Things I Want to Remember

The way our mattress has sunk in the middle. Jordan and I move towards each other throughout the night, often sleeping with little to no space between each other and arms intwined.

Our seven-year marriage feels like a blink of an eye and yet certain moments seem from another time period all together.

The way my best friend’s kids shout my name across my store when they come visit me at work. “CAPHRINE!”

I can’t seem to get ready for much of anything without creating a huge mess: clothes, shoes, and makeup scattered all over the floor all while haphazardly eating breakfast. Haha.

The dance party breaks Jordan and I take while working from home.

Jordan’s ability to ALWAYS have room for ice cream.

The feeling of getting lost while in the midst of reading a great book.

Eating gluten and dairy-free doesn’t seem like deprivation anymore, I am enjoying the challenge (minus half & half — I miss it in my coffee!).

What small things are you hoping to remember?

  1. I’m with you & Cassie — Dan always has room for ice cream! I mean, I do too, but I have a little more discipline than he does. 🙂 I love this post so much, Catherine. I want to remember mornings like today, when the windows were open and the air was cool and I just didn’t want to get out of bed, so I snuggled into Dan a little longer than usual.

  2. Yep, another one with a husband who can always fit Peanut Butter Swirl (or Salted Caramel). 🙂 I love the one about your mattress–such sweet little things are worth defining and remembering. Bliss!

  3. This is so sweet! I think I’m the one who always has room for ice cream lol. I think I want to always remember the smell of the crisp air when Fall comes around. Especially when there are bits of fire throughout it.

  4. Love this post…just found your website thru The Pleated Poppy and I will be back! I always want to remember the small things in life because that is what I feel matters MOST!
