there.

In the green of the grass...in the smell of the sea...
in the clouds floating by...at the top of a tree...
in the sound crickets make at the end of the day...

"You are loved.  You are loved.  You are loved," they all say.

My love is so high, and so wide and 
so deep, it's always right there, even 
when you're asleep.

So hold your head high
and don't be afraid
to march to the front
of your own parade.

If you're still my small babe
or you're all the way grown,
my promise to you
is you're never alone.  

You are my angel, my darling, 
my star...and my love will find you, 
wherever you are.

You are loved.  

"Wherever You Are" ~ Nancy Tillman

Julie -- As always loved the pictures of your sweet Eleanor Jane.. She is so beautiful!! I also really like the poem and found it the perfect poem to give to my almost 24 year old daughter as she makes some tough decisions in her life.. Thanks for sharing - I needed kleenex! Wishing you joy and sunshine with your little family..
