Where did the time go?

This weekend we too the little one to Napa {yes again} if you read my blog you know that I adore {obsessed} with the Napa Valley and if I had my way I would move there tomorrow without a second thought. I love the sense of community and the small town feel without it being to small if that makes any sense.  Little ol me has even been scoping the real estate market up there just wishing that my husbands company would just get up and move there...but those are just in the pie in the sky dreams - I however do have a feeling in my gut that one day we will be living there. Just a little hunch.  Anyhoo.....yesterday we decided to bring the kiddo to Train Town a little fun place to take a little train ride through the tiny town, pet and feed some goats, ride some rides and overall have the little one go friggin ape shit. After that we had a picnic in the park and while husband and I were sitting on the grass glass of pinot in our hands watching GG playing with her cousins o thoughts start to wander. As I looked around I am like where did the time go? I remember being at this same playground years ago with my parents when we used to make the drive from SF up to wine country. I have always liked this park in the middle of the town square in Sonoma it and  I love to be near anywhere where Mr. Wes Craven stood because this same town square and town was used for the the filming of most of the Scream movies. Time goes by so fast and it boggles my mind that I am in my 40's and I am now a mommy. I love that I now bring my daughter to the same spots and experience the same awesome things I got to experience as a child. I had a great childhood and I want to make sure that my daughter has the very same. It's time like these where I just want the clock to stop in order for me to savor every friggin moment because the time goes by so fast. I know this sound cliche but you need to stop and smell the roses and make sure your enjoying life. It is so easy to get caught up with the daily grind and such BULL shit that at one point you stop, you blink and holy shit your 40,50,60 something......Here are some pics from the day not too many because I was chasing two toddlers around and because I am super ass paranoid I was on pervert watch at train town and the park.

All I know is that every time I see my little ones face with that big happy expression on her face all I can do is smile and think to myself how did I get so damn lucky......

I know what you mean! It's crazy to see Evie doing the same things I remember doing as a kid. There is so much to be said for that sense of continuity and community.

I've decided that I should get to Napa one day. But I don't even like wine that much--is there anything else to do? I know I'd take lots of pictures--it seems so beautiful out there.

Feeling the love......
