:: noticing the moments ::

…taking some time to reflect upon my week

:: squam…oh, squam

:: porter’s lodge {cabin}…heather, aleece, tisha, melinda {mates}…kisses {to my cabin mates and all the lovely souls with whom i shared these fall squam days}

:: roadtrip

:: coming home to my little family…hugs, kisses…questions from the kids, trying to understand exactly what it was i was doing in those woods by the lake

:: both kids not feeling well this week {though they’ve improved by week’s end}…the first night of being sick, my poor little daughter vomited a few times…i will never forget two things:  my husband cleaning the bathroom floor and {later that night} my husband sitting on the bathroom floor, leaning against the wall with my daughter’s limp, tired, pathetic body curled against his…i was not happy that she was feeling so poorly, but i was happy she was in the arms of her daddy

:: fantastically gorgeous weather

:: adjusting to the fact that there is no glorious salad bar awaiting me at each mealtime…no table of sweet desserts…now it falls to me…which i don’t mind, but it was *so* nice to be fed so well by someone else

:: sinking into familiar rhythms and comfortable spaces

i am hoping you enjoyed special moments in your week.  as always, i love to hear from you…


sending  a little love your way, m

  1. Michelle, such a delight, this & the previous post about Squam. Both the words & photographs evoke such a deep response that I’m still unable to unravel. There are thoughts & ideas, memories that buzz so rapidly through my head I am unable to grasp even just one of them without having the next one whiz by and shift my focus in a completely different direction! I love these reflections as it allows me to calm some of those swirling thoughts and sit quietly fully focused on all that I was so blessed to experience there at one of Mother Natures true wonderlands! The people (you) sights, sounds, feelings, will forever hold a special place in my heart! Thank you for calming thoughts & sharing your heart!

  2. I am glad your children are now feeling better, it is just awful to see our little ones, or bigger ones, feeling unwell.

    My little ones are mostly grown but I still hate to see them sick. One has left for his second year of uni today, the house already feels a little emptier.

    Have a wonderful weekend, I hope your children keep getting better.


  3. I am not sure how I clicked my way here, but no matter, I am happy to have landed here. I don’t think we met, but I sure wish we did. Your visions and words for Squam in your posts are lovely and similar to the gladness I hold for myself and my own experience there…perhaps we will meet at a future squam one day :).

    warmth and wellness to your babes…

  4. I love how you appreciate everything the day gives xxxxxx I love you noticing the little things and reminding me they exist xx thank you..emma

  5. Sorry your babies were sick, but glad to hear they are better now.
    Oh yes, it would be nice to walk into the kitchen and have a large salad
    bar to pick from instead of having to chop everything myself. ;) Oh, one
    can dream.
