A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Family, projects and pine cones, oh my.....

A sweet weekend with family,
 followed by a project and
a little "Spring" in the air...

A few weeks ago Rick and I found this little piece at Good Will.
We thought a good sanding and a new finish
 would be just what it needs to bring it back to life.
 We have the perfect spot for it at the cabin.
It turned out lovely (Thanks to my DIY guy)

 Did I mention Spring....
My crocus's don't mind the snow (at the top of the photo), 
they are coming up anyway.

We had almost all the kids and grands here on Sunday, 
(Sadly we missed my sweet daughter who was working)
 Oh My Heart! 
we love these little ones so much = Blessed
They all love Uncle Gavin... he is the best!
Scarlett is so glad to be playing piano with Uncle Gavin.

 Today was the loveliest day, 
so warm and breezy, and more time with family...
 Mom and I had coffee together this morning while brainstorming the Easter menu.

  Carson was really wanting to come to our house today, 
so of course I said, "Come on over guys"
Brianna and Carson Picking pine-cones,
Carson is so sweet, it was his idea!

 Helping Grandpa carry the bucket of Pine cones.

I believe we had a record high today,
 last I saw it was 70 degrees. 
breezy and warm,  perfect conditions for dying clothes outside!

A good life is when you assume nothing,
 do more, need less,
 smile often, dream big, 
laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are.
 I am blessed!
