beauty in the everyday

My two oldest went back to school today (as well as my hubby!), so this morning was quiet and peaceful with just the two youngest. I am so happy to be getting back into my routine. I got really motivated and cleaned my kitchen, got caught up on laundry, cleaned Ruth's room, and worked on my etsy shop. It was quite a productive morning!

Here's the two new listings up in my shop. I took photos of them this morning by the window at the top of my stairs. The sun was shining so bright! I think these scarves look so beautiful with all that natural light!

isn't it gorgeous?!

I really love the colors in this one!

I had to include this photo! Ruthie snuck in the frame while I was taking this one. I love the contrast between the fancy scarf and the little girl in her mismatched pajamas.
Which one do you think is more beautiful? Ruth, of course - no contest!
Have a wonderful week! I am looking forward to getting back into the normal day-to-day routine of my life as a stay-at-home mommy of four. There is so much joy to be found in keeping a home. Help me, God, to appreciate the little things. Open my eyes to the simple beauty all around me that I so often overlook.


  1. i join you in that prayer! i am so thankful i have a role as homemaker and am striving for beauty in the everyday.

    Lora, You look at things so well through HIS eyes. I love keeping up with your blog. You are such an encouragement and I know the Lord is so pleased with your heart for HIM and your family! Blessings to you!! Nat
    P.S. I am also happy to get back into the 'routine' and day-to-day life as a stay at home mommy of 3, with one on the way! ;-)
