I have been preoccupied and life has been a little hectic lately with work and all of that fun (so not interesting!) but along the way I have taken a few pictures around the house that make me take a step back and realize that life hasn't been half bad lately ..... These pictures show what makes me take a step back and realize how lucky I am! They help me appreciate the beauty in just BEING! I can laugh at my boys and smile and realize that I have everything I need in the world a husband I adore who is my best friend and a pup that just lights up our life. I can take a step outside and see the beautiful blooms and flowers and appreciate the beauty that is all around ..... even in my flat landlocked piece of the country :) Taking these photos makes me appreciate the little bits of heaven that surround our day to day lives.
