Embracing Real Moments in 2014

When I looked back at last night's Real Moments, I realized what I'm looking forward to most in 2014.

I don't want 2014 to pass me by in a blur as I rush from activity to activity or try to complete everything I've written down on my latest to-do list.

I want to slow down and embrace the real moments of our lives.

Bike rides:

Board games:


Choir concerts:

Fast food for dinner:

Reading time:

Afternoons at the pool:

Baking cookies:

Running with the girls:

Messy craft projects:

Piano music:

And hopefully a few slushy days:

I'll still be looking for beautiful moments in 2014 (see my "I searched for beauty" thoughts). I hope to widen my vision and embrace all the little moments too.

Yesterday some of my blogging friends were sharing about "Remembering the Real 2013." Today (or perhaps early tomorrow morning) we're sharing about how we are "Looking Forward to the Real 2014."

  1. Love this---it's the little moments that fill up our lives, really. When we miss them, the day-to-day seems pretty empty. Here's to cherishing the little things!

  2. Great post, and I love how the pictures just about speak for themselves. Thank you for sharing yourself with us! It's great to get to know new friends. :) Thanks for linking up with Christian Fellowship Friday! Be blessed!
