Everyday Beauty : Day 5

5 Sep

Ducky Goes Walking : {Everyday Beauty} ::: A challenge to try and capture more of the everyday.   A little beauty amidst the craziness. A month to be a seeker of beauty.  30 photos to see the simplicity and loveliness of the here and now. :::  Please feel free to join me; and share what moments you capture.  If you play along anytime this month, please leave me a comment.

For these moments:

  • fresh basil turned pesto
  • the farmer at the market who threw in an extra bunch just to be nice
  • the basket of free bread donated from Trader Joe’s
  • Labor Day and the celebration of relaxation
  • a littlest lady who slept until 7 this morning – just to celebrate Labor Day for mama
  • and napping again as I type up this post
  • potty training going better than not
  • another batch of peach jam made and packed away
  • last swims in the community pool
  • fall dress shopping for Sophia – she wants the blue one with flowers from Land’s End.
  • mom’s time out early Saturday morning – coffee, my journal and knitting.  I came home ready to see the ladies again
  • a freshly vacuumed downstairs thanks to my husband
  • Sophie carrying her baby in a “Moby Wrap” and wearing her gold sandals.
  • Ella telling me at bedtime that I am the best mom.
  • a fresh turned page in my planner and the new start to a week

For these moments, these pauses, the grace of God in the moment, I am so thankful.
