taking a moment to capture contentment and joy in every day life
This past weekend we had absolutely beautiful weather so we headed west, to the coast. With clear, blue, sunny skies, our day at the beach was perfect and a rare treat.
And this time of year is my favorite time of year for my garden. I love to go out several times a day and see what I might find to photograph.
It's too cold to swim, but we had fun jumping the waves, building sand castles, going for walks, playing guitar and singing.
Meanwhile, back in my garden....I was so happy to spot this guy again. I'm sure this is one of the ones we hatched earlier this summer and we've seen him several times but always at different stages in his growth.
I'm also very happy to be teaming up with Yvonne from Our Little Corner of the World to host a new photography link-up. Each week we'll announce a theme and you have all week to hunt for and take photos that fit the theme. You can read more about it HERE. Our theme for this week is green and we'd love to have you join us next Tuesday!
And now back at the beach....I tried to recreate a crab out of parts I found laying around. When I showed my kids, they promptly stomped on it.
I can hardly believe it, but it's true....I have a 2nd grader and a 3rd grader this year. We are back at school and so far all is going well. Of course, it's only been 2 days. If only I could bottle some of this creative energy and eagerness to learn.
