last night i came “home” to dinner and a little mini family.
jodi (aka: preggers, pregnant mama, pm) was quite the homemaker while i was at work!
that woman has more energy than anyone i know – to be up sick all night, clean the house, make dinner and keep it all looking good – she’s my hero.
i was ordered (yes, ordered) when i walked in the door after a 12 hour work day to change my clothes and come to dinner. no joke.
i so adore my favorite pm. just like old times.
dinner with the missionaries. a few laughs by tj and me at preggers expense.
chats about life back in minne.
some lovies by the two dogs (lola waited outside my bedroom door today).
i’m clearly a great house guest if the dogs can’t wait for me to get back!
lots of baby talk with the pregnant mama.
off for a walk together to stretch her legs.
then, i took my run.
i was in heaven. really.
i ran through the neighborhood at dusk with the fire flies.
tonight for the first time in a long time…
i felt connected.
i felt i belonged.
i felt at home.
it felt like the days running in edina and plymouth.
making dinner in shakopee – calamari to be exact.
even driving in a green little honda with two crazy girls.
these are the days to cherish.
