I couldn't resist posting these pictures of Edith...
alone with me while the rest of the kids are at school.
happiest of weekends to you!

you can look at things in life,
or you can see them.
it could have been all the flooding here in town
and the fact that we have been without drinking water for days,
or maybe it's that the heat and humidity finally lifted
and it feels like we can breathe again,
but i find i am seeing more beauty
and finding gratitude
for all of summer's blessings.
falling in love with our home again
after being convinced that we should move, even putting an offer on another house.
loving our short family trip to chicago,
the colors and unexpected surprises at the lincoln park zoo,
fun times with my brother and his family,
new places to discover together,
our kids and friends splashing their way through summer's scorching days,
my grandma--soon to be 95 years old,
dinners prepared with our garden's goodness,
friendships developing and flourishing during tender youthful years.
seeing it all.
and full of gratitude.
