I love cleaning off my phone and finding all the odd pictures I take for myself. These are the images I often flip through at the end of the day to remember the beauty that’s always around me.
He still crawls in bed with me most nights
Lady and Banjo
A boy and a frog by Lauren Kenzie
His new favorite Harem pants and that morning sleepy head
Sleeping off the stomach bug
These Boy jeans (a new favorite)
Learning to fall
S’mores for dinner
Because today is one of those days where perspective shifted just right leaving me desperately hopeful. Circumstances unchanged but heart so full of love and joy. It’s these little things. A silver lining, a euphoric moment that is bound to be gone soon. But because it made it’s appearance today, I stood in an open field arms stretched wide wind whipping my hair and raising bumps on my skin. The sounds surrounding something of a fairy tail. The distant sunset leaving it’s traces of light across the darkening sky. This is utter and complete bliss my heart so full it wants to burst. Nothing but thankfulness for this gift of today for the break from the heaviness of life.
Vacation is good, home is better.
Taking a little break from packing before the boys and I hit the road tomorrow. I’ll be unplugged for the week but wanted to share the code SUMMERVACATION for 20% off in my shop through this month.
Happy soaking up the vitamin D!
sipping coffee over the new SPACES from Frankie Magazine. They graciously sent me a copy to enjoy and I certainly am. So much inspiration in these pages.
Soaking up these summer days.
Filling orders and feeling grateful for this old faithful machine.
Dreaming of vacation next week!
Thank you all for the kind responses on yesterdays post. I know it was heavy and I hesitated to post for a long time. Those things are all just part of my story and past, they don’t define my day to day like they once did. But time to time those memories creep back up and need to make their way out. I know because of our broken and messed up world it’s never “safe” to share hard things but I did it because I know so many people can relate and it’s always good to know we’re not alone in the struggle to become whole. So thank YOU all for being safe landing ears for the rough emotions that surfaced this weekend. Glad I can share my life and the freedom I’ve found.
