Magic is...

family dinners crammed into our busy schedules

shouts of the neighborhood boys enjoying this "summer preview" weather, even though it is way past bedtimes

late nights, followed by getting into bed with the warmth of a sleeping sibling on the sheets

having the sun as an alarm clock...peeking under the curtains with the warmth of a new day

quiet early mornings after good sleep

a smile from across the lunchroom

overcoming a tough week, followed by a weekend of pancakes, sunshine, and green grass

coming home after a long trip, the smell of home as you open the door

building sandcastles, sandy fingernails, and digging for seashells with the late day's sun on your arms


  1. What a lovely post. So many things in it bring back my childhood.

  2. It sounds like you had a lovely get away, SuzyQ

    "coming home after a long trip, the smell of home as you open the door" ..I just love this!

  3. Ah, I can tell the change of weather has put a spring in your step and your heart.

    My 7 year old son peaks under the curtains to check for the sun. :)

  4. things we so often take for granted ... so glad you can see the treasure in them

  5. yes ..there is magic in stepping inside ...home

  6. life is grand.
    quiet mornings are my fav.

    one love.

  7. Great one! Life is life.. :)

  8. Yehaaa pure magic, moments like these. Great to cherish them and share them with us. Many thanks.
    It's been to long since I've visited but I'm back in the saddle again. Hugs Dagmar

  9. pancakes, sunshine and green grass. perfect weekend ingredients.

  10. Oh, I like your brand of magic. A lot. Especially the family dinners and sand castles. I've been slacking in my bloggish neighborliness as school has been more than hectic. Now that I'm back in the swing again, I wanted to stop in and say hello. Happy spring!
