Her days of sweet nothing important

This happens every summer.  It's what I crave all year long and wait patiently through fall, winter and spring to finally come.  
The sweet days of summer.
And nothingness.
The tv gets turned off.
No video games.
The phone doesn't ring.
No appointments or doctor's visits.
And she learns to occupy her day with a lot of nothing important.  
Like discovering God's miracles in flowers.  
And playing with toys she hasn't seen since last summer.  
Digging in a wheel barrow of dirt on tippy toes.  
A swing.
Counting leaves.
And essentially a whole lot of sweet nothing important. 
And I am so grateful that I get to see how horribly important it all really is.  


  1. Our some of exploration has been ruined by the monsoon rains! Not normal for Atlanta, but it has driven the children inside. We have been doing a done of crafts and science experiments. Lovely photos of mimi!

  2. Oh, my goodness those are the prettiest swing shots!

  3. So very important............and she is So very adorable! Man that girl is C. U. T. E. :) Enjoy your summer:)

  4. Ahhh... now I want some time at the little cabin in the woods.. it looks wonderful.. and Mimi is precious! She is becoming quite the young lady!

  5. Wow! She's truly gorgeous! Her warmth glows in your pictures. Really beautiful!!

  6. She is so, so cute and looks so "at peace" in her world. I guess I notice that b/c of where we are in our journey, which is watching our girl adjust to her new life and praying for the day she feels "at peace" in our world. jealous! Job well done.

    1. She'll get there too, Maureen. Your new normal of so NEW. It will come with time and soon there will be a day you couldn't remember how at peace it all feels!

  7. Brilliant - and great photography too!

    hugs - aus and co.
