I'm sorry that I haven't been posting much lately.

Life has slowed down, tremendously.
You would think that I would have more than enough time to blog but instead fill my days with summer fun and reading.
I love reading.
It is one of my favorite things to do.
Give me a good book and that it what I will spend all of my free time {as well as some not so free time} reading.


Miss Abigail has some long hair, however, she hates me to do anything with it other than put a clip in it.
Last week she actually let me put her hair in PIGTAILS! 
I think pigtails are the cutest thing on little girls.

I couldn't show you the back of Abby's head and not show you one of her face.
My friend D'Neil took this picture of Abby at church on Saturday.
This is Abby's new face.
She smiles and covers her mouth, such a bashful little beauty.

Yesterday afternoon I took the kiddos to the pool for the first time this summer.
It felt like a pretty big accomplishment for me as I took all three girls to the pool by myself.
Before this had felt pretty daunting but now it felt doable.
It was a beautiful day.
We met up with my two dear friends, Jennifer and Clara.
The kids played and played and played.
It was a great afternoon.

Ballet recital.
Ainsley had her first ballet recital last night.
It was precious.
It was the first dance recitals that one of my children have participated in and I loved every single minute of it.
{it was an outdoor recital too, how perfect!}
She danced and smiled and was shy and just....well, just amazing.
I have no other words to describe it.
It was one of those moments that you always hope to have.
That moment where your heart feels such happiness and contentment that for a moment the world seems ideal.
I have no idea how else to describe it.
Pure bliss.
This is the song she danced to.
For some reason it fills me with such wistful happiness.


  1. I love pigtails on little girls. So cute! I sure wish I could have see the dance recital. I'm sure she was adorable.

  2. They are too cute for words, Danna! All of them!

  3. So cute, I can't wait for my little girl to get here so I can do all the fun girly things with her!
