The Last Days of Summer

September 4, 2017 0 Comments

I’ve said it a million times but WOW.. this summer flew by so fast. I can’t believe Knox is now in preschool and our days of warm summer nights are limited. How does time just sneak right past us.

I’ve been thinking a lot about being present in the moment.. maybe it’s because I’m completely stunned that I have a four year old.. butΒ either way it’s been on my mind! I’m definitely guilty of looking ahead and planning for the next big thing. I have goals and dreams and sometimes get wrapped up in the excitement of them.Β But while I’ve been looking forward.. I’ve forgotten to look right in front of me. At the beautiful things happening right under my nose. Why is it so easy to take the blessings in your life for granted and to always long for more?

I’m working on slowing down.. being in the moment.. putting down my phone.. enjoying the little beautiful things that happen everyday with my kids. I don’t want to miss the precious moments of the days when my boys are little and I am their world. Of messes and food fights. Of snuggles and open mouth kisses from the babies. Of thumb sucking and tic-tac-toe games. Life is beautiful NOW.

We are soaking up the last days of the sun. We hiked up to this beautiful bridge behind my in-law’s house in Draper and had so much fun. I love the little adventures my boys take me on and I love life they have given me!
