I am very lucky to have my Mondays. Instead of rushing to work and keeping up with all the weeks busy activities , I get to be a stay at home mom for just one day. Actually a stay at home Aunt, but it seems just as rewarding. I watch my niece Piper on Mondays and we have the best time! She forces me to slow down and laugh a lot. Last week we went to the zoo(as seen above). Besides a little scary Gorilla experiece, the day was absolutely wonderful. This week we did a little Christmas shopping at Nordstroms with her Grandma and had a ladies lunch. We are very lucky indeed!
