Mr. Bentley figured out how to turn the handset to the hose to quench his thirst. Now if I could just teach him to wash windows!

Week 8/52


My new adventure in my Esty shop. I'm featuring silk flower pins and hair clips. I love them and wear them often. It's my new statement piece and get compliments all the time.

After such a long winter, we all need a little pretty to cheer our chilly spirits!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. One day {hopefully soon} this will all evolve into the kitchen I've been envisioning.
Week ~ 6/52


Just like Starbucks with an added rustic touch!

The kitchen remodel is coming along. Thank goodness we aren't without the essentials during the process :)

There is no greater gift than love!

Roses from my sweet son on Valentine's Day. They brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart.

A little romance ... roses and candle light.

Week ~ 3/52


Dear Mother Nature,

We appreciate your beauty in it's ever growing bounty. It truly is picture perfect and has lent itself to some {too many} unexpected days of enjoyment out of the classroom. However, I regret to inform you that we are drowning in snow. Perhaps you'd like to share some of this winter wonderland with a few other areas.

Week ~ 2/52


There is just something so quaint and inviting about the outdoor entrance at the Inn we stayed at in Vermont. The "door" reminds me of a horse barn.  There was greenery hanging in most places we visited in the sweet little town. It wasn't Christmasy at all, just a nice splash of green against the back drop of white.

A gift to myself one afternoon with the reminder to slow down and enjoy the simple beauty in life.
