The Serenity Circle | a monthly collaborative of zen

If I were to tell you I had any serenity in the last month, it would be a blantant lie. We’ve been neck deep in remodeling, now currently without a functional kitchen sink. My teenagers are fighting like cats and dogs, and enough with the nipple twisting, my God! We finally had it. We had to play hooky from life. We ventured to the coast. It wasn’t exactly a serene trip, it never is when we shove 8 people in a car. But, since you can’t hear the noise, the bickering, and the constant threat of vomit. I bring you some serene photos.



The Serenity Circle is a collaborative blog project sharing our serene photographs with you each month. Please continue on the journey and visit the next blog to complete the circle.

    maibritt - LOL! on the lack of serenity on roadtrips… I have 4 kids, so I can relate… I think, when you have more than 2 kids, you get your own version of serenity though… ;o)
    The images are so beautiful! Way to find peace and quiet in the midst of chaos.
    I LOVE the second to last image!!! WOW!ReplyCancel
