Rain :)

Is it bad that I am glad it is raining? I love sunshine so much!! What is wrong with me?  Well, I am happy to maybe get a chance to wear my new rainboots.  I like them <3
And because Jade was just dying to be in my is a scruffy little baby face, complete with oatmeal smeared all over it :)

Jade loves breakfast. From the moment she opens her eyes, the first word on her lips is "breffus!" I am learning to enjoy breakfast as well. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love to eat. It's just sometimes I get caught up with the morning and the next thing I's lunch!!!  So here's to Jade and breakfast!

It was a day filled with Farmer's Markets, a nice walk, and a quaint little cookie shop. I was overjoyed to find that they sell boba. So I had a almond boba and we nibbled on gourmet cookies.
And, thanks to a cute little book at the cookie shop...I now need a rain barrel.

We were so surpised by beautiful flowers! We had no idea they were even there because we moved in last fall. It was as if one day, they just popped up out of nowhere. We were so happy! Each day I have to guard these beautiful ladies from prying little hands that want to pick and destroy.

Making Wishes

To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
Psalm 25:1
I like the Country!

Whenever you get the chance, dip your feet in a cool stream.  It will make you feel totally alive!

I love this picture of Joe and his Mom, Renee.  I love Renee so much, she is not only my mother-in-law but a, sister in Christ, and a friend.  She has always accepted me, from day one and that means a lot to me. I never had to work for her favor, she just loved me.  I treasure our relationship and love her dearly.

little dresses

I made this dress last year for Hazel. Only, I never finished it. I procrastinated sewing the straps, and sooner or later so much time had past that it was 20 degrees and deep into winter when I even gave it another thought. So Jade has inherited this little dress!! She looks super cute in it.  I can't wait to make tons more ;)

Warm Nights.

We sat on a concrete slab overlooking the harbor,  sun kissed and happy. Joe shucked oysters; we ate fresh shrimp, catfish, and hushpuppies and drank sweet iced tea. We gazed upon the beautiful sky and stars and delighted in the warm evening free of sweaters and scarves. We were star struck to see marine one fly by and found ourselves pointing at the sky. It was the kind of evening that seems to last forever and you are happy because you want it to never end.
