“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
― Marcus Aurelius

Where has the Summer gone? It’s gone by so fast! How has it been for you? I have one week left before my kids get back to their preschool schedule, so this week we are on our family vacation.

One of my intentions this summer was to take it easy and spend more time with my kids, but I have to admit I wasn’t as present as I would have liked. I felt a bit scattered trying to do a bit too much with work, the house, the kids and trying to juggle everything. My life was like a giant “to do” list rather than a just be list. So this week I’m trying to unplug a bit and appreciate the beauty of life.
This photo of my daughter expressing pure joy, dancing on the tarmac at sunset as we finally landed in Hawaii after a day long trip reminded me to cherish these moments in time. I hope whatever you are preparing for this week whether it’s the rush of back to school or you have more summer left to enjoy that you take time to pause and dwell on the beauty of life. What moments did you appreciate this summer?

  1. I hear ya, I felt like I worked a lot through the summer and didn’t spend as much time as I wanted to with my DD. But we did have some moments like at the beach together and visiting friends. Cute picture of your daughter with the plane!

    • Thanks. I ‘m glad you had some special moments I know sometimes we get so busy we forget to take a moment and enjoy the simple things. Hope your having a good week.
