Simple Things: The Moments We Cherish

Sweet photos from #simplethingssunday. These serve as great reminders to "stop and smell the roses" and enjoy life as it is happening all around you

I knew going in I had a hard week ahead of me.

Instead of my typical stress response of feeling in way over my head, I made a point to concentrate on my breathing, focus on the moments, pick out the things that truly mattered and push the constant barrage of thoughts out of my head.

I made it through the week and these photos show only a glimpse of all the beauty there was to be had when I just took the time to slow down and open my eyes.

There is beauty all around us and if we think too much or move too fast, we’ll miss out on all the good stuff.

I don’t want to miss a thing, not one simple thing.

    Breath, just breath. How many times do I tell myself this in an average week I wonder? A huge well done for taking time to focus on the simple things, and for inspiring me too! What gorgeous snapshots of your week?! That salad is making my mouth water! Thanks you for co-hosting again this week!

      It is a learning process for sure Emily, but even making a conscious effort to notice when I am doing it … and when I am not is helping me be more mindful. I’m so glad you stopped back by, loved your shots this week as well. Your little guys is the cutest.
