spring break thankful thoughts

























grateful for...
golden hour // little boys in jammies // sammy kisses // the hope of rain // warm weather // bare feet in grass // the smell of spring // a healthy family // fresh fruit and veggies // running in the early morning // friends who email, skype, write, and get-together // work // gluten free goodness //and the unfailing love and faithfulness of Christ

This week has been a good one. Spring break has treated us well, and the weather couldn't have made the past few days more perfect. Picnics and walks to the park, dinner on the deck, running outside in the early morning, an abundance of free time, and the promise of spring. It's been positively sunny, in more ways than one. Stars shone brighter in the cool night, and sun burned warmer in the day. I heard birds and sunk my feet into damp ground and watched the sun sink. We've baked desserts reminiscent of lazy summer days and threw on shorts and t-shirts and opened windows wide. It's been wonderful. Happy Friday! xo

  6. Wow, I am so jealous of your weather! Where I live it never goes below -5, but rains like 9 months of the year with very little sun. I would trade a harsh winter with a big dump of snow for sunshine and t-shirts in March any day!

  7. We did this yesterday evening. This weather is crazy beautiful! And even though we aren't on spring break, we've been outside every afternoon! :)
    Oh, and I would have to agree with Jocee about wanting to know you're family. Wanna just bring everyone to my house? Eighteen kids is no big deal, right? ;)

  12. my favorite thing about your photography is how you capture the beauty in ordinary moments most of us wouldn't think to photograph. you teach me so much about photography every time you post! and this one is no exception :) xo.
    p.s. I really might just have to come steal Sam one day. Just sayin'
