We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  ~Thornton Wilder

This week's treasures include:
-- Gym membership for the whole family turned out to be cheaper than bootcamp for just me. Here, Avi and I taking a break from swimming for a snack. 
 -- His excitement in seeing the deer we share our neighborhood with.
 -- This mess. Yep, that's my calculator on the laptop that I was using to pay bills and my lunch on the ironing board. So thankful that my wife tolerates this space that I use to create!
-- After an immunization, everyone deserves to have whatever they want for lunch: french toast with strawberries. 
 -- This beautiful table (my great great grandmother's table) and the families we joined around it. 
 -- Avi and Owen... fast friends!!
 -- Avi giving baby Kate (newest addition to the neighbors family) a smooch on her head. Kate giving the world a hello wave! (sorry for the blurry photo - it was too cute to leave out!)
 -- Arriving home from morning workout to find these two all cuddled enjoying a story.
-- The resilience of these Zinnia's from Lisa's garden seven days ago. 


  1. A sweet list. We love every opportunity to gather around your Great G'ma's table. Thanks again, friend.

  2. A lovely list. Love that table, beautiful!

  3. Such lovely things! The food on your table looks so yummy! I love your messy space as well. I feel like my whole house is like that despite my constant picking up. Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thanks KC! yes, our homes are the cycle of messy and clean... that is the life of a home filled with the laughter of children, right?!


I really do LOVE reading your comments. Thanks for visiting.
