happy snippets

-Kaleb agreed to let me start teaching him photography- and I could not be more pleased.

-A friend sent me the most beautiful, encouraging text, completely out of the blue, that lifted me up and gave me wings.

-After a trying bout with my wee man, when my head was spinning and I was sorely deflated, he paddled up and gave me a big hug and said "I'll always love you, mamma," and I melted.

-birthday flowers-not sure of their real name, but happy little red wild flowers that pop on our farm this time of year.

-spending a day out and about with my Mom, it's a rare and lovely occasion.

-clean sheets- sure, one of my littles wet our bed, but hey, at least the sheets got clean. There is not much better than climbing into a bed with crisp, clean linens.

-A package came in the mail for me. One I had been wanting oh so badly and it made me oh so deliriously joyous.

-After many a failed yogurt making attempt- I successfully made two batches of the thickest, creamiest, most delicious greek yogurt.

-I have received some of the kindest, most affecting comments here on the blog, that have utterly warmed my heart.

It's been a big week, full of ups and downs and big twisting turns, but it's always important to find the happy. 

Any happy snippets from your week?


  1. My happy snippets this week are I've just found my biggest dream in life (after 21 years haha) and it motivates me a lot to doing things everyday ! And found your blog too ! It's so inspiring :) Thanks and keep up the good work ! :)

  2. Aw I don't know right now.. My week it not was very happy, because my pet was sick, but now is ok! May I will share something better other week :) Have a wonderful weekend, great picture, so cute!

    I'll be happy to join my new collaboration for bloggers cvetybaboration

  3. Ohh homemade greek yogurt sounds fabulous. My week was a rollercoaster, so here's to a steady week in the future!

  4. You make the seemingly ordinary so magical! I'm with you, there's nothing quite like clean sheets!



  5. Hehe I absolutely love changing the sheets... the bed just feels so much nicer... and smells good too :P


  6. belated birthday gifts from kind hearts and an impromptu doughnut dinner from yesterday are my week's highlights

    wishing a very happy Friday to you and your family! xoxo

  7. You have the most beautiful way with words. You always make me want / remind me to pause and savor those sweet little moments throughout the day. So inspiring. Clean sheets are the best. I'm coincidentally washing mine right now.

  8. Beautiful words. Beautiful photo. Like the idea of 'happy snippets'! [I have a package from my Mum calling to be opened, a new magazine and clean sheets to look forward to as soon as I finish work for the day (am waiting on a VC so thought I'd hop over!)]

  9. It's little things that make life so great! I enjoyed reading your special moments. A friend is taking me out to tea. So that made me smile.

  10. "I'll always love you, mamma" SO CUTE!


  11. Glad you had a week filled with happy things. I just love days out with my mom, and clean sheets, oh yes! It's the simple pleasures :)

  12. Receiving things in the post can be so exciting, especially after having waited a while or if it's something you've been really looking forward to receiving.. I'm the same way! I like how you've focussed on the smaller pleasures in life for this post, as they're often the things that slip our notice :)
    - I follow back on bloglovin' -


  13. I really don't know how to describe it, your posts always seem to uplift me, they are so well written and beautiful.
    Inspirational and I can relate to things you write about - everything from the writing to the photography is beautiful and I cannot tell you how much I look forward to checking out new posts :)

    1. Wow, thank you so very much! That means so much to me!

  14. "A friend sent me the most beautiful, encouraging text, completely out of the blue, that lifted me up and gave me wings." - Moments like these are simply good for the soul!

  15. What a wonderful post! You write so poetically and simply inspiring. Being surrounded by loving family and friends is the greatest gift. My week has been a challenge, searching for jobs in Cairns. With a little (or a lot of) determination, I finally got hired and will fly up there on friday. Take care x


    1. Congratulations! That's definitely something to be happy about, way to go!

  16. *your* writing style makes me want to curl up with chai and read through all these blogs- it's so warm and inviting, and the blog world is lucky to have you <3

  17. I really love your pictures! which camera do you use???
