Iced Tea!


The daffodils in the front bulb garden


Like packing a picnic

and going for a hike in the woods

after reading these sweet nature walk books…


more and more what’s important to hold on to

and what’s healthy to let go of.

    Ohhhh I love Harry Connick Jr and Shirley Temple!!! I agree on what’s healthy to let go of. I’ve been working on that too. I tend to let go of too much actually, which pisses people off when they think it’s a big deal & I blow it off as something”little. Finding that healthy medium for everyone is always an adventure!

      Yes, I agree. sometimes it’s obvious what it would healthy to let go of…and sometimes it’s harder to get that balance. We’re all on a journey 😉 Thanks for the comment sweet girl.

    My Grandma just taught me how to embroider last Tuesday. She has made I don’t know how many sets of towels since being diagnosed with lung cancer November 2010.
    I’m in the process of making days of the week dish towels and I love it!

      It’s a fun craft. I’m really into redwork (where you work the entire design in red.) 😉
