{This Moment] A Friday Ritual

A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week.
 A simple, special, extraordinary moment. 
A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

The Warmth of Autumn

I recently read the October chapter in Amanda Blake Soule's book, The Rhythm of Family.  She talks about the darkness of the month, and I did sort of a double take because I couldn't instantly understand what she meant.  I get it of course, the day literally gets darker and cooler as a matter of fact.  I just always thought of it as the warmest of all seasons.


Autumn is our favorite season at home.  I vividly remember the smell and the feel of the air from childhood, it truly felt like a soul harvest.


Today, Autumn invites me to create a cozy home: light fires, light candles, carve pumpkins, roast pumpkin seeds, bake, watch browns, reds and yellows fly off trees.



A Rainy Day

You Are My Sunshine: A Scene from Paint with Me! Mommy and Me Art Class

The light opens up and I walk in,
The day invites me to begin,
I ask the day, "How shall I start?"
Says the day, "With a wish upon your heart."

Mother and son.  The real kickback, why I love what I do. 


 The morning light is one of my favorite natural wonders.  This morning it was as if a single angelic ray spotlighted Jackson alone as he said goodbye to our "rainbow breaths".

By the end of the 4-week  
Paint with Me! playgroup,  Jackson has come to delight in putting the scarves back inside the basket from whence they came.
