It's the little things...

Sometimes we all need a reminder that the little things in life are the most important. Take a step back and look at the big picture. Today, I will not worry about the dirty dishes in the sink. Today, I will play. Today, I’m not going to get stressed over the “what if” that may or may not happen in my future. Today, I will be in the moment. I will enjoy the simple things that are right under my nose. Smell the roses. Take a walk and look at the world in front of you. Take it all in. Hug someone. Tell a friend they are special to you. Put your feet up and take a deep breath. Watch the sun set. Listen. Listen to your world, to your family, to your heart.

What will you do today?

Hey sweets, I was going to stop by and tell you I talked about you and those amazing popsicles! Thanks again for the awesome idea, I love it and you're always giving me such great tips!

Love that saying, my mom has a huge rose garden and she has a thing that looks very much like that hanging in there :)

That's the joy of being a nanny...the kids force me to do just this.

I am almost a little too good at not doing what I should!

I'm going to take a walk and hopefully take a couple pictures of the deer down near the river at Valley Forge National Park.
