Sunday Snapshot: a lazy afternoon

We’ve been doing a lot of that.


Being lazy, that is.


After moving 8 times in 15 years…


Adopting 7 times in 8 years…


We finally feel like we’re slowing down. Settling in.

Putting down roots.


And, oh-my-goodness, am I happy about that.


I think it would be safe to say, we all are.

So good to feel like we’re home.

When you’re ready to play along, be sure to visit here for the full scoop.

  1. What a beautiful post : )
    So thankful you are feeling at home and blessed.
    Love, love, LOVE seeing your babies playing in the creek.
    What could be more fun than that on a hot summer day?
    I can’t think of a thing.

  2. Glad you are feeling settled. I agree. moving every two to three years is *hard*.

    Glad y’all are enjoying the creek!

  3. Stefanie-It sounds (and looks) just wonderful! What a feeling after so many years.
    ps- my fave pic is the one with all the shoes in the foreground! LUV the story.

  4. This looks like so much fun!! How amazing to have this in your backyard!

  5. Awwww, what a great feeling!
    Putting down roots and feeling like your home!!

    Love it!

  6. One move in 10 years was enough for me — you deserve a medal. :)

  7. There’s no place like home

  8. Great shots – love the one with all the shoes!

  9. I think this is my favorite post of yours ever! Great shots! So happy your home.

  10. Hi Stefanie – Gorgeous shots (as usual). Just wondering if you checked into the water quality in the creek. You probably have, but makes me nervous if you haven’t. What I work with routinely so it’s what immediately pops into my head… Adore your kiddos and want only good things for them!!! :)

  11. What a wonderful post about a wonderful day!

  12. It’s a great feeling isn’t it?! Yep, those kiddo’s of yours look like they’re right at home and enjoying it thoroughly. Love it. I used to play in creeks all of the time as a kid. Have a great Sunday.

    Gin =)

  13. Children playing in the creek is what childhood is all about!

  14. I love that this is your new home! It is beautiful!

  15. I think I might know this creek…wink, wink. I heard you all had moved to our neck of the woods and have been keeping my eye out for you around town. If I am right about the creek, you are a little west of us. We usually do the fireworks near the depot on the 4th. They are always good and it’s fun to play in the creek while you wait :-)
    Welcome home!

  16. Omigosh, the first thing I thought of when I looked at this pictures was “Wow, how incredibly beautiful, what a special place to call home!” It looks so ideal, so calm and serene.

    But then soon enough this city gal’s instincts kicked in and I thought “Goodness, is it safe for them to be splashing around in that water, lord knows what animal just peed upstream!”

    My husband makes fun of what a city girl I am, I won’t even drink out of a garden hose, you just never know what’s crawled into it!


  17. Wow. So wonderful!!!!
