Needless to say, we were happy to say adios to the terrible two’s and hello to the terrific three’s (I named it that…positive reinforcement in my little world) and rightly so since Ellie is turning a proverbial corner. We went for a quiet, discovering, nature walk today in our neighborhood and it was a blast! I did have to bribe her a little to come home from the park with a “chocolate treat” but it was completely worth it and I think we started a weekly tradition of getting out of the house mid-winter and going for a walk no matter if it is cold or not.
We took down the tree last weekend which can be depressing but we rearranged our living area a little.
I loved how this made the rooms more user-friendly.
We eat in the dining room way more than we did in the other “traditional” place and it is much cozier in the living room too.
At Christmas, we have always had the tree blocking the front window all of December and that made little natural light come in but this year we placed it in the now living room and it made such a difference.
