A Pocketful of Moments 9.16.11

After a rough start this week, I am happy to say things have settled and we were able to just "be" for a few days. A good mantra for always-- "remember joy"...

Welcoming Monica's Joy Pockets with a little extra vim and vigor, she will now be hosting these at her other blog Holistic Mama :).

Underwater disposable cameras and next day processing

M. eating, laughing, sparkling

getting random hugs from E.
and hearing "have I told you I love you today Mom?"

Sigur Ros, i can't get enough

a new meme to look forward to

girl's night tonight!!

and This Moment with Amanda

treating myself to a bag from Jeanne Oliver

Looking forward to your moments and joy pockets today...

much love and happiness to you!!
xx oo

  2. as always, i love your friday post! i got your rat comment the other day and took the kids straight to the store to get rat #2 after school. they were thrilled! they wanted to know who said we should have two and i said that it was my friend MJ and they are ALL ABOUT YOU! now i’m praying that they’re both girls. do yours wrestle a lot?
