Things that make me happy:

Spending time with family


the smell of popcorn

watching my children laugh

waking up next to Ben

summer breeze

watching football on Sunday


Sunday drives

visiting with friends

crisp fall mornings...
going on a walk with my babe and Gussy

....this tells the story of our beautiful morning.....

The chores are done the kids have gone to school, the fall air is beckoning us to come out and play... Blayre loves the dandy lion seeds...they are so fun to blow on and watch them scatter to the wind...
we found treasures..
walked hand in hand..

..threw our treasures into the canal..

I am focusing on the things that make ME HAPPY!...the really see the little things that often get overlooked.
Sometimes there are just GOOD days.
The ones you seem to get right as a laugh, you love, you play and you feel completely satisfied in the small moments of your life that will ultimately become the sum of who you are.
I wish I could document all the cute noises and giggles watching this little one play..

Aside from the completely obvious difference of Jensen being the first boy, watching him grow has almost been a renaissance of parenthood for me.

Not sure why exactly....maybe the sense that these opportunities to relish and LOVE on our little ones really are numbered!

And the reality....of the fleeting moments of our little one's lives..

Jens' football season came to an end this last week! We were both happy and sad! I think it is one of the hardest things these little boys have done in their lives thus far..they work these little ones to the bone and they seem to relish in it! :)

I will not miss the 3 hour practices every night. Hopping from Football to Volleyball was just too much for me this year...looking forward to Ash driving in 6 months! :)

Barnum & Bailey

We had so much fun at the Circus! Anz loves animals and was just mesmerized the whole time!
I really dragged my feet on going and ended up just loving it! We can't wait to go back next year!
