At This Moment {in photos}

There's so much awe inspiring beauty in every  day, in every  moment, we only have to take the time to soak it all in. We move at such a fast pace every day, that our world just rushes by in one giant, jumbled blur.

This is what happens when you take the time to freeze all the little moments. Every second skids to a halt. My favorite tool- my camera. My camera captures all the ordinary little moments that when all put together, make up my life. 

I see moments of little feet, little hands, my little reader, good books. Moments of quiet reflection and stolen serenity. I see my life, my people and a grateful heart.

The Blue Chair

I mentioned Monday that I had a slight chair addiction, and Lord knows that I try to pass them by when I spot them. They sit innocently enough in antique stores and flea market stalls and I swear they give me a come-hither glance. I declare, I try my best to whisk right by them but alas find myself circling around again to get one more glance, putting out my hand this time to caress the fabric and wiggle the chair checking it's frame, sniffing to make sure there are no foul odors and finally allowing myself to sit. That's it, the sit  seals the deal.

I begin trying to figure out where in the world will I put this little dream of a chair? I'll figure that out later I tell myself. I can't possibly pass up a chair of this age, in this condition, and at this price. 

I loosen the tag upon the chair and clutch it in my palm, no one's getting my chair before I can get up to the cashier and seal this little deal. 

Anyone else a little overzealous at the flea market? Are you a chair hoarder collector like me? A different passion possibly? I promise, pinky promise, this is a no judgement zone, unload your burdens people.......... what can you not pass up?

Around The House {summer edition}

It's been quite a while since I've posted any house photos. I haven't tackled many projects lately, and our home has felt very comfortable and cozy, not all that pinterest-y. But, you know what, it's that comfortable and cozy that makes our home, our home, so welcome.........

Our homes don't have to be ever-changing or spectacular. Our homes should be a reflection of the love shared by the folks that live within it's walls. 

Don't judge, I have a slight chair addiction. My kids think I'm nuts! It's a gathering room I say, the more chairs the merrier!

Most importantly, your home should be a reflection of you,  your own individual personality. A living room filled to the brim with seating, yes please. Quilts and blankies all around for cuddling, most definitely. 

My home is just like me, a little quirky and a whole bunch of wonky! It makes me smile. Pictures next week of the change-up in the girls' room, a little sultry and a lot vintage. Thanks for dropping by friends!
