Daily Reads


Good morning, friends! 
I've realized that I tend to take pictures when I'm feeling especially happy and grateful, 
so my instagram has become a catalogue of all the little blessings that bring me joy every day. It overwhelms me sometimes when I look back and see how richly God blesses me in ways both big and small. My cup overflows! 
Here are some of those things that have been filling my heart with joy.

a little bit of sublime on a mundane commute.

an afternoon at the waterpark with friends and my little water baby.

flowers from my loves.

a late-night trip to target. all by myself. oh, the peace!

watching this guy learn. it's just amazing.

a nap with my pup / sparkling pool on a hot afternoon / the world's best ice cream

Wishing you a joyful weekend, lovelies! xoxo

  1. I've been thinking a lot of the same things lately! I just wrote this post yesterday: http://www.thepropulsionsystem.com/2012/08/thankful-on-thursday.html

    Thanks for sharing your joy. :)

  2. That flower photo is amazing! Great shot! And shopping alone is probably the best :)

  3. Target is so, so awesome for late night mama outings. Happy Friday!

  4. Target by yourself can be dangerous, no?! You and your little water baby are adorable :)

  5. Hi there! I'm stopping by from LifeRearranged. Your first picture is AMAZING and Target is my BEST friend and worst enemy all wrapped into one. I love that store but it certainly can be dangerous. Especially when alone and you actually have the time to look at everything. Hope you have a good weekend!

  6. oh how He blesses!!!! thanks for sharing, friend :)
