unexpected surprises

this week has been full of some unexpected surprises and encouraging moments that have left my heart full.

like taking a some quick photos after a warm afternoon walk at the park.
i had been wanting to shoot some outside photos with the kids for awhile,
and instead of trying to "schedule" time with clothes,
accessories and props like i had been wanting to do
(probably from seeing too many photo blogs and pinterest ideas),
things fell together on their own.
to me the moments i captured are perfect -
even though they are not the "perfection" i was planning in my mind.
i think i am finally learning the joy of contentment,
and letting go of comparison and expectations that often leave me feeling less than happy.
what a waste of my time.

here are a couple of the pictures i shot on monday afternoon.
they are like sunshine to me.

wishing you a happy weekend!


  1. Good for you! I really loved what you said about letting go of comparisons. I think we all need to work on that. I know I do! Your kids are so darling. I just love that huge flower headband!

  2. It was so nice to see you today :) Wish my boys weren't sick so we could do a play date. Miss Julia is such a cutie! I love the quilt that her monthly pictures are taken on!


thanks for leaving a message. it's always nice to hear from you!
