bits and pieces

Life is all about bits and pieces. All the little moments that add up to living. Most days are made up of little things. We string them together and call them life. Every once in a while something momentous happens, but on the whole it's the day to day little things that keep us going.

A simple meal made from fresh summer ingredients.


Stopping to enjoy a simple flower here,


and a simple flower there.


Following a path on a foggy morning, just to see where it takes you.


Wanting so badly to open that gate and walk through,


so that you can walk through fields of wildflowers.


Yes, it's the bits and pieces of everyday living that give us a simple and serene life.

  9. Those are some pretty images for a Sunday morning. Most of our life is about the day to day stuff not the big stuff. So it's good to be reminded of seeing the beauty in the little things too.
