more time with the boys, days that don’t last so long, a house that smells of fresh bread and cookies and a box full of favorite recipes, a cleaning routine that doesn’t involve stress-speed cleaning at 7PM on a Sunday, greeting Mondays with open arms, watching the sunrise in places we’ve never been before, exploring our city like tourists, dinner at Stadtkrug with the boys and an evening stroll down the cobblestone streets, and a long vacation- the kind that makes the rest of the world melt away.
putting a tree in the same corner year after year,
putting holes into freshly painted walls,
snuggling up during Christmas break,
hot chocolate with marshmallows,
cooking meals again,
finally, finally planting roots…
