This is my last week of maternity leave before I go back to work. And while I love my job for the incomparable DaySpring and am blessed beyond belief to work from home, I still work full time.

So the last few totally baby focused, undistracted weeks? They have been a gift. One of the best I’ve had in years.

That’s why it will be pretty quiet around here the next few days. A photo or two. A sentence or two. Comments off. Just quietly storing up this.

The miracle of motherhood.

The ordinary-extraordinary.

The divine with a little dirt under its nails.
