one day

before we left for california, emma went wild. art projects turned into painting the wall, sidewalk chalk ended up on the furniture, strawberry juice on the couch and pencil marks on the door. 

i didn't clean the mess before i left, i photographed it.

truth is, i really don't mind. one day i'll miss these things. one day i'll look around the house and it will stay clean for longer than 5 minutes. one day there will be no more fingerprints on the refrigerator. one day i will have no more cherrios to vacuum up. one day...

my friend cara summed up my feelings in her recent blog post HERE.

hoping, so hoping, the sweet little mess will still be there when i return home.
