Friday Reflections – April 21

Happy Friday! It was my husband’s birthday last weekend as well as Spring Break. To celebrate, we headed down to Portland for the weekend. We hadn’t been to the Portland Art Museum and decided to check it out. I love how art connects the past and the present. I have had such interesting conversations with the boys in museums. It makes topics that are sometimes hard to discuss easier when you have to face the topic full on through art.

For the last couple months I have been going to physical therapy for my back, hips, neck – all of it! I wish my past self would’ve paid more attention to the importance of strengthening one’s core. Before PT I literally didn’t even know where my core was but boy do I now. I’m finally moving past PT and am going to start pilates. Finger’s crossed it will be enough to push me over the hump.

Easter baskets with Pokemon, chocolate and legos. Don’t you love that sweatband? He wears it 24/7 in the house and I’m hoping he’ll start wearing it out because it’s so darn cute.

Easter morning, rainbows and a spectacular bowl of ramen round out this week’s favorite moments.

Rhubarb also makes me so happy to see. I used to eat rhubarb raw when I was a child. Can you believe that? So incredibly sour. It’s much better stewed with some sugar and spooned into yogurt or oatmeal. Believe me.

Now onto the weekend. Ease into it with laughter, friendship and hopefully some sunshine.

Cheers!

Rachel

The Portland Art Museum had this beautiful collection of silver from King George II. Why don’t gravy boats still have lids? It makes so much sense.

This looks like I hit a buy 3 get 1 free sale but alas it is just my stash of physical therapy tools. I’m hoping this is the last of it (and that I look as amazing working the mini ball as the model does!)

We made it home from Portland in the afternoon, so the Easter bunny was a little late. All smiles though from the kiddos.

Spring at its best.

I’ve had my share of ramen by this point but this is by far my favorite place. Thankfully I get Mike’s soy sauce egg because one is just not enough.

Ruby red rhubarb always brings a smile to my face.
