Small Graces

A weekly reflection inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces".
Sometimes they slip by without notice Sometimes they're very hard to see Other times it's all so clear When they're happening to me

1- Cheetah ears and blue eyes. 

2 - Hip Hoppers and the prettiest little ballerina. Plus Mini Man's tough/cool face - this kid is a hoot 😂

3 - Ninja climbing skills.

4 - Nutella grins. 

5 - Sour cherries and plenty of pitting help. 

6 - Sweet corn with the most amazing seasoning. Seriously, if you live by a Trader Joe's you have to try it. 

8 - Local waterfalls. 

9 - Huge frogs and other nature wonders like crayfish, minnows, dragonflies, and natural berries. All which left Mini Man in awe, "Mommy, nature is so amazing!"

10 - Fourth of July decorations. Well, really just any decorations - we like flair in this house. 

What I've Been Wearing

It's been awhile since I've written a post about what I've been wearing. Truthfully, it's because Sunday has become the only day I really get 'dressed'. Of course, I put on clothes the other days, but with it being summer I frequently skip the make-up and my hair is almost always in a simple dutch braid. If we aren't swimming in the afternoons we are usually at park or going on a nature hike. Getting all gussied up just doesn't seem worth the effort right now. I actually feel a bit sorry for some my clothes; for the last several weeks I've just been rotating through a few outfits. I have some fun summer dresses that are very neglected.  Do you get 'dressed' during the summer, or does fashion get forgetten in the flurry of warm weather activities.
