beauty in the mundane.

  1. I can see you notice beauty in the little things of everyday life. Such a lovely way to live. These are nice pictures, Sherry. Sometimes the ho-hum days are the best days.

  2. I agree. I love bubbles. So tiny {well, not always tiny} & fragile yet they wear all the colors of God's rainbow. Washing dishes is actually one of my favorite household jobs. Hot water, good smelling soap, & pretty dishes that you get to thoroughly inspect & admire...

    2. We just got the Mrs. Meyers basil scented dish soap! I've heard rave reviews of its grease cutting capabilities. ^_^ Yay! I'm so glad you got it & {hopefully} like it!

  4. Choosing to see beauty is important. God's good gifts around us, that we can miss if we are not purposely looking for them.

    You are loved.

    1. we can become so distracted by the world - life, stresses, busyness, chores .. that we forget to slow down and take in the beauty set before us.

  5. Of course, I have always instilled in my daughter to see the beauty in the most littlest of unnoticed.

    This is a post of notice, nothing short of being Mun-Dane!

  6. I have learned that often the most beautiful IS found in the mundane. Oh, if those suds are made with Mrs. Meyer's dish soap then the mundane smells good, too.
