I am thankful for piles of Legos scattered about the floor; I step on the Lego castle in the middle of the night; I scream silently in agony, and I give thanks because these bits of plastic are evidence of hours of imagination and delight.
And because it is so much fun, I am also thankful for a new vintage turquoise hat purchased today at La Donna Zabella Boutique, a super cute consignment store in downtown South Paris (Maine) for only $5.00. I have been looking for the perfect summer hat, and this is it. Thanks to the assistance of my wonderful photographers (Kaylynn and Kalli) I have photos too!
This one taken by my darling 5 year old.
This one by my 9 year old, and yes that is a bug on the top of the hat.
And I captured this one later as the little ones enjoyed the new hat.

It is easier to live through the ugly when we look for the beauty.
