Being present...

That is just how things have been for us the past month.

Focusing more on us.  Individually and as a family.

Just letting the days happen.
No pressure, no expectations.
Disconnecting from the world most days.

It was wonderful beyond words.
A sense of peace in some ways, that we all needed around here.

Hoping that this new "normal" will stick around here in some shape or form.
Crossing my fingers.




  1. I know PRECISELY what you mean. But selfishly, I'm glad you're back to this space.

  2. Hi Kar, it's nice to "see" you. Those peaceful days sound wonderful and summer is the perfect time for that. We are starting school next week, so our pace has picked up a bit. Seems like once school starts there are always more activities to run to here and there. Wishing you a great week. Heather

  3. Even though I was away too, I still missed you. Taking that time is absolutely necessary though. Some things are done without apology. That stash of fabric makes me wonder. *smile* Welcome back my friend. :-D

  4. Sounds like a perfectly perfect way to live life!

  5. Well I was wondering where you've been, now I know. I adore this post and your words. Yay you!
