A Humble Fall Arrangement – Burlap and Wildflowers

Happy Monday!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

 We are recovering from a busy, yet happy weekend as
 hubby and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary and our 
youngest son played his last soccer tournament of the year.

 I am happy to report his team placed first overall in 
the regular season and also won the playoff tournament. 

Hubby is the coach and I adore seeing him beam with pride 
as his ‘boys’ celebrated their victory.  Little moments that are engraved
 in my heart forever and make me love him more and more each day.

Do you ever have days when you are fully present?
 When each and every smell, sound and sight 
become so vivid and fills you with tender love?

That’s what this weekend was like for me.
 I’ve realized once again that I don’t need fancy gifts 
or expensive dinners to know that I am loved. 
That my family’s happiness is not dependent on the
 material but on the support and love we have for each other.
I am always humbled and grateful 
that God takes care of us the way he does.

Life may be full and extravagant 
or humble and sparing. 
But if love is the centre of it, 
it will be a happy one.
You just have be present.

During one of my walks with our dog, I picked some wild 
flowers from the fields.  They are considered weeds and yet when 
I brought them in and gave them a home along with some of my 
hydrangeas, they became a beautiful part of a fall arrangement.

A humble yet beautiful fall arrangement. 

 Here are some iPhone photos I shared on Instagram 
This pretty much sums up our relationship – he drives me crazy,
 I drive him crazy and at the end of the day we are deeply in love. 

 And here is our proud boy with his trophies. 
The trophies are just the tangible part, as what is truly 
important is the time he spent with his dad making 
memories.  That is the real victory in this story. 

Thank you for allowing me to share a little bit of our lives with you.

Have a beautiful beginning of the week! 

much love,
