POTW - Books

SO, I don't like this photo but my life has suddenly gotten SUPER crazy - in a good way though. I don't have time to re-take! I LOVE books - English major here people! I love the smell of them, the feel of crispy pages, falling apart or brand new, books are wonderful! I never studied in my dorm in college if I could help it. I always found a quiet spot on the second floor of the library to get my study time in. Something comforting about being completely surrounded by words!

POTW - Peace and Comfort

So, I'm terribly far behind of photo-of-the-week assignments. I'll have to make up “signs” at some point, but for now, I'm just going to push forward!
Peace and comfort can come in many forms for me. I have found that when I am the most “at peace” are the times when my family is all together. Caleb and Dylan go to their dad's every other weekend. While I think they are safe there, I never have the complete feeling of comfort that I have when all my kids are in my sight – under my wing. There is just something calming (and wonderful) about being able to check into bedrooms at night and see all my children safe and snug. This weekend we had snow. WHOHOO! I am so thankful that is snowed THIS weekend, while everyone was home. I'm thankful that mother nature timed the snow so that I got to witness the sheer happiness of snowball fights, snowmen, red noses and frozen grins. Peace and comfort in the freezing snow is a magical thing.
