An ordinary day {A Bigger Picture Moment}


There is nothing special about today, it's just another ordinary day, but as I sit down to write this today I don't have any looming duties to be done. The piles of laundry have dwindled down to one small basket of clothes that will find their home shortly, my dishes are squeaky clean and neatly stacked in the kitchen cabinets (with the help of my mama) and the images from my shoot earlier this week now have whiter teeth, brighter eyes and are blemish free. As my to do list shrinks in size I feel a little bit of calmness in my life. There are still a few things to check of my list, but at least now I can walk into the kitchen without a pile of dirty dishes staring at me reminding me how behind I am, making me put them off even longer and tonight when I go to grab the boys pj's I won't have to resort to using the ones that rarely leave the drawer.

It's crazy how a minor disturbance in our everyday life can cause so much pile up...But today it didn't seem so piled, just calm and ordinary, now don't get me wrong I use the word calm loosely in house full of boys, it's hard to go any day without a fight, whining and tantrums. The calm part is not trying to get a million things done in between those episodes. Not to mention the boys and I were able to enjoy some time outside and take a short walk with my sister and nephew, thanks to the hundred degree weather taking a vacation! So, nothing spectacular today, just things checked off my list, a casual lunch with family, and enjoying the weather...just an ordinary day, but a happy one...

Since I am being so ordinary today here are few ordinary things that parts of my brighter and happier...

I love this jar, its so simple and it's just a jar, but I love it's blue color and the fact that anything looks good in it, from flowers to an ice cold drink.


This little ducky is a frequent guest during my boys bath time, he's been hanging out for bubble time since my oldest took his first bath!


My youngest carries this little bear everywhere he goes...


I didn't have a awe inspiring bigger picture moment and our day was pretty average, but it was a good day, peaceful, calm and full of love and that is what the bigger picture is about sometimes, ordinary days that leave a smile on your face.

This is my bigger picture moment...If you would like to link up your bigger picture moment Meagan, over at Madeline Bea: Life set to words , is hosting this weeks link up!

    OH, YES!! This exactly! Sometimes the ordinary, the simple is SO the bigger picture in itself. Lovely moments and lovely "simple" photos.
