days like pearls









"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
― L.M. Montgomery

  3. reading that quote, then, scrolling through your photos, i see you are in a place of appreciating life as it comes.
    doggie starfish toes, freshly baked bread, glancing at immediate surroundings and seeing the beauty in them.
    i like this place where you are....this place of being in the moment, one pearl slipping off, following another,
    and another, then, another....

  4. when we truly appreciate these simple joys then we know at the end of each day that it's been a good one. a string of these pearls adds up to a life well lived, I think...

  6. Such a wonderful quote and photos to go along with. I agree wholeheartedly. It reminds me of the quote that has something to do with treasuring the small moments now because you may realize they were big moments later. Love the photo of your pup!!!!!! : ) xoxo
