to hard at planning awesome moments.
We woke up late because Emmett had a doozey of an early morning. As I was preparing to dash around to make it to church less than 30 minutes late, I happened upon the email update that due to excessive snow, all services had been cancelled. I rushed Emmett into his warm little shark suit and it was out into snow.
There is something magical about just after a big snow. The quiet tracks on the street. The perfect blanket of white across the lawn. Everything has the hush of white and early morning. Emmett thought snow shoveling was hilarious, as was Adam's handfuls of snow that he threw our way. My family stopped by. They brought Emmett a gift of tiny bananas. It was this beautiful moment of laughter and excitement.
There was no outfit planning. No make-up on. Just little moments frozen in time. Perfect in their own way. It makes me think that maybe I need a little more un-planning in my life. A little more of being unplugged. A little more carpe diem. A little more just finding what's beautiful right now and simply enjoying it.
Also, I never got the perfect Christmas card photo taken which is fine because what could I have planned that would top this?!
^^ I don't even like bananas, but these little baby ones?! I die! ^^- - -
May your last Christmas days be so merry and bright!!
Only two days left, friends!!
