The Sweet, Simple Things

It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
-Laura Ingalls Wilder

Another photo of my adorable puppy nephews….Watching them cuddle together in the grass was a small, happy moment in the middle of a very emotional day…

Today, my families’ experiences were so very widespread on the emotional spectrum.

We grieved over the loss of two incredible woman of immense character, who were meaningful friends in our lives…

We suffered through the emotions of a failed test, a test that could have been life changing but wasn’t meant to be passed right now…

On the other side of the spectrum, we celebrated the graduation of my sister from college; she powered through and completed a bachelor’s degree an entire year early, a 4 year program completed in 3 years!! Get it girl!!

We hold each others hands and push through it all together…we try to embrace the sweet, simple things, amongst all the crazy!

2 things I learned from the woman who are now watching over us:

1. Stand up for what you believe and who you are. Your opinions give you bold, irreplaceable character. RIP Marge

2. Try to be the person in the room who’s inner beauty radiates through his/her skin and fight like hell to live life to the fullest until your last breath. RIP Anne
