little yellow tree

Every fall I watch and wait as the leaves start turning colors...and, finally, my favorite little yellow tree produces the largest, most beautiful yellow leaves. 
It is in the front yard and visible from the kitchen, dining room and living rooms.  Its leaves make a beautiful backdrop for pictures. (Exactly the reason why it's featured for today's "Mommy & Me" photo).  And, it's not very big yet, so there aren't so many leaves to rake once they all fall to the ground. 
I love my little yellow tree.

  1. These photos are just beautiful!

    I love the leaves too.

    Beautiful family.

  2. Great photos! It's really been a nice fall hasn't it? That tree is not that big to produce so many leaves. Imagine when it matures how much raking you will need to do. Or ahem... those boys will need to do :-)

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
