    • a free spirit life February 28, 2014 1:26 PM #

      Hi Rosemarie,

    I love my journey with all of its hills and valleys. I love yoga with and without my kiddos. I love to watch the sunrise with a cup of tea.

    • a free spirit life February 28, 2014 1:27 PM #

      Hi Tyson,
      Oh yes…yoga is on the top of my list, too, and most of the time these days it is shared with my children. I even take the baby with me to mommy/baby yoga. :) Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

    I love everything from the simplest of things to the amazingly beautiful miracles in life. I love my daughter and the way she depends on me to love her, care for her, and guide her. I love watching her learn and grow as she is only 16 months. I love my husband and our deep connection, and most of all how much he loves our daughter. I love a nice walk on the beach just the three of us. There is nothing better than enjoying each other’s company while we laugh and play in the beautiful warm sunlight. Those are the best days. I love being happy because I am grateful for what I have. We may not be the wealthiest family, we may not be able to take an extravagant vacation every year, or drive fancy cars, but we do have so many wonderful things and we are blessed. Because of all this, I love life.

      What a joy to read what you “love.” Sounds like you have many “riches” in your life – what gifts! Thank you for sharing some of your beautiful blessings with us.

    • a free spirit life February 28, 2014 1:29 PM #

      Hi Emma!
      Thanks for stopping by. Parenting is an adventure for sure. And so is this self-discovery journey. Be well and big hugs.

    not sure if this is closed but I love everything about life. I especially am enjoying spring, today we have lots of rain, which is unusual here in Utah.

      Hi Nina!
      Great to see you here. Thanks for stopping by. We are anticipating one more snow storm and then maybe…just maybe…we’ll start to see signs of spring? Enjoy and stay warm.
