Silver Lining: what matters most

October 28, 2012

what matters most

This time of year can get really hard for my family. Lots of memories, the best and the worst. I don't think I want to say any more about it right now, but yesterday I asked Sam if we could just have a quiet evening at home. We turned on the lamps and burned our favorite candle (yes, my favorite candle is from Walmart. It smells like winter, but happy.). He worked on his model football stadium, and I read my book. There were so many good things to come out of that October, and I don't want to miss a single happy memory this year.

Happy Sunday. Let's all be a little kinder, work a little more diligently, and remember what matters most.


  1. I was thinking of you, especially on Saturday. I like to eat cranberry and mandarins, so they probably smell great also. Sorry you have already entered winter in Utah (snow) when it is still fall.

  2. I was thinking about you this weekend too. Remember the happy!


  3. Sometimes a night at home is just what we need. And I agree, we can always be a little kinder.

  4. Well said! The cold time of year is the best for being close to family and loved ones <3
    Also, thanks for your sweet comment! Your blog is so cute!


  5. I used to burn scented candles all the time but I never remembered to blow out the flame when I left the house. Now I just use plug-ins. Safety first.
