And to think a simple charm inspired all this...

As I had posted earlier, this piece was inspired by a one dollar charm I had bought Alexa at Jamie's Flea Market. I would take a picture and show it to you, however, she wears it all the time! She takes it off when it is time for bed, but by then, I have no more good lighting...


I wanted this collage to be a bit whimsical but to still send an important message; the simple things in life are what's really important: cuddles on the couch on a cold rainy day, a good family meal, quiet time early in the morning, and whatever other simple things that bring you joy.
This was a very busy week for me, a lot of work, a lot of activities, and just a lot of running. It was nice to finish this and be reminded that it's okay if the dishes don't get finished, that it's okay if I get a little bit behind on the laundry. Although - the laundry I really do need to catch up on! The point is, what is important; those simple moments in life that we only get one chance at...
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and enjoys all of those simple things that our children get so much pleasure from. Who knows - maybe that is the secret to all of the never ending energy they seem to have!
