The Small Things

Spring is just around the corner. Can you feel it? Here in London the tulips are popping up out the ground. When I open my curtains each morning they smile up at me from the garden and remind me that today is a day worth celebrating; that there is beauty all around; that there is so much joy to be found in the small things.

And so, despite the girl's colds that have been lingering way longer than they should, the cold weather that is refusing to warm up even when the sun is shining, we have been doing a lot of enjoying. And trying to catch the moments with the camera.

We've been enjoying picnics on the lawn,

and cute boogery-slobery smiles.

We've been enjoying sticks. Lots of sticks everywhere we go. We dance with them and practice our wizarding spell casting skills.

We've been enjoying sweet moments like this one,

street signs with lots of letters to name,

meal-time messes,

and a daily carton of milk when preschool is over.

We've been enjoying quirky expressions caught on camera,

and spur-of-the-moment naps.

But mostly we have just been enjoying spending time together. Each day passes so quickly, and the girls are growing and changing so much each day that I find myself pleading with Time to please slow down.

Your girls are precious, and I love reading about your life around the world.

Hope your runny noses are better,
