Grateful in the end of August

It was a week of simple gifts: paper, paint, a dogs with a torn ACL, children in trees with books, food that made us laugh, friends. Nothing earth-shattering. Just simple, quiet gifts all week that whispered “I love you” from above. My list for the week:


  • watercolor birdsIMG_1510

  • getting to see Beth twice in one week
