elodie and i stood beneath a grove of trees and waited for the wind to shake a leaf or two free. we would run in the direction of the falling leaf, each hoping to grab it before it reached the ground.
elodie taking michael's hand as they walked down some stone stairs and elodie saying "it's a little tricky right here."
bits of dander and blossoms danced on the breeze and we wondered what type of fairy, a wood fairy or a meadow fairy, would use it to build a home.
michael and elodie at the edge of a stream skipping rocks. my heart jumps out of my chest seeing those two together.
it's beautiful to awaken to our children and our surroundings by the simple exercise of quieting our noisy minds.
