Ordinary days

"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
-Mary Jean Irion

Last weekend was an ordinary weekend, filled with perfectly ordinary activities. An ordinary bath in our ordinary bathroom:

An ordinary swim in an ordinary pool: 

Followed by an ordinary lunch:

And some ordinary child's play in our ordinary living room:

(We were watching Beauty and the Beast/getting ready to put Morgan down for a nap, which explains 1) the darkness and 2) why Shylee's eyes are glued to the TV.)

 There are few things in this life that I treasure more than these ordinary days with my anything-but-ordinary girls.


  1. Ahh how perfect... I just love it.....

  2. I love that post. It really is the ordinary days that make the best memories.


First of all, thanks for reading my blog. Whether you visit regularly or this happens to be your first time here, I'd love to hear from you!
