Today was just such a good day. I'm off to bed with a full heart. A quick play on the beach (swipe for a photo in the exact spot when Flynn was Lylas current age, with a little Lyla in my tummy😭only about 18 months ago). We then headed to @grilldburgers for vegan cheeseburgers which were amazing
aaand then vegan ice cream at @benandjerrysoz (pb & cookies alwaaays)🍦 ...
and we could CHOOSE between burritos, nachos, pizza, burgers, ice cream, churros... there's probably more options we didn't even think of.
Veganism is SO recognised/catered for these days. 6 years ago it was chips and salad and if you mentioned the v-word people would look at you blatantly puzzled. I am just soooo happy and grateful because my kids, they will have OPTIONS and they will not miss out on any of the fun "experiences" during their childhood, or for the rest of their lives🤞🏼🌱🌏
It just kind of hit me I was watching Flynn enjoy his scoop of dairy free, cruelty free icecream. It felt damn good. So thankful.
I also just have these moments of overwhelming gratitude to be able to do these things. Even driving home from the beach a few days ago, I just had this moment of wooo I can drive! I have movement in my right ankle! I can walk, I can take my kids to the beach or where ever I want.
It's just gone 6 months since I was cleared after the two fractures and ligament tears in my ankle. It really changed my perspective. It was SO challenging, I don't know how I got through some of the days with two kids when I couldn't really take care of myself hahaha, I guess you just manage. It has made simple things seem so beautiful and easy. Honestly it still swells and I still have pain (and I drive Haydn nuts with my complaining). In the past I would have picked myself apart looking at this photo. However, I am just so happy. So happy to be healthy, able to walk, able to breathe. And most of all, happy to be the one they call Mama (and wife!)♥️
