Look what has flown into my shop as a new notecard!


Photo Friday- Relaxation

I adore this picture. Me on the bed, wanting a nap, and them staring longingly out the window at the pool below. Their faces so sad because they have to wait a whole 5 minutes for us to unpack a little.
Submitted Photo Friday for "Relaxation".
Hope you all have a relaxing weekend too...



Back to the real world...I have tons of photos to get through from the weekend, but these are the first I wanted to see. They turned out exactly as I hoped, something that rarely happens for me, and capture the essence of our sweet tropical days. I have added the first to my Etsy shop, and plan to add more throughout the week. Much thanks to our gracious hosts for such a lovely time.


8 years

Bits of spring a starting to show again around here...
I have just added this delphinium photograph to my shop.

For the rest of this week, I will be taking off to enjoy some time with family, as I am off to my mom's for the first time in eight years. Eight years. I can hardly believe it has been so long. But, enough time to move across the country and back again, get married, have 2 kids. It will be a much different trip from the last time I went with my girfriend, and we spent the week having drinks on the beach. But, I am looking forward to it just the same.



So much for spring...
a good day to stay in and make cookies. Yum!


Friday Loves

Hooray for Friday! After a week of being at home, the kids and I are ready for a day away. So, we are off to meet our dear friends. N.J. is so excited to see her "best friend" again, who she hasn't seen since December. Listening in on their little 4 year old girl conversations will be my favorite part of the day.

I will leave you with some sweet favorites from flickr.

Don't you wish you were here. Or, here. And this has me totally amazed by its beauty!

Smile the weekend is here!


The little blackbirds came to visit again, they seem to like our yard on the cold, grey days.
I've added them to my shop. Happy Thursday!


Rare Bird

A big thank you, thank you, thank you! to Rare Bird Finds for featuring my photograph today!


Ranunculus Love

While I generally love all flowers, few are as stunning as the ranunculus. So tightly wrapped, layer upon layer, only becoming more beautiful as they gently unfold. I have added these three to my shop as one listing for you to pick the one you like best. I just can't decide!


Is it over already. What a busy, fun, quick weekend!
Thank you to everyone who made my birthday so special.
