random...gotta love sundays

i am sitting here alone in a very quiet house...all 5 of my other sidekicks have gone to bed!

i just wanted to post how much i love my house they are pretty care free and lax! i feel blessed that i can curl up on my couch looking out our front window and finish reading an amazing, suspenseful, brilliantly written book without much interruption! i find myself counting my blessings over and over again because the life i have now is so different from the one i had only a few years ago. i have learned how quickly life can change....for the better or for the worse , so i try really hard to just enjoy the moment knowing they pass as quickly as they entered into our lives. i find myself trying to teach my kids this...but I JUST realized it at 30+ years of age so how can i expect them to get it at their young, innocent ages??

i started another painting that was inspired by the friday afternoon dates i share with my youngest at starbucks!! she is such a firecracker and light in my life! God, I love this little daughter! she was next to me as i began this painting, always telling me how much she loves my paintings and truly being my biggest fan! (it's the best!!! : ) but even better was how she grabbed some papers and crayons and scissors and started to make her own little was so fun to share that time with her. this time of creating and just being together! i love how i feel that we inspire one another...i wish i could bottle it up but i am wise enough to know it simply comes in moments and has to be enjoyed before it disappears!

so i guess what i am getting at after all this mumbo jumbo is to very simply...DRINK UP THESE MOMENTS...LIFE CHAN CHANGE IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE!!


  1. I know exactly what you mean. I am always looking ahead hoping these happy times never end, but know from experience that something is lurking around the corner. Maybe nothing is around the corner though and then I waste that wonderful time wondering. I need to just enjoy.

  2. You are so right!!! Your special time sounds fabulous. Bella & I are starting to stamp together and she cracks me up too.

  3. Oohh its posts like these that give me hope! As a mother of 1 yr old and 3 yr old, I rarely have a quiet day!! Its nice to know that mothers have quiet time eventually. I love that you can spend special time creating with you daughter. I look forward to being able to do that too! Kaili xx

  4. K -- how your little one tells you how much she loves your work. I love it. That lifts me up with memories.

    Your Sunday nights sound like my early weekend mornings when everyone else is asleep.

    Beautiful post.

    Love Renee xoxoxo

  5. Wonderful post, you are so right , its the little things that mean so much xx

  6. I love this post! I know what you mean too my 5 year old daughter is my biggest fan and I just love spending time with her and my son, they are both so creative and always making things and drawing, I just love their spirit!
    I'm sure if it could be bottled, it would cost a fortune ;)
