In our lives, we will always find unexpected treasures to carry with us always.
Some of those treasures are small and we toss them without care into our bag of life. Other treasures are fine and beautiful and we tuck them away in our pockets ever so carefully so that we can quickly find them when we need to cherish them once again.
However, all of our treasures are important and give our lives wonder and meaning.
Yesterday morning, I pulled out my crousant WITH BUTTER (yummy) from the bag and I found a Crabby crousant with a tail! I love little surprises.
Pieces of nature that we found on a walk and brought home with us to keep.
A view of one of the paved paths that we walk on almost daily. Under the big tree is a bench to sit on and at the top of the path it turns to join a bigger road from which I took this photo. On this path our family finds joy in life with each step.
I let the kids run in the field to get some of their pent up energy out. My children have the space and freedom here that are so important for growing bodies and minds.
The children ran and skipped the entire walk only stopping to watch a bug or flower that would capture their interest for a magical moment.
I think the walk backfired on Vilay and I since the kids were even more silly and playful when we got home. Tucking two giggling girls into bed was no easy task. I had to wrestle them for my good night kisses! I love my four children and my husband. I am blessed to have my family and I am forever thankful for their love.
Yesterday was my three year blog anniversary. I cannot believe I have been blogging that long. Looking back on the first month of this blogs life, I realize that my writing style and voice have changed drastically. Now, I tell my stories through my love of photography more than my love of words even if I still love words.
I think my blog grows and changes with me, reflecting different periods in my life. This blog has become an unexpected treasure of memories and thoughts that I gently carry in my pockets taking out when I need to cherish them again.
