waking to liam’s chubby hands brushing the hair from my face instead of my alarm. cooking our breakfast for two to the songs from the secret of kells. drinking two cups of black coffee before they go cold. a nap before noon. watching two episodes of downton abbey with absolutely no interruptions. sharing our daily afternoon apples snuggled in bed. dressing up in hats and blankets, pretending to be rompin’ stompin’ cowboys.
