Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
I had a weekend full of time spent with my husband and children in which I just felt…..grateful.
I have a tendency to get caught up in the minutae of everyday life and not take the time to look at the big picture OR enjoy the little moments that make up the whole canvas. This weekend, as a family we worked hard and we played together and through it all, I kept thinking over and over how lucky I am. I’d look at my husband and my children and my home and all the things that make up my life and get this overwhelming sense of gratitude. I’m so thankful for all of those that have have fought for my freedom and that have done x,y and z to help make my life as beautiful as it is.
I swear. My cup overfloweth!
I even took a few pictures of some of the things that made me happy this weekend. Like:
A peacock strutting his stuff in one of my favorite neighborhoods.
Jeff and Garrett working together to build the twins a closet that they can actually use.
The twins face when they saw their new closet.
The kids swimming. Need I say more? I love nothing more than hanging out by the pool and watching my kids when they are ENJOYING themselves in the sun (and not fighting).
I’ve always wanted a garden, and this year my husband planted one for me. He started me off with tomatos, zucchini, peppers, basil, rosemary and carrots.
Everything just seems to be in bloom and green and beautiful and I’m so thankful that this weekend I was able to enjoy my family and be outside and think about what’s important.
What about you? What did you do for the holiday weekend?
