holding the little things

lake champlain at shelburne farms,

"You did not have to understand miracles to believe in them, and in fact Mabel had come to suspect the opposite. To believe, perhaps you had to cease looking for explanations and instead hold the little things in your hands as long as you were able before it slipped like water between your fingers."

-Eowyn Ivey, The Snow Child


  1. Your banner, these photos, that quote - all beautiful and uplifting! Thank you, Karen! xo

  2. This thought, these images, thank you, Karen. A scent of grace is on the air.

  3. Gorgeous photos, Karen. My mother-in-law just recommended Snow Child to me; seeing the quote encourages me to read it.
