Bigger Picture Moments: Featuring {Danielle}

Every Thursday, we come together to share the harvest of intentional living by capturing a glimpse of the Bigger Picture through a simple moment. And this month, February, we’re adding a little twist — LOVE.  Won’t you join us?  Reflect upon something simple but lovely: a memory, a proposal, a falling, a feeling, a connection.

Let’s show LOVE this February in our Bigger Picture Moments!

Here’s a glimpse at one of our favorites from last week, shared by Danielle at Sugar and Snails.  Click over to read the rest!

There was an epic diaper blowout in the morning and vomit at the dinner table.

And in between, I felt a tender moment.

It happened somewhere between my efforts at feeling like a confident mother as I strolled my slightly feverish 2-year-old (wearing only a shirt and diaper) through errands and fending off dry heaves while being sprinkled with spit-up.

Oh, right, the moment. It was this:

I got to hold my baby, who really isn’t one anymore, while he sank into my shoulder, grew heavy and fell asleep.

This week’s link-up is being hosted by Alita.  Please head over to share your moment and encourage others as we express our lives in the simplicty — the complex simplicity — of an everyday moment.

We can’t WAIT to discover your moments!

‘Twas the Write After Christmas {Day 4}

We’ve been celebrating the creative side of the holiday all month with ‘Twas the Write Before Christmas . The link up’s all open until the end of the month, so be sure to check them out to refresh your creative spirit in the post holiday slump!

This week I am going to randomly select one person who linked up each day to feature here, be sure to go wish them well in their creative journey!

‘Twas the Write Before Christmas Day 4: Decorations (image)

‘Twas two weeks before Christmas,
With my children in tow,
Did I stand in the post office with a package to-go.
The kiddos were prancing and dancing about,
Drenched in holiday spirit and too much sugar, no doubt.

Please head over to Sugar and Snails to read the rest and be inspired by our prompt.
