A Lovely Mess

This is the perfect description to me of my yard... and my house, my life in general, in fact! Point is, despite it's imperfections, I love it. I feel so grateful for it, mess and all. Remembering to engage in the beauty of the present moment brings me so much joy. This evening, I was in the mood to take pictures and so I wandered about the yard, taking photos until the kids got home from pizza with Daddy. Instead of looking at the garden as a series of tasks yet to be completed, I saw the loveliness.
