Embracing The Gift Of Each Day

Lately, I  find myself choosing 
to embrace the simple joys of each day. 
I say 'choosing' because quite honestly, it's been a wee bit crazy around here.
Josh has been working '8 days a week' and I have had a few deadlines weighing on my shoulders.
But amidst the chaos life can bring, I want each day 
to be a day FULL of simple joys.  
Each day is a gift and I want to treat it as such.

So here's a few ways we've been embracing the simple joys:

This girl

Oh this precious girl

Has been baking up a storm

And she can make THE MOST delicious scone.

 These two lil' monkey's are taking horse lessons.

 Oh the JOY of a dream coming true.

And last weekend we escaped to the mountains again for a sweet few days of camping.

 Even though it was another rainy weekend,
God never disappoints with the beauty of His creation.

 Camping brings its own simple joys.

 Endless hours of rock throwing
(I'm afraid Clara has gotten her form from me)

 Stick boat races

 Painting rocks

And time to take goofy family photos.
 These pictures make me smile out loud.

So completely blessed
I hope you're able to embrace and fully enjoy the simple moments of each day.


  1. Oh, we'd all be so much better off if we'd learn to enjoy the "simple moments." Looks like you and yours are doing a good job doing just that! Hapy 4th of July!

  2. Oh I hear you friend. Time goes by quickly and the days seem crazy but I try to stop several times throughout the day and just take it all in. One day all too soon this time with my kiddos will be over and I don't want to miss any of it.
    I have such kitchen envy every time I see your kitchen. :)

  3. You are having a great summer!! I love it! And I miss you!!!
    I would love a scone to go with my coffee, if she wouldn't mind. Thanks! :)
