Days Like These

The weather was beautiful on Saturday. 
The sun was brighter, the breeze was warmer, the grass was greener, than it has been in a long time. 

A few of our friends came over and my grandpa came to visit us. It was one of the best days so far this spring (although I think spring starts on the twentieth or something). We walked to our old neighborhood where there was a small creek. I remember going there all the time when I was little (it's also the same street where I fell into a ditch when I was riding my bike ;)). 
My sister (who is quite the daredevil) waded in the freezing cold creek. One of our friends did the same. While my other friend and I (being the eldest siblings in our families) gave them both disproving looks, telling them to be very careful and asked them how in the world they could stand that cold water one too many times. 
After a while we headed back home to eat pizza and other food that wasn't at all good for us (just the way I like it;)) and my friends and I watched Mako Mermaids (it's cheesy yet strangely addicting). 

Last Saturday was one of those days where life seems a bit sweeter than usual, and time seems to tick slower for a change, letting us all just breathe it in. Just breathe in a beautiful day.
Sure, there will always be those stressful days. Those hard days where every little thing seems to go wrong. But God still gives us good days, sweet, gorgeous days. Days when He shows us the beauty in simplicity, nature, and camaraderie.
And I truly treasure days like these. <3

By the way,
How are you all?

  1. Sounds like you had a great time! My day has been quite well; first official day of track practice. Since I'm actually practicing with more people that I know, I'm much comfortable around them. I'm also trying hard to faint in my Ancient Civs class (my teacher is eyeing me because my language arts teacher has said RAVING things about me-- good things-- but I get terrified out of my wits).

    xoxo Morning

  6. What I find so interesting about this post is that immediately I could tell that you're from America - I think it's the houses in the first image but also the colour palate. I don't know how I picked up on those things, but I did!

    These are such beautiful photos and amazing memories! Springtime is my second-favourite time of the year just after Autumn! :)
