Where Does the Time Go?

It has been far too long since I’ve languished in the enjoyment of blogging. This month is flying by at the speed of light and I feel like I’ve hardly come up to breathe! Do all school years start out this way going forward and I’m just now on board for such?

In a nutshell all is well but I’m noticing there are a number of areas in my life feeling very disorganized and with colder weather approaching I’m trying very hard not to react so strongly to such. Long ago I diagnosed myself with seasonal mood disorder because when the sun doesn’t come out to play for days and the snow piles up on my mountain well I start getting feelings of stir-crazyness and begin to slowly lose my mind. Now mind you there is no hint of snow yet and Fall is my absolute fave season so why in the world am I jumping the gun here?

Perhaps I owe it to myself to make a mental list of all the good points in life at this very moment so as not to dwell on any such things I deem ‘bad’? My oldest is loving AND thriving in school so far this year and that is a huge plus. My two younger ones drive me absolutely batty with their immense amounts of energy some days but that is simply a reminder that I need to find more sleep and rest so as to battle such. lol! The Man ran off to Germany for a week unexpectedly for work but we managed to throw him a surprise welcome home party equipped with balloons, cupcakes and quietly hidden children! Silly fun seems essential to married with children lifestyles if you ask me. 🙂

So again what is there to complain about really? Date night has been a bit nonexistent due to insane schedules of work/school and no play? I just need to throw something on the calendar pronto and nip that in the butt asap I think. Quiet time has all but removed itself from my life? Again… find the time and make it happen. I guess I’m just not good at such things. So this blog with all its ramblings seems to simply be a reminder to me that I need to make time for what is important and enjoy the little things that keep us all smiling. The goal is set!

Enjoying Simple Treasures

Truth be told I am quite a tree hugger. I just love their form in nature, art and even jewelry. This week has been full of gorgeous sunny days and I’m loving the sway of the trees near the lake when playing with the little ones. I invite all to take a minute and enjoy something simple like a tree, the breeze, a smile, perhaps a photo… your pick!

If you pin then feel free to click the tree to view images I considered ‘A Thing of Beauty’ and go ahead and follow/repin/link etc. 🙂 I’m always happy to do the same.

Have a beautiful day!
