Fun with Aunt and Uncle R

Violet's had a blast at the local Merry Go Round the other night. Her Aunt and Uncle have moved back to Missouri. They will be missed, but we are thankful that they got to know her while they were here for the past year and 1/2. This was her first time on the horses and she loved it!

Happy Birthday to me!!!

Yes that's me. I think I was around 6 or 7. I love revisiting old photos of me on my birthday.Spent the weekend with family for a homemade brunch. Got flowers at work today from my love. Lots of lovely messages from amazing friends and family. A great organic facial. Beautiful artwork from my little one. And lots of baby kicks from my very little one. We had gluten free pizza tonight which was delicious! And ladies figure skating tonight! PERFECT! What a great day!

Big News !!!

We just purchase this Vintage Beauty. We are so excited to begin a cosmetic redo on the inside. I have lots of ideas in my head. We are going to have a seasonal site up in Wells Beach Maine. I finally will have my beach getaway! This is a much more affordable option and we can move anywhere we want to. The possibilities are endless!!! How do you think we should decorate it?

Thrifty Finds

I had a great day thrifting. I am participating in two swaps, so I had good reason to thrift. I found some great treasures. That quilt was only $12. I can't believe it was that cheap and no one else grabbed it before me. ANd the red purse a mere dollar! It is simply amazing what one can find at the thrift store.

Happy Valentine's Day

Tonight we celebrated one of my favorite days. I kept hearing over and over from other friends and coworkers that they didn't like Valentine's Day because they felt it was too commercial. Well I don't feel that way. Have you ever read the back of Vintage Valentine? "My love grows fonder everyday in every way" Yours Henry. I could go on and on. The romance from times of the past and now stay with me and it's a day on the calendar to really express to your family and loved ones how much you truly care.
In honor of the day, we had a Chocolate Buffet. It was my first time making the Chocolate was so easy and fun. Violet loved her goodies and so did my husband. My gift is still being made by husband. I will post pictures after I receive it. A handmade holiday is the way to go! Maybe if those that don't like Valentine's Day try that next year, you will enjoy it more and find the true meaning of LOVE.
