Well… maybe “bounty” is stretching it a little. But our garden IS producing some fun stuff, and Liv has been right there to gather it up. I am so glad our garden has survived this year! A first, this late in the summer. I knew growing things together would be more fun than trying to do it all by myself.
This sign adorns the entrance of our house, and convicts me all the time. In a good way.
I love the meaning behind this sign, on so many levels… Simplicity is a deeply ingrained desire of mine. Because I’m in Mommyhood right now, I realize this doesn’t mean a perfectly clean house, as great as that’d be… You live in your house, mess happens, it’s all good. But to me, it’s more than just “mess”… it means “less.” I could keep our house simple and efficient if I had less to work with.
I’m a little plant-happy this year…if you couldn’t tell. Every morning, I make the girls their breakfast, brew some coffee, pour a mug, and head outside to water our little plants. I love morning sunshine. It’s a comfort.
