Ordinary Days

...are the best days. Don't you agree? Here are a few pictures of the past week in our country home. And...a couple of ordinary days in Denmark too. : )

Quiet, lazy mornings...

with coffee and old game shows courtesy of Game Show Network...

prep for our upcoming school year...

which includes ironing these cute Etsy finds. Because when we dress for school, we feel better.
Although...we do many, many days in our jammies. Just a little disclaimer there. To keep it real, you know. : )

Beautiful afternoon jammies and rainboots and unbrushed hair...

yummy afternoon snacks...

and beautiful evenings on the porch...

before we head in for cozy nights on the couch with our Pirates. girl is having the time of her life!
Her Nicolas is taking her to zoos and parks and on picnics...

in front of castles, no less! They are having a wonderful time and I am so happy for her. She loves his family, and they are taking such good care of her. I even got a text from my girl that they went to church. With pictures to prove it!!!! : ) She returns next week...full of memories and excitement I'm sure.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. And enjoy however it is that you spend your own Ordinary Days.


  1. Great pictures! We love CHC over here!

  2. Love the peek at your ordinary days, but I think they are really extraordinary! So sweet that your girl is having fun in Denmark -- how special is that! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. That last picture with the castle is so cool! Frame that one for her! Love your days. So relaxing!

  4. Love love love it!! Those ordinary days are the BEST - especially with the ones we love.
    And Madison does look like she's having the time of her life. Long distance must be so difficult, but they both seem to show so much maturity in their dedication and caring to each other. I think they both must have been raised right by some awesome parents! ;)
    Happy weekend to you my Dear! xo

  5. Have a great weekend, my friend. I loved seeing your photos from the week, and seeing the school plans lining up. How wonderful that you can homeschool.

  6. I totally agree ordinary days are the best, perfect for making some beautiful memories no matter what side of the world you are on. Have a great weekend.

  7. I love ordinary regular days! (And my favorite time at church is Ordinary Time!) Anyway, thanks for sharing your beautiful life and family with us on your blog. And do you think your sweet Madison is going to come home with an engagement ring??? They look so happy and peaceful in those pictures!

  8. We reared our children on a 30 acre farm and now live in the city. I miss those walks in pajamas! Beautiful pictures and so glad Madison is having a good time. Happy Friday to you.

  9. You know I love and need to see your ordinary (but wonderfully extraordinary) days!

  10. Beautiful...I am so happy to hear about Madison, I was wondering how she was doing. Have a Blessed Saturday, friend.

  11. Yes, ordinary days are the best and I've been enjoying many of them. Coffee and game shows are right up my alley. My favorites are Family Feud, $20,000 Pyramid and The Match Game. I love the beautiful pictures that you took outdoors and that amazing rainbow.

    I'm glad I found your blog today. I really enjoyed the visit. Have a lovely weekend... :)

  12. I was just wondering the other day how she is doing and when she gets back. I'm so happy that she is enjoying her wonderful trip, seeing many amazing things, I'm sure!

  13. Looks like you are all ready for the new school year - even new school clothes! What a great opportunity for your oldest to visit Denmark. Looks like the young man is someone very special! Have a great week.

  14. Love to hear about your ordinary days. I may have to do a post like this. Can I take your idea?

  15. Ordinary days are great aren't they! Just pottering about and doing this and that! Glad that your daughter is having a great time on her travels! xx


Thanks so much for saying hello!
