This little guy is cute. I mean, really. Eyes + Smile + [Any Object] = cute.
And its not like I need any more cute in my life. I mean, really.
Just look at this kid:
I don’t embroider (much) and I’m still a little surprised that I signed up for Wild Olive‘s Summer Stitching Club. The smiling sunglasses were super quick to stitch up – well, ok the French Knot eyes gave me a bit of trouble but I’m good now.
I’m hoping for a summer of cute. The past few weeks have been a bit tough and I’m having trouble shaking this mood. And I think its because I’m not running. I’m giving my heel a few more weeks before easing back into running and I admit that I’m having a tough time.
I bike. I go to yoga class. I get in the pool and swim. But doing these other sports just remind me that I can’t run. More than anything, I miss it. I miss the early morning air and the sweat on my face. I miss feeling the tiredness in my quads throughout the day. I miss the emotion-leveling effects that come from running.
I’m not-so-patiently waiting for June to end and then I can start easing into running again. I’m not convinced that embroidered sunglasses will lift my spirits. They are for-sure not distracting me from my injury. But they are cute. And I can use some more cute right about now.
