This past Friday marked the beginning of Autism Awareness month.
Saturday was World Autism Awareness Day.
Many prominent buildings worldwide light up the night sky a beautiful blue to shine the light on autism.
I change my facebook profile pic to one of my faves and lit it up blue:
I carved out some time for me. A fellow ASD mom (who has become a special friend) and I decided to treat ourselves to a manicure on Friday night and to kick off Autism Awareness month we decided to go blue.
I arrived home to Sean and a kitchen full of more friends, with whom I had a few drinks.
I was pretty much kid-free from Friday night until Sunday morning.
I felt completely recharged having spent those 36 hours doing very little parenting and spending a lot of time with a lot of friends. I was reminded this weekend of the many great people who surround me.
It was just my baby boy and I. For the entire day.
We hung out in bed being silly and making each other laugh. We snuggled on the couch watching tv. We played Garage Band on the iPad which was just plain fun.
All of the blessings that autism brings to our life shone bright.
