Mom-Lovin Hop No. 19

So glad you are back with us this week to link up! We had a crazy week in our house with sleepless nights and sickness and teething pain, but we have also taken time to see the beauty around us, to see little joys and the small things. Im reading ((slowly)) One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp ((check out her blog here)) and its really encouraging me to live in the moment and not let those little moments, tiny joys pass us by. Like watching Hazel run the sand through her fingers at the beach, the wonder in her eyes as she scooped up more and more. I don't notice these things enough. Soon our time with our children as babies will be slipping through our fingers just like that sand. I hope you find time to find those small simple joys today. 

Thanks again for joining with us today. We are so happy you are here! 

Today we have a special Guest Host, Amy from Keeping Up with the Smiths

Amy blogs about her life as wife to Luke and stay at home mom to their super cute little blondie Cash. I love Amy's "Falling into Autumn Bucket List" Super cute!!

  1. I totally agree - we need to absorb all those small moments. In our little ones eyes they're actually moments that are the size of giants....have to put ourselves in their shoes sometimes. Funny how these little tots make us appreciate everything so.much.more!

    As usual, thanks for hosting!
