Daily Reads


Hey friends, I missed you this morning!
I wasn't feeling super inspired - not bad, but I just didn't have much to say. Do you ever feel that way? 
In the past I would have forced it and posted something anyway. But today I decided not to do that. 
Instead I played with Michael a little more. I talked to my mom a little longer. 
I watched Michael and Ella play the games they play. 
I sipped my coffee and just enjoyed the morning without thinking about anything else.

It turned out to be a great decision. Michael and I had an especially good day together, I think, because I wasn't putting any pressure on myself. (It didn't hurt that he was finally caught up on sleep after the weekend, either.) I thought I was doing a pretty good job of enjoying the little things in life, but after today it's obvious to me that there's room for improvement.

So, I might be doing that a little more often - 
playing hooky to enjoy the little things, and treasuring up all the happiness in my heart.

WIshing you a week of happiness, friends! xoxo 
(More little things that make me happy here.)

  6. It's so important to let ourselves sit back (with a cup of coffee :) and really savor the sweet moments in life. One of my favorite things is just sitting in the garden watching my baby explore the grass, dig her tiny fingers into the dirt, and pull leaves off the trees. Thanks so much for linking up with Monday Mom Musings, Christie.
