Don’t mind the leftover birthday party balloons from over a week ago..
Last night I was finishing up the after dinner chaos.. cleaning, next day prep.. yelling at the kids to clean up after themselves.. you know the routine..
I was bending over to pick something up off the ground by the front window when this stunning sunset caught my eye. This photo does it no justice. The sky was filled with beautiful purples, pinks and oranges.. simply breathtaking!
Immediately I called my daughter Chelsea into the room to look out the window, and her reaction was a moment I’ll never forget. She just exclaimed so loud and so excited.. “WOW! I can’t believe it!” And then we talked about all the colors we saw and how pretty it was while we watched the colors fade.
I love that she experienced so much joy from such a simple, natural wonder. I hope she continues to realize how pretty this earth is, and explores every nook and cranny of it.
And in the meantime, stop annoying your brother and put that damn sippy cup in the sink!
