snap it 'every day'
The Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love Snap It challenge today was 'every day' so here's a little trip about my every-day-ness. I'm extremely lucky my every day is safe, happy, peaceful & free, very different from life in many countries around the world. I do not take any of the goodness in my life for granted, especially not my beautiful family.
I believe hearing 'i love you' is even more important than just knowing someone loves you. I must say 'i love you' to my husband & children dozens of times each day. Ditto kisses. Ditto ditto hugs!!
My children have something home baked for recess, today it was a slice of iced butter cake (i often give them icing-less-cake, they never complain) & i went over the top!!
I think colour is incredibly important in improving mood & happiness. I still use the IKEA plates & cups at home, why not, you can't break them & the colours are fun. Dinner time we use Bison ceramics, the palate of pastels are glorious.
I try to eat fruit as snacks & vegetables with lunch & dinner every day. Today we bought a juicer, something i wished we scored as a wedding gift 15 years ago, never too late to get on board right??
We spend time curled up on the lounge every night as a family, if only for a few minutes if we have sport matches & homework, most often an animal is involved. Sometimes just a German Shepherd at our feet (only allowed indoors to sleep) or a little duckling that warms your heart.
For a family who spends more time apart from each other than together, right now, having my handsome soldier home EVERY DAY is the most wonderful blessing a wife, mummy & menagerie of animals can have. Love Posie
