Deep Breath

I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them - Andy (The Office finale)

There's a lot of beauty in ordinary things - Pam (The Office finale)

Life is so full. I found myself remembering these two quotes from The Office series finale over recent weeks (a miracle in itself since my brain is feeling every bit of a sluggish 40). I am guessing I am not the only one to find it much easier to get caught up in the busyness of life instead of pausing for a deep breath with the realization that these full days are good and blessed.


I flew to Oklahoma last week. It went by much too fast, and we skipped all the food and fun pictures this year. Food and fun still happened, of course.

I did, however, take a picture of my cute new red shoes (which I would never have bought with peer pressure from Becky).

Camden suddenly switched from uniform polos (ugly) to plaid shirts (cute) this week, and I thought he was actually paying attention to his looks. Turns out, I just needed to do laundry.

The tree outside the front door has beautiful red leaves right now. I took a pretty picture, but though you'd enjoy the photo bomb from Rory instead.

Addison paid us a visit this week.

Rory was sick last week (you know the throat is in bad shape when both the nurse and doctor respond with a "whoa" after seeing it) and needed a penicillin shot. She spent most of 72 hours not speaking because her throat was so sore, but this photo was taken during an Ibuprofen high.

Busy weekend ahead. Pausing for a deep breath first.
