Ordinary

We've had a week that has tested our hearts and minds.  Coming into the weekend needing rest and time together at home.  Home base.  Nothing fancy.  Just the way we like it.
Alice is in love with her swing and loves to feel the wind on her face.  My girl is a tangible picture of joy in the midst of challenge.  Her sweetness and patience continues to amaze us.
And this one, Miss Rose, I tuck her in at night and wonder how did you get this big?  Time is passing too quickly for my heart. 
In her world, baby Lynn, the perfect accessories are a fluffy skirt and some mud.
Rock on, baby girl.
In their world, a messy kitchen means mama chose them over cleaning, pushing against any trace of the grain inside that says it needs to be perfect.

Slipping away from an ordinary day to celebrate friends choosing to love forever.  Give me a little black dress, some GaGa, and the hubby...and you've got yourself a dreamy night out.
And maybe a few cupcakes too.


Hanging lights and blooming flowers let them know summer nights are coming.

A celebration to come...sweet friends asking our girls to be in their wedding on the beach this summer, complete with sand toys, ocean-blue slushies, and roses.

Turning an ordinary cookie into something simply divine.  Because my girls think sprinkles and peanut butter are the jam.  
The morning starts with sounds that fill the house and the yard because they are making memories and letting their imaginations take the lead.  And a few feet away are darkened rooms with cold sheets, awaiting little sand dusted bodies for afternoon naps.  Then one by one, the house begins to stir once again and the night is ahead of us.  Our time together lately has been simple and sweet.  
Anything but ordinary.
