Abundance




Life is abundant right now. From the food harvested daily from the garden, to the pantry shelves and the freezer filling up with the goodness of summer, to the people, family and friends, we spend our days with, to the simplicity and beauty of nature that surrounds us, to the intentional slowness of our days. I am taking the time to notice it all, to really pay attention. I am choosing to be aware and mindful, soaking up every last bit of abundance in our life right now.

I wish you the most wonderful start to your week.

  6. What bounty! Those tomatoes are gorgeous... we are still waiting for the explosion. Last week,s cold spell stunted many of them, but the next few days should resolve that! Your shelves are starting to look like ours. Running out of space here, going to IKEA for more shelves this week-end. :-)

    I love that you embrace the simple things, all the simple things make for an extraordinary life!

    have a wonderful week as well friend. xo

  11. Love the labels on your jars - so perfectly cute. I was explaining to my daughter the other day that there are Heirloom Tomatoes and for the rest of the day she kept saying "what's that thing call mom, and Heirjack?"

    1. Thank you. The actual pantry was made by my hubby, so not only is it wonderful to see it filled with jars of food, but it is so special because he made it :)

      That is too funny!
