Just Breathe


Sometimes we just need to stop and take a breath.  My grand daughter and I got to spend a lovely morning together this week.  I needed to introduce her to my world of plant shopping :)  We went to three nurseries and looked at all the available offerings. She was so content to ride in the pull along wagon with her snack of orange juice and sausage biscuit.  Of coarse I came home with some new babies.  Meg had her all dressed up for the outing.  When I went to pick her up she said "Nana look at my new dress!"  She was so happy to be going on errands with me and all dressed up to boot. I know these days of her enjoying my simple company and a simple outing like this will fly by quick. I am trying to not let it all fly by so fast it becomes a big blur.

We ended up at the park for some romping and sunshine. (momma said she took a good long nap this afternoon)  It is funny how the older I get it is the simple things I am beginning to enjoy more. I think that is what makes grands and their Nana's so able to enjoy the same things.  It was so good to just be in the sunshine and take a breath.

She is absolutely adorable, and I esp. love the top photo where her eyes are closed---she does look like she's taking a deep breath.

Your pictures capture her sweetness perfectly. :)

What a beautiful day to spend with little Puddin' Toes! While life is still very go-go-go for me, I do find myself stopping and staring out the window more, or taking a few minutes to go outside into the sunshine, enjoying the smell of a fresh pot of coffee, etc. These gentle moments are such a blessing. :)

One adorable little girl and her pretty grandma spending the day together...what could be better? Just love the simple joy I get from looking at these pictures and knowing in my heart how special times like these are.

Less is More. That's what I keep hearing and I agree totally!

What a sweet post sis! Just you and miss PT! And...I recognize that park and the boat dock!

Thank you for taking us along on this excursion. I'm so glad that you and your granddaughter have time together and what wonderful photos you took of her. I especially love the first...

Looks like a bit of quality time was just the thing today. So good to slow down and appreciate what you have in that sweet little girl. By the way I like all the pink!

How blessed you are to get to take your granddaughter out alone for the afternoon.

Such a peaceful picture the first one. Now you will be busy planting.
Still bitterly cold here.

Cindy, how wonderful that you had some one on one time with PT. I loved your comment this morning... it made me smile. Yes, we do seem to love the same things. I'd love to see YOUR clock. Did you ever get some Paris tea? If you do, you may never go back to Lady Grey again. ;) Having my afternoon tea has now become a compulsion for me.

Blessings,
Christi

What a little doll. I can't wait to be a grandmother, until then I enjoy my friend's little four year old granddaughter. Your photos are lovely too. I love her shoes. I have two daughters, someday sigh.
