Peaceful moment.


This peaceful moment...
took place in April, 2015.
My oldest daughter and I took a few flowers from the garden and created 
nature sun catchers. This was such a fun project.

If you would love to make your own follow this link 

Enjoy!


Each Thursday I will be posting a peaceful moment. 
I would love to know what your peaceful moment has been during the week or a peaceful memory from the past. :)

Let Go. -Crumble it up and toss it out!



Let go of...Negative thoughts. - In the morning right after you wake tell yourself these 3 things:
1. I am thankful.
2. I am able
3. I will do my absolute best!

Let go of...People bringing you down! There is absolutely no reason to have these people in your life. Are you trying to do better? If the answer is yes, let them go!

Let go of...Always saying YES. I always thought I needed to please every single person who entered my life and so I was constantly saying yes. - I managed to stop this and it feels great. Saying no is okay to do and if the person truly understands where you are coming from it shouldn't bother them one bit.

Let go of...The past. This is something I struggle with. - I'm doing much better now, but truthfully I find myself slipping at times. (We all do and that is what makes us human). But honestly we must learn to let go of past hurts. Once we learn to let go we can live a much happier life.

Let go of...Gossip. Just say no to gossip! I mean we are adults and who cares what the next person did, or didn't do. - I'm tired of gossip and if you're reading this I'm sure you are as well. Let us just come together and be mature about situations.

Let go of...Judging. - Who are we to judge people? Not giving someone a chance because you rather judge them before even knowing them is plain silly.

Let go of...Selfishness. Lend a helping hand, be a shoulder to lean on, or be that person who comforts someone who just really needs those healing words.

Let go of...Comparing.  We don't need to compare ourselves to the next person. I see so many moms comparing and pointing fingers. It's not about who is a better mom. Just parent your children and let the next mom do the same for her children. If you know that you are doing an awesome job at being a mom, continue doing an awesome job. - Who cares what the next person has to say.


Let go of...Hate. Just stop! Let us remember to just love. Spread love not hate.

I hope after reading this you find peace. Maybe you're holding on to a few things and I hope just maybe through this post I can inspire some of you to let go of those things. I hope you all have a beautiful day!

Peaceful moment. (A day late)


This peaceful moment...
There was a slight breeze in the air.
 And the sky was beautiful...
I sat in my front porch admiring our bloomed flowers.

Each Thursday I'll be posting a peaceful moment that took place. 
This peaceful moment is coming to you all a day late. This week has been a busy one! What was your peaceful moment for the week?

Making shakers. - A fun DIY for little ones.




I think I've mentioned before how much we love to dance. My littlest one will be two this year and her big sister turned five in April. - They absolutely love to boogie! We normally play music and just enjoy the moment. My two year old loves to shake and rattle things.  We're  always coming up with new ways to create shakers. This time around, we used empty spice containers. (Plastic ones). So if you have some empty ones around your home create some shakers for your little ones. It is super easy and fun for all.







What you will need:
Empty spice containers
beans
beads
And anything fun you want to add into your shaker
Markers (permanent) works best 

All you need to do:
Take each container and decorate it. - Get creative and have fun with it.
Next just take your beans, beads and what ever else you chose to put into your containers and add them in. Make sure to leave some room. - So don't fill it all the way up. Once you're all done your kiddos can have fun and dance around with them. 

Have fun!

Peaceful moment.


This peaceful moment...

It was a quiet Sunday.
I took a tulip from my garden earlier in the week.
This pink tulip sat on our kitchen windowsill...
I believe it was an overcast day.
It was nice to have just a little pop of color.

                                              What was your peaceful moment for this week?

Each Thursday, I'll be posting a photo taken during a peaceful moment.

Peaceful moment.


This peaceful moment...

March, 2015...
We arrived at our local library.
My oldest daughter was happy to see the magic show.
They had birds, bunnies and a few other things for the kids to enjoy.

This month: Snapshots


Soft yellow. 


Morning coffee.


Coin sorting with my oldest.


Bench building.


Ah, spring. :)


Magnets and chalk.


Tiny green house. 


This month has treated us well.
It wasn't as busy compared to the previous month. 
We've managed to get a few projects done. We are still in the process of working on our front porch. 
Soon I'll add some patio lights on the back porch. I'm looking forward to spending more time outdoors and us firing up the grill.- I must admit this is one of my favorite times. 

How about you? How has this month treated you? 

Until next time...
I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful spring weather.
