Right Now I ...

 ... am clinging to these last 17 days of summer before school routines start again.

... know that our third little girl will do great in Kindergarten this year.

... loved watching this video by Danny Gregory, The Art of Breakfast. Madelyn, Sophia and I watched it in my bed listening to a thunderstorm and waiting for Daddy to come home.

... bought a tiny watercolor set and stashed it in a drawer next to my bed. I hope it doesn't get dusty like all the empty journals I have yet to begin.

... feel like I need a unplugged weekend. Computer time seems to devour hours that could be spent much more creatively. 

... am looking forward to Autumn weather. I can smell my pumpkin cappuccino already!

... am reading this and this and just finished reading this aloud with Madelyn.

... entered Evangeline in a weekly photo contest. Today she turned 5 months!! She has edged into the top #100 thanks to all my family and friends who voted for her and sent the word out through social media! Here is the latest link to vote for her sweet baby face!

A quote for your weekend: 

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.”
- Thich Nhat Hanh 


  1. all the best on holding on to those days left of summer.

  2. She is so cute! A kindergartner! Such a big deal!

  3. Oh...somehow the picture of your first 5 girls didn't appear until after I commented. So gorgeous. They are getting so tall!
