The good stuff

{A quick little Valentine shoot for my nephew - props created by his mom}

That's Roman pulling Rapunzel's hair and Lily helping the Little Red Hen bake bread.

Another post (another week?) without a clear theme.
I enjoy the random bits of life.
It's such a tiny portion,
and it's always (mostly) the good things that make it to the blog.
I try to make room for the good things.
Because everyone knows life has bad stuff too.
In fact, the past two scattered blog posts are probably evidence that my
mind is on heavy life things.
So sometimes it's nice to come here and SEE,
LOOK! there is still so much good.
So much good.
amidst the blahhh.
There is so much to be grateful for.

i giggled that you got boots. i now want to see you in them =)

i completely agree about the blog happiness. i blog for me and only me. it's all a bonus when people want to be involved. There are so many tough things in life i LOVE having somewhere to go that is full of happy memories and good times. it's my little ray of light when my days get dark.

Oh nice boots! So nice of Dave!!! I have a pair from JCrew (on sale of course) and they are the best for rain and snow! Obviously you know that...haha

Cute pictures! I love reading your blog, I think it's always so positive. And I love random pictures, that's what life is. Whose life is totally structured and organized? Certainly not mine!

How does your husband do sooo good with gifts? Do you give him a list of things you want or he is the most attentive person of all time? I don't get it. But, I think I need to give Devin a list of possible gifts starting ASAP.

And how do you have the coolest places to take kids? A fun center with Rapunzel's hair to yank on?? I love it.

You amaze me Tara.

Cute boots! And I totally agree, it is nice to focus on the good on our blogs, it helps me keep perspective on the fun things in my life so that the not fun things dont weigh me down! I hope these "heavy" things on your mind pass soon :)
