***Hello Monday is where I greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective. It’s a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for! Join me by leaving your own hellos in the comments section or linking up a hello monday post there!***

Things have been a little crazy lately. With David’s hospital stay last week, I felt like most of my brainpower was spent preparing–both metally and physically for that time. And it’s exhausting! He did great, was a trooper and now we’re back home getting into our regular rhythm again. When things are crazy, I try to slow down, simplify and cherish the small moments.

How about some hellos for a new week?
