A weekend by the water with friends

I’m not sure when this happened. The growing up. Our girls. It really does go by in a blink. I still can’t stop saying, “Emma’s 12”. Not sure if I can wrap my mind around this year’s birthday, but it came and went. This weekend we had the girls’ friends in from Houston for a visit. It had been three years almost, since they had last been together. We had a great time in the city and on the lake. Life gets busy, but I try to remember to slow it down, take it in, be thankful for the little moments.

I love finding those moments unexpectedly in the everyday. We miss so much beauty by paying attention to the insignificant.
