solsc: today 27/31

March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!

todaygrandma was so helpful with the girls -- playing, reading, singing, crocheting and happy
want to be: slowing down time this week (it's Thursday already?) and taking more naps
blessings: for this time together with my parents and my girls -- i love when they can see on a daily basis why i love them so much
thinking: i'm accomplishing some on my list, but i am enjoying deep breaths and my time more
planning: the last couple days of spring break, including my birthday  
writing: the twenty-seventh day this month--27 stories, 27 moments captured, 27 wow
loving: the conversations and my parents hearing every day living with the girls  
grateful: for time with family, time for a break from the everyday routine, and time to rejuvenate

and today {again}: i treasure time with family


{This go-to easy-format quick-thinking in-the-moment writing idea is compliments to 

"It's a single print out of the busy cycle of life, a pause, a way to plan, 
and to remember to breathe in the midst of the everyday." 


  1. So much to be thankful for and enjoying every minute of every day. Time seems to go by so quickly when we spend time together, but we too are enjoying every minute of being with you and the girls. We love their chatter and antics, their facial and hand expressions, their abilities and trying to learn more. We love and embrace this time together. Love the slice format - simple, but meaningful. Love ya, Mom

  2. Love this simple yet so fulfilling post. I also love the format. Thanks for sharing. I may have to give this a try!

  3. Michelle,
    I always enjoy stopping by to see the little life moments you capture. What a wonderful story it weaves across days, weeks, and years. Love the way you structured and organized your writing. It is hard to believe we have been at this for 27 days. Enjoy the rest of the time with your family.


  4. Sounds like you are having a very special week. Happy early birthday. And one of the reasons I love reading everyone's slice posts is that I often find great writing ideas such as this. Thank you.
