{this moment} - and the weekly {Smile-Up}

. . . . . . . . . . 
"There are no ordinary moments." ~Way of the Peaceful Warrior

{this moment} - a Friday ritual. A photo (or few) capturing moments from the week. Simple, special, extraordinary moments. Moments I want to pause, savor and remember.
Served up with the weekly {Smile-Up} - gratitude practices to love and appreciate your life. 

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' and 'smile up' in the comments for all to find and see.

Having our own beach -- having the most amazing landlords who Want us to use their beach! ^_^ 
Fun new hikes!
Catan game night on our patio with friends!  
Tea dates with awesome people!

The Dominion--still my favourite coffee shop in Nelson!   
Dancing around while baking cookies.  
Drawing, writing, creating. 
How much love and companionship my kitties give me--they are absolutely my babies.
Getting to eat fresh veggies out of our garden every single day! 
Harvesting our frist zucchini! 
First swim of the year in our beautiful lake! 
Being a dork. haha.
Being so fortunate to live where I live; in the mountains, having our own home, getting to watch nature all around us!
Watching the two bald eagles, and the two ospreys, that live in our area.
Family get togethers. 
Family visiting me at the markets. 
Friends helping me at the market and then meeting for tea with more after ^_^

Interests for the week:

Lessons of the week: 
The people that are meant to be in your life will always be there and those that aren't will be removed by the Universe. Talk, talk, talk through your problems, communicate or you'll never learn and grow and have realizations! Everyone is going through something so be understanding and forgiving. You are what you eat; so don't eat crappy foods! When you stop worrying about things then you finally receive what you want and everything is much easier, so try to be as happy as possible; that is where your attention needs to be to receive good things in your life!  

Hope you're all having a beautiful wonderful blissful week! Tell me about your lovely weeks! Tell me about your 'Smile Up' and 'this moment!' Pretty please? :)
