On a day like today there is only one thing for which I can be grateful; the freedom of my children. I am grateful for the flag that represents it, and the people who fight to keep it. For its Continue reading Freedom: My Gratitude Photo Journal
This week I captured more simple moments than I allow space to share them- now that’s a good week 🙂 Here are a few of them: We were sitting on the front porch waiting for Kris to get home from Continue reading Smooches and Swimming: Simple Things Sunday
I have now experienced watching my children play together. Not just acknowledge each other, but build forts and play store and choose each other at the playground. So this week I am grateful for: Conversations by the water, and teamwork Continue reading 2X2: My Gratitude Photo Journal
Last week, Sydney came downstairs and said “mommy, I want a new dress”. She is only 2.5 and had never asked us for anything before. So that afternoon she and I went shopping. It was one of the most wonderful Continue reading Sydney’s New Dress: Simple Things Sunday
It is not that we strawberry pick lots of times each season, or even every year, it is just that this year we could. Sydney was old enough to walk and help us pick, and Owen had fun pretending the Continue reading Strawberry Fields: My Gratitude Photo Journal
I have watched Kris’s transformation as a parent. I do not think he will mind me saying that he had no idea how his life was going to change once we had a child. In fact, I do not think Continue reading Choosing Connection: My Gratitude Photo Journal.

As I was getting today’s post ready I noticed that all but one of the images are of Sydney. I felt bad- like I had slighted my other child or something. It did not last long though because I realized Continue reading Quiet Moments: Simple Things Sunday
I love participating in Simple Things Sunday because it reminds me to pay attention during the week; to appreciate ordinary moments. Most of these moments will not be recalled even when they are photographed. Somehow though, if I inhale them Continue reading Inhaling The Ordinary Moments: Simple Things Sunday
The calendar reflected spring some time ago, but it has only been in this last week that it really feels so. I love New England because of the dramatic seasons, and so this week I am grateful for taking Continue reading Winter’s Adieu: My Gratitude Photo Journal
It really is the simple things… Like imagining two worlds colliding, and basking in the scents of spring. Like rolling out the lazy, hazy days a bit early, and enjoying a sugary treat!
We have had rain. For too many days in row. We have spent time with friends at indoor play spaces and time alone at home. And while those indoor “playgrounds” can really save the day, they are also a Continue reading Camping in the Rain: My Gratitude Photo Journal
The grass seems so much greener after a winter away… And it feels softer than we remember it. The scenery brightens with the contrast of city and nature. Thank you for spending some time with Our Muddy Continue reading Green: Leap into Spring Photo Challenge
This photo was taken at night. Like 10:00 PM at night. There was a time when both my husband Kris and I would have been frustrated to have either of the kids up with us that late. But with a Continue reading Happiness: Photo Challenge
In the midst of Central Park we experienced a few quiet and simple moments. I love the reminder on Sydney’s shirt of the Hot Chocolate she had enjoyed earlier, and how contemplative Owen was as he gazed at The City’s Continue reading Hot Chocolate and a Skyline: Simple Things Sunday
