The Good Life

Some days I get so caught up in our crazy, busy life and all the details. And on others I look around and feel like I cannot let another moment go by without mentally noting the amazing-ness of it all.
We have dogs barking, running everywhere. Dirty clothes laying on the floor in the laundry room. A fridge that has week old leftovers that need to be tossed out in it. 
Things will never be perfect, but each moment is. It's important to capture these moments, mentally, with our phone, camera, whatever. But they are passing quickly now and I feel that I need to value them more. So making more memories has been my goal for 2015, along with simplifying, and it's funny how those two things go so well together. When you aren't distracted by stuff, the people and moments sure become clearer.
