lovely monday.

February 22nd | thoughts


today i’m going to get some really lovely coffee. {the camp coffee wasn’t my favorite, but it did the job.}

i’m going to notice all the blossoms popping up and get excited for spring.



i’m going to be thankful that we are starting out the week in our normal routine.

that david doesn’t have any doctor appointments this week.  yay!



i’m going to set a date for a haircut.  my hair has gotten so long.

i’ve been pulling it back a lot-which is fun.

but i am ready for a freshen up!




i’m going to wear my ‘key to my heart‘ necklace

and touch it all day long

and think about how abundantly blessed i am.

{that necklace is on sale today and tomorrow}

find it here.

feelin lucky? giveaway here.

    Big snow last night, no school today, being cozy at home, baking muffins and cookies and wearing jammies all day. I’m forever touching my LL necklace as well, so comforting.

    This list is making my Monday lovely…the idea of intentions simple enough to follow through. I’m off to write down my own intentions for the week.

  6. Life is beautiful! Have a wonderful week Lisa! xoxo

    waking up early to chase after a sunrise that never came and letting the rest of the day unfold

  9. I am with you, normal routine.
    And the outlook for a less busy week ahead of me!
    ….and a handful of leftover candy hearts.

    Great list.

    What is making my Monday? Hmmmm….I’m having a brand new engine installed into my truck and it’s costing less than my husband and I anticipated. That is always a good thing!

    Lovely Monday…
    It’s 9:25 and we’ve finished our homeschooling for the day, including practicing piano.
    Only one whining incident which was resolved quickly.
    The sitter’s coming over at 11:00, so I’ll hit the gym & do a little grocery shopping.
    Dentist appointments for the girls at 2:00.
    Making dinner and staying at home tonight.
    Doing each of these things without rushing. Being intentional to be present in each moment.

    Your pics are beautiful! Glad that you are getting into your normal routine!

    And your hair looks beautiful!!

    I would llove to win the $75 certificate and get the “from up here” necklace. Too cute.

  14. Bonnie says:

    Glad to hear you are free of doc visits for the week. :)

    I truly have had a lovely day. Meet up with some great girlfriends and we all went hiking with our pups. Then we had lunch at a little cafe and just chatted the afternoon away.

    Great way to start the week.

    Sending you smiles!

    I really love your photography, it has a serenity about it that is so soothing to me, no matter what is happening in my day! Thank you so much… It’s Tuesday morning here in New Zealand and what made my Monday was going to my very first Zumba dance exercise class – I have arthritic hips very young but am determined to do my best to do all the moves! Was such fun and a great way to start the week, laughing! Later the same day I kayaked in the surf at a gorgeous beach 5 minutes drive from home and body boarded on very small waves (still fun though). All in all, a great day!

    What gorgeous photos again! I had a Drs appointment for one of my twins – the car park was absolutely packed with cars waiting to get a space. I prayed out loud, in faith, in front of my 5 year olds, and after a car got in our way and made us a little behind the queue of other cars, a space suddenly appeared just in front of us (as a car unexpectedly pulled out), right in front of the hospital entrance. It was astounding!

    Hope you have a wonderful Monday Lisa! Fantastic that this week is Dr free:) Our littlest one started daycare this morning, so my Monday isn’t feeling very lovely right now ~ more a little sad and lonely with out my little sweetie. But your gorgeous photos and post has made me smile ~ Thank you! ~ Tina x

  18. Tiffany says:

    Gosh I love your photos!

    My Monday is lovely because I had such a relaxing yet productive weekend! I enjoyed my sweet family, had some alone time and recharged. Was truly lovely!

    i so want the key necklace!!!


  19. Tiffany says:

    And forgot to comment – I love pink too!!! (saw your tweet about pink)

    And I will have a cup of coffee and the beignets! So good! Have you had the mickey mouse beignets at Cafe Orleans at Disneyland?? Such a fun treat!

    Ok, back to work – have a great week!

    Having enough time today to finish my to-do list (with left over time!)

  23. Stephanie says:

    Just discovered you from ASPTL and I cannot believe I haven’t ever seen your site before- I AM IN LOVE!!! Your site is beautiful and I am a new fan! I would love to feature you on my site! Let me know if you’re interested!

  24. hannah m says:

    I spy with my little eye the Big Sky chalkboard! The thought of their most amazing bread pudding makes my Monday night happy (and a little wistful!).

  25. jenny says:

    I love a really strong cup of french roast coffee on monday mornings…I also enjoy the hope and possibilities of a new week. I am new to your site and I love all the jewelry you design…the key necklace would make a great start to my collection :)

  26. Maggie says:

    I really loved having my new Lisa Leonard necklace delivered today!!

    Today Dan and I took a walk. We went to a Mexican restaurant just a few blocks away. It was good and I’m glad it’s close by so we can walk. Wish we had some other things a little closer that we could walk to, but we do have some cute little shops I could browse through. The walk actually got me a little more motivated to do more walking…or maybe I’ll get my 1967 bicycle tuned up and try riding that, if my knees will let me.

    As always, I love the pictures you posted. It’s good to see David smiling and not having to go to the doctor at this time. And you look beautiful as ever. Give hugs to Steve for me.

  28. Kathy says:

    My mother is in the hospital and had a couple of procedures on Monday. God brought her through the procedures, and she is feeling much better. We have a lovely and loving God!

  29. Dani says:

    I simply LOVE your photography! It lifts me up everyday :) Thank you so much for sharing such a talent!

I have a little guy with medical challenges… and one day I will post his story… first I need to grow my writing and blog savvy skills! (only 1 and 1/2 months running!) I need to go find that Blog magazine with your story!! =) Looking forward to following your journey and being blessed by your words & photography!! =)
    Blessings!! Just Jenn~
