simply saturday: the seasons

leaf

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

fall

Today, it was raining, cold and windy. When the wind blew it caused the leaves to fall from the trees. It looked like it was snowing leaves and it was fun to watch them dance and twirl to the ground. I wanted to take a picture but I was cuddled under a blanket with the boys watching "Mulan". It was a beautifully simple moment that I'll treasure.

What are the simple pleasures that you are thankful for today?

Every year I feel like fall gets away from me. It's my favorite season but I never take time to enjoy it. I vow to do that this weekend.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

I am thankful that I didn't have to get up at 6:00 a.m. I am thankful for the way the blustery wind howls around my. I am thankful my husband has returned from a long business trip! I am thank God doesn't abandon nor forsaken!

What a motivational post!

Tia~ I Just use a cannon elph but I upload to flickr and make them pretty by using "auto correct" and turning up the color a notch. Love it!
