I was going through my photos and realized I never posted these. They’re from the beginning of June- just a random Summer’s day hanging out in the backyard as a family. Lots of laughter and silliness, some extra big smiles from miss Sophie, and running through the sprinklers for mister Sam. Nothing special, but they make me smile.
I think that’s kind of how life is, isn’t it? The moments that are seemingly “nothing special” end up being the most treasured and special ones, after all. I know I am so guilty of trying to create “perfect” moments, and when I fail (in my mind), I get easily frustrated and upset. I’m trying really really hard to change this about myself, and see the perfection in the imperfections. To see the loveliness in the everyday.
Sometimes it’s just nice to be. No pressure, no expectations. That’s what I’m striving for: contentedness, joy and happiness in just being.
It helps that I have these extra special people to “just be” with every single day of my life. Gosh, I’m a lucky one.
