Happiness is: the calm after the storm

My house is quiet.

The girls are finally sleeping soundly. Marc is driving his dad (who was so wonderful to fly here all the way from Florida for Lily’s birthday party) back to the hotel. Bella is snoring on her little green bed. And I just took a deep breath for what feels like the first time today.

Lily’s birthday party and all the friends and family and food and gifts and squealing children and chocolate-icing-covered faces are swimming through my head. For all the planning and anticipation in the weeks leading up to her party, I’m astounded by how quickly the whole thing whizzed right by.

It was loud and chaotic and totally fun. I’d do it all over again tomorrow if we could.

But I sure am enjoying this silence.
