Living Busy, Living Fully

There is no denying or "prettying up" the fact that I've been busier than I'd like over the past couple months. I've been up to all sorts of projects, some more desired and heartfelt than others, but my days and minutes have certainly been full.

Without as much time to consider life and all it's pleasures, I've found that I've had to be more concious about living in the moment and being grateful for every minute, even if they aren't all filled up in quite the way I'd like.

Through the bustle, our family has found some positively delicious ways to love one another and spend time together as we work through this transition period in our lives. I want to share with you some of our lovely joys of late so that you too can walk this journey of gratitude with me for all the moments that simply are.

Beach time at the ocean...



 The joy of growing baby bumps (this is me at 20 weeks with Baby #4)...
 Time at the lake...
 THIS perfect sunset...
 Family breakfasts at camp, still in our jammies and huddled near the fire on mornings still crisp...
 Fishing, no matter the catch...
 Silly s'more faces around the campfire...
 Family board games to settle down at the end of a big day...
 Family trips to an amusement park...


...and so many more moments to cherish when my camera simply wasn't handy.

I'm feeling so blessed, perhaps more so because our schedules are so demanding right now, that we can still make time to be together and enjoy it with full hearts.

What are you doing with your family lately?
