I hope you had a good weekend. I didn't do a whole lot with mine. Actually on Saturday I was locked up in a dungeon strewn with barbies, lipgloss and brightly colored clothing more commonly known as "the girls room," cleaning and purging all that is not making the trek with us to California. Yeah, it took me at least two hours, with a lunch break in between to get that room completely clean. I know, I know if my children had maintained this room daily, or if I had been more diligent with them then I would not have lost those two hours of my Saturday. But that's OK, some battles are just not worth fighting for everyday. And most of the time I just close their door so I don't have to see the mess...That is until my 3rd child gets lost in the debris again, somehow mistaken for a toy, and I have to put on gloves, socks and shoes to jump in and find him...Ahhh, the joys of parenthood.

Happy Random Monday. Things to be happy about today:

Taking three day weekends in the summer

Jumping into bed with a good book

The order of colors in a Life-Savers candy roll

Window seats

and Pink spring flowers

love + peace

Newborn Peace

I don't know what it is, but newborn babies have a special power. Actually, let me clarify, sleeping newborn babies have a special power. It's like they bring a peace with them that is so tangible you can almost taste it. And even though I may not know what power they hold, one thing I do know is that they are blessed, and they carry with them a presence that could only come from God. Hey, wait a minute, maybe that is it... maybe because newborn babies are so new, so fresh from the Lord, that they still carry His presence and His peace with them, so that when they finally make their appearance on earth, His qualities are still lingering on them like a fragrance no person could ever deny...Sounds possible to me... God, You are so good...

Having said all that about sleepy newborns, I was more than blessed to spend a little time in my newest cousin's precious heavenly aura.

Welcome to the world little Sophia, and thank you for bringing a little bit of heaven with you.

Much love,

Pic of the week-Ain't she CUTE!?!?

When the sun came out to play the other day, I took out my camera and Sid happily obliged. It was a good day.
