today's multiple choice:

busy is a choice
stress is a choice
joy is a choice

choose well
                    - ann voskamp
we were blessed with a beautiful and restful weekend (thank you)

i was able to dance my soul away with my step choreography class 
(this week's routine had lots of spinning and twirling in it- soooo much fun!!!)

ian played soccer twice.
(not one but two full games of run-around-until-your-joints-can't-take-it-anymore)

the kids got caught up with their sleep
and then ate/played/contemplated cleaning their rooms/rewind.

we visited grandma and we all got showered/pampered/spoiled 
with so much grandmotherly love.

it was lovely...
grandma lives at the end of this beautiful walkway.
when we visit (by car), harlow and (lucky) i get dropped off at the beginning of the walk 
and make our way by foot to her place.
if the weather is beautiful (like it was yesterday), 
we meet up with the gang at her house and circle back 
to enjoy the sea walk facing the sun.
it's a spectacular view of san juan islands.
happy monday everyone!!

  1. Your weekend sounds like it was a lot of fun. I love that you are taking a dance class, I can't dance...or sing, but that doesn't stop me.
    Great photos!

  2. Wow, what a lovely walk. Love that quote!

  3. great quote and what a beautiful walk to have to take. Blessings galore! I cannot imagine running around a soccer field until my joints couldn't take it anymore....yikes!

  4. That quote is wonderful. Your weekend sounds perfect, what a lovely walk to your mother's house.


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
