The littlest things

I just cleaned out my bag and found:

1 pterodactyl (or pteranodon? what is the difference anyway?)

2 plastic knights

1 yellow paper clip

a handful of little white pebbles with one piece of peppermint gum, one white bead, and a tiny silver helmet mixed in

2 baby hats

2 pacifiers

Buzz Lightyear

3 baby toys

1 twig

I know these little items are insignificant in themselves, yet I feel so proud of the treasures my little ones bring into my life every day. I feel so glad that I get to share in their little part of the big world. My kids give a shape and meaning to my life and I’m so fortunate to know them and help them grow. Last night Ella went to bed early so I had a chance to put Ben to bed. I laid next to him and he asked me to hug him tighter and sing him a song. I felt like the luckiest, most important person in the world.

Here are some photos I stole from Mo’s phone from the past few weeks:

The best thing ever


My life is not always so sweet and quiet as these photos. When it is and we capture it I love to look at images like this and remind myself of why I do what I do and how to enjoy the life that we have.

Thanks for reading.
