I Don't Know Why...

My late father used to sing a song to my mom called "I Don't Know Why (I Just Do)" as sung by Tommy Dorsey (or perhaps it was the Frank Sinatra rendition - I can only speculate because Daddy liked listening to them both).

At any rate, I have a lot of pictures like that... I like/love them, and I don't know why. I just do!

This one, in particular, I took on a rather cold and rainy day. We stayed inside, and my husband built a fire. The atmosphere was cozy and relaxed as we read, sipped coffee, put a puzzle together and listened as the kids bickered, played, bickered, played, bickered and played and then asked to be fed. Again.

In this photo, time ticked by S-L-O-W-L-Y, the fire crackled and warmed, and the world map candles alluded to the fact that out of all the places in the world, I was right where I wanted to be. Well, Paris wouldn't have been too bad either. ;)

As the Dos Equis guy may have said, had he been out in all the snow this week...

Stay toasty, my friends!

Linking up with Little Things Thursday

    1. Thank you, Mascha! I love the cozy times. I could sit here and just be a blob all day. But, alas... the children call for me to go take some COLD, SNOWY photos! Brrrrrr... :)

  3. Ah...so lovely! I love everything about a cozy home stirring up memories! Lovely image!

  4. Thanks, Kim! Makes me want to build a fire right now! ;) BRRRR.

  5. Sometimes, you don't really need a reason! The candles are quite unique. It's so good to be where you know God wants you to be!
