Little things

Yesterday morning while showering I placed a scrub sponge under my foot and cleaned the tub while I washed my hair. That pretty much sums up my life right now.

It's the little things that mean so much at the moment.  The mom that comes and rescues my kid from a day of watching me sand plaster and wears him out enough that bedtime comes before dark and sleep comes right after prayers are said.

It's a trip to the farmer's market on foot...


with the Hulk.





Where we found a new furry friend.



And an old one.




There is also the almost finished powder room that has me sighing.  Here's a sneak peak...


...oh and those mock orange blossoms are the bomb.

And this girl...


and her 8 friends that showered her with love and presents at her 10th birthday party...I adore.

  1. You crack me up Tara! The scrub brush under foot is a pretty good idea :)

    I am in LOVE with your hanging light in the bathroom. I want to hang one under our new portico when its done...hubby thinks it looks like a Christmas decoration. What do you think of it for the exterior?

  8. Is that not how normal people clean the tub? Loving the pictures at the market and I cannot wait to see the reveal of your powder room ~ peeking at the light fixture ~ perfection.... How is the kitchen coming or dare I ask? I have all the baseboards for upstairs stacked in the living room and they have been there since the long week-end in May ~ living the dream we are. Happy birthday to your sweet girl. Happy week-end.
