Bits of Splendor Monday

We had a really good, quiet weekend. No plans. Nowhere to be. Home made waffles, morning snuggles, lots of coloring and pretend house playing. Talks about Jesus and loving people. car tracks that stretched from one room to the next and a lot of hours spent outside with neighbors and friends.  My favorite kind of weekend.
I finally cleaned out my closet too. And I got my first runners injury.....Ok not really, I stubbed it really bad on my closet door and it is now shades of purple I've never seen. A runners injury would sound so much cooler. I did manage to still have one of my best runs on Saturday though. More on that later this week, for now I'm off to enjoy this gorgeous day.

Enjoy today friends! Each new one is such a gift.

It truly is the little, distinct things that make life big. The important thing is taking the time to see them and I believe it can  be   in anything. A project, a recipe, a special moment or milestone,  maybe   just a word or picture you found encouraging.

  1. Cleaning out closets is the best feeling!

  2. I love quiet and unhurried weekends! I also love waffles!

    Hope you have an amazing week!

  3. i like weekends like that. i haven't seen one in forever. sorry about your toe.

  4. Hi Laura,
    I adore those kinds of weekends. As my children get older we seem to have less and less of those relaxing weekends.

  5. Oh for every human I think the number one necessity is for someone to be present with them...connecting is what God created us for!

  6. Happy Monday! It is a runner's injury... you are a runner and it belongs to you right? :)

  7. i love that quote, laura! :) so true, and something i'm trying to be intentional about doing everyday!

  8. Congrats on a great run (and your first "runner's injury"!) :P When I was training for a race once, my toe got so bruised the toenail ended up falling off! (Gah, gross, I know).
    Hope you enjoyed a beautiful day today! :)
