This post should have gone out on Wednesday. But, you know, life happened. And work and children and school and errands and guests and the first cold of the year for the whole household. So instead it’s going out today.
A thoroughly busy ten days which included the annual back-to-school transition. Some days it’s been a challenge to find the beautiful. Even after more than 550 days of doing this project, it still amazes me how easy it can be to forget that the beauty is always there. I find myself continually having to remind myself that if I can’t see it straight away, I just need to look a little harder.
Day 551: One of the last few days of the holidays, so we headed for the park. On our way home the girls noticed lots of flowers that had fallen from the hanging basket displays. They carefully collected them up and we took them home and displayed them in a shallow bowl of water. They made our kitchen table pretty for days 🙂 I love how the girls notice the beauty in the ordinary things that the rest of us would normally disregard.
Day 552: Our last day of freedom before going back to school, so we ran a few last minute errands and then headed to our favourite cafe for a hot chocolate as it was freezing. But the cafe was closed for refurbishment! Not willing to be defeated, we recreated it at home instead 🙂
PS: Do you like the new format of my #projecthappy posts? I love having the pictures so much bigger 🙂
