In The Details

I love the details.

It is the details in life that I love and it is in the details that I believe you find the true beauty.

Not perfection…details.

The dimples on my son's cheeks.

The sound of my husband's breathing next to me at night.

How Benjamin's breath still smells sweet.

How Madolyn talks faster when she has a really good idea.

The details. 


Walking through the chateau it was the DETAILS that drew me in.


Enjoy this tiny glimpse into the details that Lizzie has created ….in her world in the south of France.

    Oh, how lovely, Jeanne! Thank you for inspiring me today. I’ve been feeling bogged down by my to-do list….rather than simply facing each little task at hand. I hope that you are having a beautiful week!

    Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful images and your perspective on your time in France. Such a fascinating visit! You’re right, it’s always the details, the little things, not the “big” things that make the most impact.

    you are so right. the details are amazing. no matter how little. love the doorknob.
    i saw paiges request and your answer for a camera bag. yeah!!!! i mentioned that to tracey a while ago. do you need a photographer to test it out?
    have a great weekend.

    It is so true that so many special things are overlooked in the little details of life if we don’t stop and take the time to really SEE.
    You’ve captured the beautiful details so well. I can SEE it through your EYES here and throughout your blog life. Thanks for the reminder to enjoy every moment and sight.
    If I were a photographer I too would love taking unusual and unnoticed things that others forget to stop and see the beauty in.
    Loved looking through your eyes today!
