Cade wanted to be a blue crayon so I made his costume from felt. I think it turned out pretty good and he loved it!

He wanted his sister to be a princess so I had someone form Etsy make a tutu for her. She looked adorable, of course! As happy and smiley as this baby is, I cannot get her to smile for the camera. Rotten girl!

Thoughts on Whole Living

I used to subscribe to body + soul magazine. My favorite part was the "ten thoughts on whole living" page at the very end. I've actually torn them out and kept them to refer back to. Here are a few of my favorites...

Sometimes picking your battles means letting go of a need to engage in them. (I'm embarrassed to say I've battled with loved ones over things that are just plain stupid. Why do I feel the need to argue about silly, trivial things?)

Walk a little, every day. (There have been days that I don't walk much...I spend a lot of time on the computer. On those days, my body seems to get stiff and achey. Movement, activity and exercise are *necessary*.)

A healthy life stems from better choices. (It's all about choices...and perspective...and attitude!)

Try not to let the lure of electronics strip away your ability to be here now. (I have a love/hate relationship with my computer and cell phone. You know how it is.)

Worth doesn't begin and end with a bank account. Appreciate you true abundance. ("A worthy woman who can find? For her price is far above rubies." Proverbs 31:10 ASV)
