little things

Sometimes it takes the little things in life to put it all in perspective. For me, it's usually the little things that do. Today, amidst all the craziness of doing laundry, at the same time as making breakfast, getting ready for the day, thinking about all the things I have to do before I'm in a lecture this afternoon, and planning for my little sister's graduation party tonight, I walked into the living room and found this shadow on the wall. The flowers I bought at yesterday's farmers market in the living room window, and the morning sun, cast this onto the wall. And, within just one hour, it was gone. Life is beautiful and all these little things make it just that much more obvious. Enjoy the little things today.

Aww so sweet. What a great inspiration. It is easy to get too busy and not document these little things.

I love when there is a rainbow in the house all of a sudden!
