Peaceful moment.


Reading should not be presented to children as a chore, a duty. 
It should be offered as a gift.” –Kate DiCamillo


This peaceful moment...
The girls were ready for bed.
But before we could send them off to
bed, we ended the night with a story.
My husband read them both a story and they giggled and wriggled.
We love that they enjoy us reading to them.  
May their love for books continue to grow.

Autumn snapshots.













I took a little break from social media. 
I just wanted to enjoy my family more 
and take in all these beautiful moments I spend with them. 
I'm back and I am ready to share our little adventures with you all.

Our nights are definitely colder.
Hot tea, tutu wearing, princess parties and autumn painting.
Scattered leaves, flowers fading and the sun shines so brightly.
We're all healthy and happy. I couldn't ask for more. 

If you are reading this, I hope that you're enjoying this autumn season. May you continue to be blessed and happy.

Peaceful moment.



This peaceful moment...

November 2015, it snowed the night before. Our oldest daughter went out and collected some snow. We used glitter, food coloring and a few containers. We drank some cocoa and made an indoor snowman. It was a very enjoyable morning.

Our first weekend in October.















Hello October,
You have been missed dearly. 
We welcomed October with cool temps. It is absolutely gorgeous out with all the autumn colors.
 We had a relaxing weekend. I took out a few autumn decor pieces and arranged them around our home. 
I've completely become obsessed with anything that smells like fall. I normally have my wax burners on, but lately I've been lighting a few candles early morning and late in the evening. Since the weather is cooler, I've been leaving the windows open. I normally open them in the afternoon. This past weekend the girls painted their little pumpkins. This is something we enjoy doing every year during the first weekend of October. 
I baked over the weekend. Pumpkin cookies and banana bread. I really need to use up the rest of our bananas. After all the baking was done, I enjoyed a slice of banana bread with a nice cup of coffee. 
We checked out a few books for the girls at the library and had an evening of reading books, board games and later a movie. The movie was mainly for my husband and I. We watched the movie, Me Before You.  I absolutely loved this movie. It was a nice, relaxing evening for both my husband and I.
Our weekend was wonderful. It was full of laughter, hugs, baking, movies, games and much more. I cherish these moments.
