the best ever simple moments...

Last weekend flew by so fast and before

I knew it my kids had left to go back

home, but the short time we spent

together was so very special to my heart.

Simple moments are the best:

hanging out around the table

eating way too many oatmeal

chocolate chip cookies - thanks

to my fabulous daughter in law,


Peeking in and seeing my daughter

sleeping in her bed all snuggled up

and cozy - it never gets old looking

at your precious babies sleeping...

Sitting outside in the 80 degree weather

(Thanksgiving in So Cal)  sipping cocktails

and waiting for our Thanksgiving meal to cook.

Walking thru the door from work the day

before Thanksgiving and to have Steff

greet me with a big smile and her arms out

both of us asking each other if we looked 

different after 2 1/2 months apart.....haha...

heart melting moment...

And a few hours later to hear a knock on our door

and see two beautiful faces -  my son Matt and his wife, Heather -

well my heart was singing, that is for sure.

Chatting with Heather while doing the dishes together, 

and she thanked me for never making her feel like she

was taking my son away when they got married (like

some moms do, I have heard...) That made my heart soar!

Going to my favorite cafe for breakfast with my kids

and just enjoying chatting with each other

Having a late night dinner with Alex and

Matt and Heather - there is always alot of laughter

and eye rolling (especially around Alex....) haha...

To be perfectly honest all we did was eat, sit around

whether it was at home, a cafe or a restaurant and

hung out with each other - talking, laughing, just being..

That was the best ever!

What a perfect Thanksgiving! So very much to be grateful for. :) There's so much joy in 'ordinary' moments that they're anything but ordinary..

I loved this post. You did such a wonderful job capturing the closeness you all feel. And how wonderful it is that you have such a nice daughter-in-law. That's a real blessing!
