It happened this past week...a moment.  I wasn't sure how I felt about it at first.  When did it happen?  HH and I went to see the Book of Mormon (more about that later).  Anyhoo, it was at the Keller Theater which is about 3 city blocks over and 7 city blocks down from where we nest in Portland.  We were going to the theater after all...so, I made an effort to dress up a little with some cute open toed shoes.  The walk down was fine...but...the walk back up hill was so challenging that I decided before I went out for happy hour I would change my clothes and put on my Nikes...OMG...when did I tip over to that age where sensible shoes made more sense than cute shoes?!  It happened in a moment...just like that, sigh...HH was so sweet...he said, the shoes are cute but we need to be able to walk uphill to happy hour, lol.  Practical guy.

I also realized that life's moments cannot be ignored...that it had only been a month since we made our trip to my nephew's wedding...and, in that one month this little guy had made a leap in growth, not only in stature but language.  

...and when did my baby grow up???

There weren't many stitching moments this passed weekend...all I got done was a little mermaid tail on my Quilters Affair project...But, I figure it is more important to enjoy the journey than to rush to reach a destination.  That it is the sweet quiet moments that carry you through the challenges in life...so, why rush them?
