Play Day

We took a much needed play day yesterday

We live in an extraordinary beautiful party of the world and too often we stay at home to work at the endless chores and responsibilities

About a 40 minute drive from home we had a picnic lunch

It’s The Little Things Mean The Most

             In No Particular Order – JOY

                          

                                                                 our son’s thoughtfulness      

my husband made us fresh bread         

our son’s dragon drawing from kindergarten hangs on the wall

  walking our nature trail with my family                                                                        

                              critter prints

        winter pleasure

              

               morning pleasures: colors, aromas, tastes

My Gratitude Jar:

if we don’t recognize & appreciate our blessings then we might as well not have them – what do you think about appreciating the little joy’s in life?
