Sunflowers and Memories

Life can get busy and as a result, sometimes, it's easy to forget about the things that really matter. 

These are the times you just want to slow down for a minute, take stock of life and what really matters and smell the roses...or in this case the sunflowers.


Sometimes, you just need to enjoy the day...


and create some happiness and memories in the process.


Sometimes, you just need to take some time and refocus on what really matters.


Hoping you've had your share of happiness and good memories this past month and that you might have captured some of it in pictures.  If so, make sure you come back tomorrow and share your own story in the 'This is Me' self portrait link party.

  5. Great post! I agree with you... sometimes we get carried away and forget about what really matters. I had the chance to really reflect on that during my blogging hiatus. I really needed it... and I'm so glad I did take that time away. :) I love your precious pictures... and I love sunflowers!

  13. I think at some point in Grace's life someone is going to say 'you look exactly like your mom'. Like maybe me. Like maybe now.

  18. Your photos are beautiful as ever. As are you and Grace. I'm partial to the black and white.
    Thanks for the touching story to go with it. We all have to take time to smell the roses. Or sunflowers, as the case may be;)
