{Taking a moment to stop & smell the roses}

(idiomatic) To relax; to take time out of one's busy schedule to enjoy or appreciate the beauty of life.

Slow down. Stop and smell the roses now and then.

I think it is so important to just take a moment and remember the little things that you are thankful for, especially in the midst of a crazy day {or week}. I would like to make it one of our goals for the rest of the year, to remember what we are thankful for throughout the day. Even the simplest of things. I've noticed that William & I stress a lot about things we cannot fix or change & that stops today.
Today we are thankful for the love of Irwin. Our puppy Irwin Brings us lots of joy & smiles in busy & crazy times. He is always there to love us & cuddle.. {Maybe its just because we feed him?} None the less, we are thankful for him, even though he is a goof ball :)
{Smelling the roses in our back yard..}

{...eating the roses in our backyard.. oh boy} 

We love him! & we are excited for him to meet the newest little johnston soon. :) A little less then 7 months left! What are you thankful for today?
