Ordinary moments of ordinary days are underrated, don't you think? It is so easy these days to set up and edit a photo to portray moments in our lives in a way that embellishes them rather than celebrates them for what they are. Blessedly ordinary. Growing up before the age of instant gratification, I recall special events like birthdays, holidays, and weddings being the times we all squeezed together and smiled for the camera. Now, we have the ability to make every single photo we take portray a perfect moment in a perfect life. Perfect lives do not exist. But regular, ordinary, messy, random, fun, silly, and real ones do. Here are just a few of the random moments in our lives this week.
Mocha. Just being Mocha.
Me. Heading in from an evening on the boat, life vests and wet towels in hand.
And a happy lunch with these two besties who are looking more alike every single day.
Have a lovely weekend, my friends. It is going to be rainy here, so I am planning to complete our fall decorating. I know. It is still August. But I can't pass up a cozy, rainy day. We will also watch mass and get groceries. That's it. And I am glad.
Humbly offered with prayers for those who gave their lives yesterday, their families, all those who are and who have served in Afghanistan and around the world. For us.
