the sweet sound of laughter

the sweet sound of laughter

“There are lives I can imagine without children but none of them have the same laughter and noise.”

-Brian Andreas, Storypeople

Blink blink. It’s Monday again, isn’t it? So much has happened in a week it’s as if I’ve come full circle. I guess in a sense I have, quite literally. Kate painted a perfect picture of the weekend at BlogHer. As always her insights are pure poetry.

There was love, sisterhood and the joyful noise of side-splitting laughter. But a whole different orchestra plays here back at home. Still sorting out thoughts and photos from Chicago, I pulled these images as My Best Shots today. Getting home to my girls is the sweetest music of all.

Share your Best and sweetest Shots today.

    So glad you enjoyed BlogHer. I am so there next year! I always find that absence makes the heart grow fonder, as they say.

    Here is my best shot from last week. A little visitor from our neighbor’s garden!

    So glad you had a lovely time at BlogHer. I too hope to be "so there" next year!

    I’m getting ready to move away from So Cal, so trying to soak up all that last summertime joy. This one can also be found in my flickr pool, but sadly no SOOC this weekend to post it to.

    Yay for a warm reunion with your gorgeous daughters. My boy just learned to make a new sweet sound – he can’t take more than five steps without taking a whistle break.

    Gorgeous! I can’t help but smile when I see these images!

    One of my sweetest momentswas watching my son discover his first pet fish…and falling in love with my husband all over again as I watched him savor the experience of unveiling the surprise!

    Love those images! laughter is the best – it has been a god send here through stressful decisions lately. And Harrison’s personality gives me plenty of material for my best shot!

    Welcome home.

    Playing "Mr. Shy-guy" made my life a little-extra-special-sweet today. My life is complete! haha!

    Glad you made it home in good shape. Someday I’d love to come meet you all!

    Have no enough money to buy a car? You not have to worry, just because this is real to receive the personal loans to resolve such problems. So take a financial loan to buy everything you want.
