Today I went shoe shopping!!! On a mission for a new pair of kicks for our trip to Vancouver next month, I took myself to gravity pope. Ah, I love it there. I came home with a new pair of Converse.
Oh how I love trips out by myself. I don't have to worry about pulling the carseat out, unloading the stroller AND I don't have to carry a diaper bag. It's so lovely to carry a purse - it feels so small and light now comparatively. Though I really don't hate my diaper bag, which when out with Ember, does double duty as my purse.
My time alone comes to and end around 11:45 am. Fine by me. Honestly, by then I'm usually missing Ember. Driving home this morning, I was a little sad that I missed seeing her big smile that greets me when she sees me for the first time every morning. But it makes me happy that, at least once a week, Andrew is treated to it.
