Break It Down

1.09.2013

At home, everything is simpler. It's a sudden shift to make from our chaotic college lives where things aren't always as such. So, during my last few weeks at home I've made it my mission to soak in all the simple things--my nephew's smile, my cozy bed, ample storage for all my things, mama's specialty: perfectly folded laundry, no GPS-required navigation, a shower with a tub, no alarm clocks,

game nights with my nieces,

and the simple pleasure and joy that I get out of sharing it with all of you. Merl's here tonight, so signing off for now!

Cute post! Great pics. Especially the third one down of the food. Nice. Oh, and the Ty one, of course. Oh, and love Ceci holding the shoe.

Lovely pictures and captured moments. My favourite photo is the old fashioned cinema - it looks so old-fashioned Hollywood!
