love me fiercely. Once we had all our little folded papers written, we sealed them in a box and packed it away with our Christmas decorations. I jotted mine down on a paper so I could check back on it and keep myself pointed toward the goals. Gosh I love that, and you know something? It was actually fun! We plan to add to it next New Year's Eve and see how we did over this year.
things I love, and it's been awesome.
favorite brownie recipe, and made brownie pops with it that were gluten free and they have haunted my dreams. Mmmmmm.
love affair with cutie oranges.
clutter spot of my life for a while but since we are back in the swing of showings, I needed to find boxes to shove all the papers in. Too bad it never lasts...
how I felt and that's what I blogged. You loved me in return.
Gray eat napkins. Lovely.
a new answer. Did I get it? Time will tell...but until then, I just keep saying, "yes" to Him.
gray and golden yellow? Everything about it makes my heart smile.
buying them up in bunches. I love that little pieces of my artwork (pieces of my heart) are making their way to your homes!!
white hydrangeas. They died on me by morning and I was so mad at myself. I automatically thought, "Oh perfect. This seems to be how the month is shaping up for me..." But then I splurged on a big bouquet of white tulips, tossed out the dead flowers and started fresh. A new day.
cutest little happy dolphins you've ever seen. She's a bright spot in my world, that's for sure!
prettiest golden-hued paint (I have no idea the color because I brought an envelope into my paint store and had them match the color) and covered this old gray bedside table in it. Then I sanded spots and rubbed in a dark stain and beat it all up. Now it's pretty and sunny.
Life is sweet when your biggest task all day is trying to catch snowflakes in your hand or in your mouth.
"yes" girl. Bless her little heart... school was cancelled for the day, so she showed up on my doorstep at 7:45 am. I begged her to give us an hour to get moving and get dressed, then back she came. Wearing nothing but a soggy pair of gloves, boots with no socks, snow pants and a soaking wet sweatshirt. I yanked them off her in a heartbeat, threw them into my dryer, wrapped her in a warm coat, hat, and fresh gloves so she could go build a snow fort with my hoodlums. She stayed most of the day, so I fed her lunch, maple snow ice cream, hot cocoa by the gallon, and watched while my man had a massive snowball fight with all the kiddos. They loved every minute of it too! I am beginning to love this little girl with my whole heart. And isn't that kinda the point? I love you guys for loving her too.
stir-crazy. Feeling like I had to create something... anything! This baby was snatched up ten minutes after I posted it! I love that. I might need to make another for myself, but my barn wood is cut into shorter chunks so we'll see...
cherry bomb red in your life.
Inspired by Mr. Darcy. That is all.
green eyes. Gangly and long, he still tries to curl up and fit on my lap sometimes. I love those moments.
little orange bear from Daddy went too. (Adrain gave it to Ava after being gone on a trip when she was about two. She wrapped her little arms around it, and slept with it every night for the following four years. Now she just brings "Tennessee" out when Daddy goes to... well, Tennessee. Isn't that cute?
sit at my table and eat my lunch. Do you?
pink iced cookies?
Berkeley Ryann, was born 2 weeks early. We had ourselves a little party. These are her feet, minutes old. Still wrinkly! You can imagine how in love I am with her. She is precious and little... 6 pounds, one ounce! The waiting room erupted in cheers when my brother texted from the hospital room with, "She's here!" (So glad she waited til I was present! ha!)
Gumballs. I was a little preoccupied with wanting to see "my" baby girl again. And very tired... major lack of sleep going on in my house. And darnit, but this child lives an hour and a half away! If/when our house sells, I'll be less than a half hour away. Oh I can hardly wait for that day!
watching her yawn. Don't you just want to kiss her? (Sweet little Miss Berkeley, your auntie Sasha just loves you so!!)
month of LOVE. Did you guys know that Valentine's day is my favorite holiday? (Okay so in all fairness, every holiday that is about to arrive is my favorite holiday.)
Anyone else doing a 365 project this year?
