Yesterday was one of those days that makes me imagine the future.

We were snowed in.

We built a pillow fort. Read books. Played with puzzles. We hit golf balls. Rolled on the floor. Made a hearty veggie soup. We danced. Made up silly songs. And sillier hats.

We had a terrific day.

Pretty soon, Conal will be two. Then, in no time, he’ll be off to school. There will be fewer and fewer days like yesterday. I imagine myself looking forward to snow days once he’s in school so we can again share the types of moments we’re fortunate to share now.

I love our time together.
