Week in Review

This is a post dedicated to my swing tree...

{this pic is from just a tad over a year ago taken on my 26th bday-  yup, no baby bump there! not one little smidge}

Something that happened this week... you might have heard if you follow me on twitter:  My swing tree broke!  Along with the tree, a little piece of my heart broke too.  Although the tree survived the storm a couple weeks ago, a light rain Sunday afternoon was the demise of my swing's perfect branch.  The tree still stands, but it is no longer able to lend itself to joyous occasions of weightlessness, nostalgia, and whimsy.  I'm not quite sure we have another tree on our property that will work the way this one did...  But alas, this week has still been wonderful!
