I looked around today and felt lucky that each person in my Durango family — two brothers, Mama, Papa — is in a place in life that allows us all to gather at home. In the middle of the day. In the middle of the week.
Surely this time will burn up quickly, and we’ll return to overly busy, over-scheduled, hectic lives. And then we’ll feel lucky to have the few moments on the few occasions we can gather.
But not today. Today we are reading books, watching Dirty Harry, meandering to a workout here or an errand there. Today I did a lot of blog-reading and inspiration-pinning.
Wanna see some things from today’s Pinterest collection?
