me
its been two weeks
four days...
and i feel like emily
plus two
its amazing the feeling of being a mother
they both sleep in my bed
harrison nurses and sleeps wrapped in me all night
arden hates this a little
days are strange
is this my october?
is this my life?
things have changed
i have changed
and nomatterwhat
i am still
emily
last night i drove fast in my car
alone
that volvo never felt so good
and yeah...i listened to the pixies
i was on
the freeway
pushing 90
and all i could think of was
my journey as me
today i feel
ready for whatever life decides
to throw at me.

I love your pic! You look amazing. Being a Mommy is so wonderful. But it is so important that you dont loose yourself in day to day live. Always make time for yourself you will be a better Mommy if you do. Keep driving fast Emily.... never change.

That picture of you is fantastic, and beautiful. I love it. Isn't it funny how when something changes like that, and even though it wasn't there before it kind of feels like it was there all along.
