Stop To Smell the Weeds

My Saturday started out perfectly!!

It rained,

I slept in (every moms dream),

we had waffles and coffee,

followed by a stroll in the “forest” behind our house.

 It was a great adventures!

Stopping to smell the flowers

I thank the lord every day for this little man, he is my reminder to slow down to enjoy the simple things in life. When your nine weeds are beautiful,you must stop to smell them, and share with your mama….Man he is so sweet!

here mom sniff

“Here mom you have to smell these!”


He literally was trying to see just how high he could get his eyebrows….Pretty impressive!

thumbs up

I’m still worthy of a thumbs up!!! Yay for this mom he hasn’t gone to the dark side, yet.


“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm, and adventures.

There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. “

I may hang this above my desk, there are days I feel like a weed myself.

Let me introduce you all to the newest member of our circus crew, Shadow. Isn’t she adorable!

This Saturday I was reminded by my lovely crew to take time to soak up each and every memory we can make! Take time to smell some weeds, pick some dandelions, and create your adventure in the world.

God Bless,
