wednesday sunshine

a beautiful day.
the sun's reflecting off that bit of white outside and is shining blindingly bright through these windows.
how thankful i am for windows!

so, i realize that the comment option isn't showing up. i can't figure it out!  what i think the problem may be is that i've messed with my blog template's HTML way too many times and probably obliterated the comment option altogether! i'll get it ironed out eventually (unless I feel like God's trying to tell me something, hmmmmm......) :) ***update: i'm SHOCKED but after i clicked publish on this post, i see that the place to comment is now up!  what?!  well, however it happened, WOO-HOO! and i can't wait to hear from y'all. :)

if you have an iphone, you should join in on the fun instagram photo a day challenge that i found over here on this blog......just clicking one pic a day according to the list....i jumped in on the action late......
day 1: morning me
day 2: breakfast
(which i had conveniently posted already the day before)
day 3: something i adore - the library!
and being the naughty rule-breaker that i am, i slipped in another thing i adore last night.....
curling up in bed at 8:15pm with a pile of books and my adorable, cozy hot water bottle.  LOL, i'm such a grandma.
(1. my husband was trying to watch a Michigan football game on his computer at the time; and 2. i know you'll want to know where i found that hot water bottle.....it was a gift so i can't help you out!  i've never in my life had one but, ohhhh, i love that thing!)

i pray your day is bright and beautiful,
Pin It


  1. Hello Megan !

    I am considering joining in the fun. we just moved in to a new country (Switzerland). It will be a nice challenge !

    Thank you for sharing your lovely pictures!


  2. Just waving hello. I like your reading list. :)

  3. I was wondering what that was I kept seeing on Instagram,, how fun! I might have to join in late too! And yay for comments! I have a hot water bottle I've had for years with a cute little knit cover...I never ever use it...you've inspired me to pull it out and give it a try!

  4. I'm so glad your comments are open! I'm a fairly new reader and it's fun to be able to say hello!

    (and for your husband - Hail to the victors! MGOBLUE!)

  5. i can't believe i can leave you a comment now. hooray!!
    off to check out the instagram a day dealio.

  6. Megan, so glad to connect with you! I may need some remedial help: I want to do the challenge, but am wondering if there's an official "sign up"? I clicked on the link and seemed to only see the thoughts of the original poster, not a sign up. Also, will I be contacted with the daily item, or do I have to print out that list and do it on my own?


  7. Yeah, I love receiving all of your words!!! Thanks, guys! Or I should say, girls!

    Jane, the instagram thing is just totally casual....no sign-up or anything. just something you do on your own. i just hashtag my photos with #instagramphotoaday or #janphotoaday.

  8. Can I just say that I am delighted that you have opened up the comments! I LOVE your blog and have been reading for quite awhile...I'm a lurker and a stalker ;-)
    I look forward to every post...the written word and your pictures. You are an inspiration...God Bless!
    p.s. I don't have a blog, but enjoy reading lots of them...your's is one of my very favourites!

  9. So glad you decided to open up comments!! I have a smart phone, but not an Iphone. It's a Samsung Galaxy SII. I wonder if they have a similar app to Instagram. I'll have to check that out! Love your blog, as you know!

  10. Am I dreaming or am I really leaving you a comment right now instead of having to email you? LOVE this, thank you!!!!!!!
    Hoping youre having a good day. And I wish I could curl up in bed RIGHT NOW with books and a hot water bottle warmer(yours is lovely) since I have a beastly headache and Im freezing!
    Its like 9 degrees here today and I cant shake the chill.

  11. I am glad to be able to leave a comment **shy smile** Hello and a wave; I have only begun reading your blog recently.


  12. ¡Hola, hola! :)

    So happy to be able to leave a comment!


  13. Hi Megan!
    I just wanted to say hello and tell you that I've been reading your blog for a while now and I'm so glad to be able to finally comment and let you know how encouraging it is to read of how other Mums do life. Your honesty is refreshing!

  14. Hi! I've been reading your blog for just a little while and recently started from the beginning and read all the way through! I really enjoyed all the photos and love how you've decorated your home.

    I'm fascinated with your yard. I think I read that you live in the suburbs? Yet your backyard looks like you live in the country. I'd love to see more photos of your backyard esp your veggie garden.

    Thanks for enabling comments and such a great blog!



you and your words are a GIFT to me! thank you!
