C'est la Vie: Lost and Found

I was 99% sure when I made the phone call that I would find my camera. We were out at The Children's Museum last night and the possibility of having lost my camera was somewhat real. I am surprisingly good at keeping track of "things" in spite of the fact that I am generally kind of a space cadet. So, having scoured the house, dumped my purse, and rummaged through the car, I figured it was worth the phone call.

Sure enough, no camera had been turned in at the museum, so I went on with life, hoping it would turn up. Within the hour, it did. In the most unlikely of places: on my bedroom floor under my pajamas. I don't usually leave pajamas lying around, so imagine my surprise when I picked them up to find a camera underneath! Now when I was a teenager, sure. There were layers of clothing, towels, papers, and junk with who-knows-what lurking below. But as a mom, I find more stress in piles and disarray than I do in taking the extra time to just clean up. All that to say, finding the camera on the floor under a pile of stuff was a surprise. A pleasant one, but still a surprise.

So in honor of my discovery and for fear that I could lose them once more, here are some recent photos that lifted my spirits.

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you. 16  Preserve me, O God, for in you I  take refuge. 2  I say to the  Lord , “You are my Lord;      I have no good apart from you.” 3  As for  the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,      in whom is all my delight. 4  The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;      their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out      or  take their names on my lips. 5  The  Lord  is  my chosen portion and my  cup;      you hold my  lot. 6  The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7  I bless the  Lord  who  gives me counsel;      in  the night also my  heart instructs me. 8  I have  set the  Lord  always before me;      because he is at my  right hand, I shall not be  shaken. 9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my  whole being rejoices;      my
