|so i stepped on a nail last week.|
i know, right?
had to soak my foot twice a day.
this usually turned in to a party with my foot and at least two other little, tiny bebe feet.
|friday night lights.|
a beautiful end to what was a most lovely day.
not like a find a pot of gold day.
but a million little, perfect things that made the day the kind of day where your cheeks hurt from smiling.
|saturday morning found this boy asleep in the middle of his room.|
|and this little boy brought me flowers.|
it was his birthday.
i love his heart.
|speaking of love. . .|
still teaching me things.
|made two pies for my dad's birthday.|
he wanted coconut.
i wanted this.
|happy birthday to you, dad.|
it was a wonderful afternoon on the farm.
|you know what else i love?|
walking across the street and buying farm fresh eggs from my neighbor.
color me jealous.
what a blessed week.
what were your blessings?

|trying to figure it out.|

it was a lovely weekend.
|friday afternoon i snuggled up with this girl.|
hoping for a nap.
she wouldn't hear of it.
why don't these little people understand the goodness that is a nap?
|be still my heart.|

|we also chased some butterflies.|
|and almost caught one.|
