Swing Time

swing time birthday

Yesterday for my bday, I got to do a lot of my favorite things -- which included swinging in my front yard. David & our buddy Doug built it for me last summer & it has made my love for wooden plank swings grow exponentially. There is something so whimsical & inviting about them. When you swing, it's as if you have no age & life takes a little pause.

    there's definitely something special about the little things in life, such as swinging from swings. it's as if all your adulthood worries don't matter anymore--even if it's just for that short while.

    have a lovely week!

  16. I love this. What a simple and gorgeous post! I am jealous you have a swing of your very own. I love the swing with the flowers lining the rope. How whimsical indeed.
