Simple Moments

I’m not online as much as before and with good reason; it’s to enjoy living, family, and the simple moments that you might not see as meaningful but I do.

Truett loves Max. He goes down the slide with him, sometimes pushing him down.  He acts like he’s shoeing him.  He chases him and pulls his tail but it’s this sweet 15-second moment that shows his kindness.

Puppy Love

I know you can’t tell but they are both laughing together. I don’t know what about and I don’t want to know because that is their moment.  Mine is watching father and son having a giggle together.

Something Funny

I have no clue what little man is lookin’ up at ’cause I didn’t see anything there.  Maybe it was a plane I missed, maybe a bird that flew by, or maybe he’s seeing a glimpse of his abuela and great grandmother….who knows, but he was still for what seemed like forever.

Lookin' Up

It’s rodeo time and game-face is on!  Both cowboy and horse are in concentration, making sure not to let that steer get by.  Still can’t believe I’m the mom of a 16yr old.

Cowboy Concentration

Who doesn’t love to see their son with his Dad but what I love about this photo, is seeing their hands together and my man’s thumb on little man’s hand and his hand holding Dad’s finger.

I know that everyone gets busy with things but I hope y’all are taking the time to enjoy the simple moments.

    You are so right. Enjoying the little things is so important. I am guilty of just going through themotions at times. Your post is a great reminder of what I might be missing.

    I love the last picture the most.
