Set Me Free

All those weekend plans? Yeah, they were tossed out of the window Saturday morning! Ultimately, due to a mixup in plans, our peeling bodies (yuck), and Gibson's freshly-acquired cold, we decided the beach probably wasn't the best place for us this weekend. Logan decided that it was best we "stay home" as we had a ton of work to do. I hated the thought of this but knew it was the best decision also. It ended up being a blessedly peaceful, absolutely wonderful weekend!

My favorite moments I've tucked away are of sitting on the front porch with Logan as the sun set while Gibson played in the yard; waking up with the sun and sitting on the back porch, sipping coffee underneath an umbrella; taking walks around the block, all four of us; not waking up to an alarm, and being able to scoot up next to Logan for a few moments before the day begins; of cooking and grilling out; dining al fresco.

I barely took time to grab my camera. 

I savored each and every "small" moment, and enjoy being present in my life outside of the camera lens. I allowed myself to be swallowed up in the simple joys of my life that give me the greatest happiness. It was so worth it. 

Maybe not the best for keeping an active blog full of beautiful photos and relevant material, but it was essential for my soul.

 I did take the camera out to document the first bounty of spring radishes from my container garden!

After such a lovely weekend, I feel rejuvenated; ready to take on what this week has in store! My enthusiasm for a rainy, dreary Monday may have quite a lot to do with my going to see Best Coast  with Logan and B. this evening in Richmond. In fact, I'm sure of it!

I hope you all have a cheery Monday, and that your week is sweet; start to finish!
