Things to remember

These are some of the things I will want to remember from last week 

I thought I hadn't anything captured but then I found these. I've been feeling bad because I've neglected my blog and totally neglected my blogging community - I haven't been visiting anyone. I've been "busy". Busy enjoying the spring. And I've decided that anything besides that will just have to wait. For I have children to play football with, flowers to plant, bikes to ride, running to do and hands to hold on a perfect spring day.

I hope you'll enjoy your spring as well!

The first wood anemones 

Making macarons for the very first time...

...with my sweet little sister.

And I'm wondering when exactly did this happen as I've been watching every bud carefully to witness it.

Long slow walks in the evening light. The light that stays until we fall asleep.

  2. These are such beautiful pictures. I felt bad for neglecting my blog after the third baby was born, but you can always come back to it! I am sure I will disappear again when nr. 4 arrives as well. But the time spend enjoying life away from the computer is much more rewarding. However it is always nice to visit your blog and see your beautiful pictures :)

  7. Family time and enjoying life is, in my humble opinion, more rewarding and important than computer time, Mona. I'm on a break right now myself, with small bits of time stopping by a few blogs. Lovely images, and I'm happy your spring has got your attention. Enjoy!!

  8. As always, I love every picture of your family - their true selves, enjoying life. Please don't feel bad for putting family first. You need never apologize for living a real life and enjoying every minute of it! Likewise, as summer approaches, I will be spending much less time at the computer. My son will be a Senior in high school and off to college in year - and I don't want to miss one minute of this time with him at home!
