In pictures: beauty in the mundane

I do this a lot on my Instagram account, but today I thought I’d share a few moments where I’m looking for beauty amidst the mundane.

For flax-colored golden trees as I drive. They say, “Look at me! I’m alive and vibrant and full of glory!”:


For a sweet baby girl whom I get to steal away with for quiet moments to nurse:


For jeans that fit and are the right length (got them hemmed for this shorty!) (jeans are Madewell):


For a few quiet minutes before school pickup. I’m choosing to read instead of looking at my phone.
For these two boys and their boisterousness, for that too, is beautiful:
For my mom coming with fresh art supplies and the perfect Fall day:

For a yummy meal with a glass of wine:
