Any day with daddy is a good day

This lovely lady is hosting her first link up that I just had to jump on board with because I feel it is so important to find the bits of splendor in our every day activities or little moments that you look back on with such fondness. I hope everyone will jump on over to her page and join along.

bits of splendor monday

I find so much splendor on the weekends, when the three of us are together as a family. I get excited about the weekends like I do right before I walk into a movie theater, the smell of the popcorn, sitting in the seats watching all the advertisements and the previews. Maybe it is something that takes me back to hanging out with my own parents on the weekends and going to see an afternoon movie or even more exciting was a movie that allowed us to stay up past our bedtime.

The excitement bubbles over for me when there is impending weather that might cause Daddy to be home on a weekday which was exactly the case last Monday. As many of you know, it only takes about and inch of snow here for the city to shut down. Us southerners!

Although we didn't get a full day, we did get a half day to explore the great white outdoors.

I also find so much slendor in how hard my honey works to think of creative photos for me to take.

The snow literally melted within 1.5 hours of our outdoor adventure, but I will surely remember it much longer than that.

Thanks so much Laura for hosting this link-up! I love the idea and the fact that it will keep me looking for little bits of splendor throughout my day.



  1. Weekends and days where I get to stay home are my favorite as well! I look forward to them from sunday night through Friday afternoon!!

  2. LOVE days like that!!! Looks like y'all had a blast. :-)


  3. What a sweet little boy! I bet he loves having family days as much as you do. ;)

  4. Love that last photo so much! Hooray for a snow day!

  5. This was so sweet. I am so so happy you linked up and I got to "meet" you and your precious family. What a beautiful one you have! I'm jealous of your snow!!!

  6. Your family is gorgeous! Geeze! Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog. Going from 1 to 2 kids is quite a transition…but it just adds that much more beauty to your life! I was shocked to learn how much love my heart was capable of. When I had one son I didn't think I'd be able to love another baby as much as I loved him. It's amazing how God can make your heart keep growing! I say do it….have another baby! It's great to have them close in age to!
