sweet summertime.


"In order to be utterly happy the only thing necessary is to refrain from comparing this moment with other moments in the past, which I often did not fully enjoy because I was comparing them with other moments of the future." ~Andre Gide~

Oh this quote... So true. I have been loving this summer and trying to savor the moments. It is by far the busiest summer. Five kids keeps me hopping. But we are having fun...most of the time! :)

here are a few pictures, mostly from my phone, capturing moments from our summer days.
