Dreams are made of this...

picture taken with phone
There are just moments in our days.
Today was one of them.
Son was in the kitchen voluntarily.
Helping, without being asked.
Husband was thankful son started the charcoal.
The steaks were perfect.
The harmony was perfect.
I was happy. 
To the core. 
Happy.
It was only 81 degrees outside.
We sat outside.
Life is good.
Praise God.

BEAUTIFUL photo, Marlis!! It looks like you captured the blue hour...with your phone, Wow! Glad you had such a perfect evening. Your temps. were cooler than ours here in NC; it's been miserable here today. :(

I hope the rest of your week is just as nice!

Some strange goings on tonight, Marlis. I can only read comments if I am posting a comment. But I like the new format. Lovely photo and sounds like a wonderful evening. It is cooler here as well. xo

The funny thing is...you just can't plan moments like that...can you. In our family, we call those "Walton's Moments" ;) Have a great week, my friend.


We are having a beautiful giveaway... hope you can visit and enter.

A son voluntarily in the kitchen would put a smile on my face :-) Glad you had special moments and nice weather with your family.
