"We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are."

Marjorie Pay Hinckley


maybe my most favorite moment of the entire weekend...

there is nothing cuter than a 3 year old playing soccer.
...especially when there are 8 of them on the field all running in opposite directions.
...especially when one of them (namely: Ty) runs off the field 10 minutes into playing and says, "I'm tired."
...especially when their socks are so big they cover their entire leg.
...especially when asked what their favorite part of the game was - answer: "The tunnel was awesome!"
I'm so glad I have eight more weeks of this to look forward to.



the girly-ness of these... the smell of this...
the taste of this...

the fun of this...
the cleaning power of this...
(because my day is not complete unless I've cleaned something, right?)

Happy Friday!


you know who you are...

Happy Valentine's Day!
