“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life that are the real ones after all.” ~Laura Ingalls Wilder

There are charming little things all around this summer.   Things we’ve never seen before.

Does anyone know what this purple flower is?


And does anyone know why we would decorate a child’s bedroom with little dragonflies? Those things are a bit scary in real life. And they’re big!


And, speaking of little things, we had our first garage sale today.  We sold 5 years worth of kids clothes and 20 years worth of Dan’s CDs.  You would be shocked at how much money those little things brought in!  Yay for the simple things.
