What Is Beautiful

  • Waking up at 6:45am and not hearing any kids

  • Phone calls with parents

  • Little girls

  • Blooming spring branches

  • Fresh made beds

  • Piles of folded, clean laundry

  • An empty kitchen sink

  • A sign for an estate sale

  • Hung curtains

  • Lime, green, wool coats

  • Dirty, rosy cheeked children

  • Yellow paint, the color of the laundry room, which I started painting on Saturday, by the way

  • A new, used book

  • Seeing your name on a blog as a winner of a giveaway

  • Homemade bread not made by you

  • Emails from friends

  • A magazine in the mailbox

  • A child reading a book to you

  • An ultra sound picture, only 2 1/2 weeks to go

  • Wedding invitations

  • Daffodils

Here's hoping for a better week,



  1. Yippee! Only 2 1/2 weeks?!?! Any more progress on a name? Have you taught Bryce how to blog so he post pics of you and the babe?

  2. I hope you have a better week too! I agree with everything but the laundry, because then you still have to put it away - which is the hardest part for me! Good luck with the delivery of your very own bouncing baby boy and on deciding his name! maybe he'll come early!

  3. I would add a hot cup of steaming coffee with lots of cream but I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to drink that when you're pregnant. Have a good weekend.
