living large

I always say I want to freeze time.  Every parent does.  When I see a baby I have a hard time remembering when Lexi was that size, in that stage, etc.  Every stage is blissful.  Every moment turns into a memory too quickly. 

When we moved into the apartment we didn't really "decorate" it much because we don't plan to be here long.  We hung some things in Lexi's room, bought some flowers, and hung a print of Lexi in the living room.  We are keeping things simple while we are here (I *hope* our simplistic desires follow us to our next home).  Even though we said we weren't going to decorate much I did add a print in our living room.  It is a large photo, a very large photo in fact.  I'm not kidding when I say it is large.  Actually, large is an understatement.  The print is larger than life size.  It is my most favorite photo of Lexi as a four year old thus far.  I am freezing time as much as I can to my ability and this is the only way I know how.

We are living large right now and are in our happy place.  In a small apartment?  Yes.  We have each other.  We are healthy.  Our family and friends are healthy.  We are full of life and enjoying it to the fullest.
