I stop for aqua

If there was ever a color that caught my eye it is probably aqua~so soothing, calm, pretty! And if I spy something aqua I will be drawn to it and want to photograph it, buy it, try it on, eat it, drink it!

everything old is new again...

A trip to one of the local flea markets always reveals some object that takes me back to my childhood or my mom or grandmother's kitchen. It's always fun when you have something you're searching for; we scoured this market before Emily's wedding on the hunt for glass vases for her reception. Vintage is big these days and ways to make old things usable again is a fun & creative challenge. A peek at what was at the flea market last weekend~

just in time for valentine's day!
very true words

Happy Birthday Finn!

To our sweet nephew & cousin Finn~A Very Happy 3rd Birthday!
Two was all about firetrucks, little cars, a new puppy, no more dipeys (diapers), being an awesome hiker (in your words), gymnastics, and an affinity for jammies, anything sweet,  and pretending to be a dog. Have a fun day!


We love you Finn!!!

Our Holiday

We had a wonderful Christmas together the six of us and the three doggies- time to be together, relax by the fire, count our blessings, play games and eat delicious food! We were hoping for a white Christmas, but didn't see a flake. It was however very gray and COLD which made it that more cozy.

dreamt of a White Christmas, but woke up to freezing rain...

Christmas morning


fresh-squezed orange juice with champagne from our oranges in our stockings along with Dad's famous Eggs Benedict- YUMMO!!


A couple days later we drove to St. Louis to celebrate with family where we got to...

play with this cute boy, Finn,

give sweet Ellie lots of hugs,

 spend time with 'the girls',

 and have an impromptu snowball fight at Ali & Lupo's!

It was a beautiful Christmas with family!
