It's silent as I type this.
I hear my Littles softly breathing while sweet dreaming, and Charly is snoring by the back door.
The house is warm, and smells of bread.
Winter is quiet. Still.
It begs you to stand back and just watch.
Take little tiny moments and turn them into something bigger.
I had bread cooling on the counter, and moved it to the table so I could clean the kitchen.
The night moved on quickly.
An hour later I walked through the room--
I took the time to notice,
it looked pretty to me.
Something so simple, looked pretty, but only because I took the time to look.
Winter Survival Tip #3: slow down. watch. listen.
I find myself enjoying the little things much more in winter--even though the days are shorter, I feel as though we have more time.
We spend more time indoors--together.
Snuggling and playing.
Doing nothing, which just may be the very best something.
slow down today, and take time to listen or look for something new.....I'd love to hear about it:)
