Simple things Sunday Photo Link Party No. 114

Welcome to Simple things Sunday you guys! I can't wait to see what photos you share this week! If you're new to the STS fun, scroll down for all the details and jump right in....we're excited to have you!

Just in case you missed it, check out Elisha Snow's guest post yesterday with some great tips 
on getting sharper photos! 

Now onto this weeks party...


I haven't gotten the big camera out much this week because we've had some sick kids around here. I'll be so happy to say goodbye to the sickies, but I'll admit, I did enjoy the extra snuggles while they lasted. This image is such terrible quality, but I had to have my oldest daughter snap a quick photo of this moment. I can't remember the last time Alivia fell asleep like this. She turned three this past week and I've been pretty emotional about my baby growing up on me....which made this moment just that much sweeter.

Now it's your turn. What simple things are you celebrating this week?

If you're new to Simple as That I'd love for you join us in this weekly tradition. Scroll down to the bottom of this post where you can find all the details on how to share your photos with us.  We'll be taking a short break from our simple things special guest series while our friends in the US celebrate thanksgiving.


Don't forget you can share your simple things photos via instagram! Simply post an insta-pic of a simple thing/moment using hashtag  #thesimplethings and be sure to tag me @rebecca_simpleasthat so I can check out your photos! *This is new:  Each week I'll be highlighting four of your simple things photos posted via Instagram in my instagram feed. I can't wait to feature you on instagram!

Just a few quick rules to play:

1. Grab a button and include it in your simple things post.

2. Link back directly to your simple things post not your blog/website.
No links to other linky parties, giveaways or craft projects pretty please. 
This linky is all about the photos.

3. Be sure to pop by and visit at least 3 other links and leave a comment.
Leave as many as you can.

  1. I never like it when my littles are sick..except for all the extra snuggling time. Hope she's on the mend. Thank you for hosting this. I'm looking forward to participating. Nice to meet you!

  2. Awww, I hope everyone feels better soon!

  3. My son is sick too now. So boring!!

    That photo is very sweet!! <3

  4. Such a sweet photo! I remember the feeling ~ a sort of sadness and bluish feeling ~ when our older son started at school and our younger son were about to start at the kindergarten a month later, it felt like they'd grown older overnight ... Their world and circumstances were getting bigger! Mom's heart contains so much love and emotions - soft and tough love, but it's such a blessing ... once a mom, always a mom!

  5. I'm with you. I hate the sickies, but I do LOVE the cuddles they elicit! I hope everyone is feeling better in your home.

  6. Sorry to hear about the sickness, love the snuggle photo though.

  7. Oh my- I feel for you & for her. It's so tough when they are sick. Hugs!!!

  8. Is there anything sweeter than a child peacefully sleeping in her mother's arms? I love this. And it takes me back to years long ago when my own child slept it my arms. Thanks for sharing this lovely image.

  9. Hi Rebecca. Really sorry for your sickies - hope they will get well soon. This is my very first time I take part in the simple things sunday linkparty. I really like the idea and let me say, your blog is by far my favourite one. I'm reading through all your travel, crafting and photography posts at the moment and I adore your beautiful pictures!
    My post for the linkparty is written in german, I hope that's okay, I have a translator available right underneath my header image :)!

    Greetings from Germany and all the best for the upcoming week and your lovely but sick kids :)

    Laureen ♥

    I know how you feel. My baby is growing up waaaay to fast for me too. She'll be three this summer. ;(

    Thanks for the linky. Hope you have a great week!

  14. It's never fun having sick kiddies, but all the snuggles are soooo nice!!! I love that time when they just want to be close to you because you're the one that can make them feel's just so sweet and special!...especially when like you said they grow up so fast!! Hope everyone is feeling better :)

  15. I hate it when my babies are under the weather. =( Sweet picture though. I am looking forward to taking part in Simple Things for this year. Thanks for hosting it.
