Simplicity

Most days we get so caught up with day to day living, with the hectic rush that has become our life that we fail to stop and appreciate the little things. The simple things. The things which colour up our life and lift out spirits. For in the midst of all the chaos, there is beauty beneath our feet.

Just a short post today – to make your lives less hectic :)

  1. Oh, Loree, this may have been a short post but one that is so full of meaning! What truth in those words! Just to look at the tiny little wildflowers by the roadside drooping their little heads in the afternoon sun is such a treat. It is too easy to forget how lucky we are. Thanks for reminding us.
