some days…

it’s amazing how something as simple as a picture can make such a difference in your day.

i bought canvases of the boys. 
they are 16×16 and i am in. love. with them.
they are amazing, and they are on the wall in front of me as i speak. 
i literally smile every single time i look at them.
i wake up, get out of bed and smile.
they just remind me of how thankful i am that God blessed me and adam with such amazing boys.
a picture can bring you back to a time in your life and kind of hold you there for a minute.
like this one? us in college. 
brings back so many great memories. 

and then this one? see i didn’t need a fancy camera or an expensive backdrop.
it was a cheap point and shoot, and a wrinkled sheet.
but ya know what? i still smile when i look at it.
it reminds of those crazy days in my life that i can hardly even remember sometimes.
the days when adam was leaving super early in the morning for work at one job. then driving to his next job and staying super late, just to make sure he was providing for his little family while allowing me to stay home with the boys.
it was crazy times of financial struggles, mostly no sleep and lots and lots of teenagers at our house!
isn’t it wild all the things that come back when you see one picture?

it reminds me to take more pictures.
to be thankful for everything i have
and to smile more.

 
some days…
a picture is exactly what you need to get your day started right.
