its simple really ; )
It seems that for me, the simple things in life color my world most vividly, at a days end or when my life needs a bit of slowing down. There are times when I purposely pull the car over, and swing on a parks swings, with my children. Or looking at the palms of my husbands hands. These are the times I want to remember. These are the times I want to pause, and be grateful for.
It's the simple things in life, that touch my soul the most...
