It’s taken me two years , but I’m finally accepting Florida for what it is. Funny, isn’t it, that along with the peaceful surrender and acceptance there comes a realization of so.much.beauty. (And yes, I am embarrassed to admit it took me this long. I’m a stubborn soul, and not proud of it.)
Aveline, on the other hand, knows nothing of this hesitation. She’s such an example to me. Aveline teaches me how life is meant to be lived: loudly, fearlessly, with an utterly joyful abandon. Like the birds of the air and the lilies of the field, she’s not worried about tomorrow.
She’s not worried about anything.
She’s a picture of who I want to be in this life: hands outstretched, head thrown back, full of pure unadulterated joy, eyes pointed up and heavenward, fearing nothing on this earth and giving all the glory to Jesus.
P.S. A big welcome and hello to new readers who found this blog via Aveline’s photo appearing in Disney Baby’s What Baby Wore! It’s an honor and I must say, this wee ol’ blog appearing alongside bloggers I so admire is a little crazy to me! Thank you Living on Love for including me.

WOW! How stunningly beautiful, what amazing colours!! And Aveline in soooo adorable! Yes, we have so much to learn from our kids!!
The colors were so vibrant. Usually I focus on how humid it is and how much I don’t like the feeling of being humid…haha…I’m glad I let go of that and opened my eyes!
Love the flamingos, of course! And–how much of a rip-off is it when we don’t enjoy something for fear of what others will think?
One time while in California traffic the woman in the car next to me was singing aloud at the top of her lungs. She was driving a CONVERTIBLE! I loved her! What freedom to cast off the shackles of other people’s opinions!
Great reminder, Gina!
Oh yes! The convertible lady. She’s an example to us all. I want to be like that!!
These photos are gorgeous and fun, I admired them on Instagram already!
And you know what’s crazy? Just yesterday my “he loves to read” illustration was on Disney Baby, what are the chances of that happening for both of us at the same time?! Very cool :)
I can’t resist Instagramming blog photos sometimes ;)
WOW….congratulations, that’s so neat! I just Googled and found it so I could leave a comment. Still laughing that we were both featured at the same time…I love it!
