Life Lately...

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Life lately has been Spring sloooowly, slowly creeping in.
It has been longer evenings and the start of soccer practice(for both kids this Spring!)- the first couple practices were FREEZING but it seems like that has changed now. Thank God.
Life lately has been swimming two nights a week and purging + organizing this old house of ours.
Life lately has been picking flowers and playing in the backyard.
Life lately has been basketball games with cousins and finding a $20 Starbucks gift card from Christmas you forgot all about.

Life lately has been little reminders that my boy might be growing up but he is still super sweet to his Mama. Usually.
Life lately has been lots and lots of books and little succulents everywhere.
Life lately has been exploring on of our very favorite parks with cousins and finding a small field of blue bells.
Life lately has been my first Sunday morning coffee on the front porch and new magazines to drool over.
Life lately is the sweetest dog ever and finding him(once again) in the funniest places, thinking that he is more human than animal.
Life lately has been EVERYTHING in bloom- flowering and green and growing.

Life lately is reminding myself everyday to find the beauty in the busy, stressful and sometimes ugly.
It is stepping back to see how much there is to be thankful for and happy about every single day and to teach my kids to do the same.

Life lately is good.


  1. Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference x x

  2. I always enjoy your writing and insights….happy to see the pleasure you take in the small but wonderful things. The Girl On the Train….have heard from both those who enjoyed it and others who did not...reading The Lake House by Kate Morton right now and still reading from Big Magic, not quite finished. I need to update and use my blog more often...sometimes easier to just post pictures on Instagram but then miss the reflection of a blog post.


leave me a know you wanna.
