Leave the dishes in the sink.
Saturday morning is never sweeter than sleeping in until 10am and sipping on hot coffee that brewed itself (curtesy of Mr. Coffee with a built in timer, #dreams). Somehow we’re watching impractical joke Youtube videos and the next thing you know it’s almost lunch.
C studies as he does so faithfully 10 hours a day, every day. And I did a handful of errands before we made plans for a date night.
I curled my hair that still refuses to get along with the Mississippi water, and we drove into their “hipster” town Fondren. We sat outside until the stars came out and snacked on chips and a cheese dip we didn’t care for, but good drinks to make up for it.
And have you seen Zootopia?! The cutest. We laughed so hard and stayed up too late, and the dishes are still sitting in the sink. But it’s ok, because these days won’t always be like this, and I’m going to remind myself to savor it.
Because on the days that get busy, and the years that we feel overextended, and the times when life feels overwhelming, I can remember this... the times when it was ok to leave the dishes in the sink. Because we were too young to care and too busy enjoying life and relishing in the simple things. When we weren’t trying to impress anyone, and our kitchen was just ours. And our life was just ours.
So leave the dishes in the sink. It’s ok.
