fairy delay

the little miss is soooo excited about
the small gap left behind after
she lost her first tooth today.
i can't help but be excited with her,
yet at the same time there's that
little sting of reality
reminding me how quickly she's growing.
i've been promising to make her a
tooth-fairy pillow all week
with the expectation that it would pop out soon,
but here we are ~ and no pillow.
wish me time and patience for
pillow making tonight.

happy monday.

fresh air

the mr. and i have been hiking
a bit lately and enjoying all
the vibrant flowers coming to life.
each hike is a fun new adventure
among mountains, creeks, and meadows.
and it gives my man and i some
one on one (plus baby) time together,
which is always a bonus.
pure beauty this world is.

recycled fun

our house. garden and all.

the little miss and her classmates
created a whole town from recycled goods.
there were so many fun businesses
plus the fire and police stations.
little miss had a business called
the "dog spot" where customers
would pay play money to walk dogs.
no ~ not to have their dogs walked,
but to walk dogs from the "dog spot"
which was in reality...the pound.
too cute.

green eggs and...

haven't actually tried them with pork thus far,
but we sure have enjoyed them
every other way possible.
scrambled. hard-boiled. egg salad.
quiche. baked goodies.
have i missed anything?
do you have a great egg recipe
that i must try?
please share.

it's a joy to walk out and
collect the bounty from our
young ladies in the backyard.
although not everyone may agree.
between pooping and digging
they make plenty of extra
yardwork for the mr.
he's a gem to put up with me.
and them.

a couple of weeks ago the little miss
was not feeling so good.
with a temp of 104 she was pretty sedentary.
makes me grateful for her
energy when she is well.
i just adore this girl.

sleeping beauty

it seems that i haven't had much to blog about lately,
so i've decided to post some photos at the very least.
i may post something from my day,
a photo from the past,
or maybe something that reflects my mood.
or maybe it will be something that's just too stinkin sweet not to share...

big hugs to you all.

sweet escape

last month the mr. and i went on a mini vacation
where we soaked up the sound of the sea,
hiked in the mountains and
watched the sun melt away
leaving the most beautiful canvas of color.

we were blessed to stay in a beautiful house
with a backyard view of dolphins and seals.
we brought our littlest lovebug with us
since we are attached at the hip breast,
and introduced her to beach life.

as busy as life has been lately,
it's been so nice to take time to stop
and breathe in the day and all that is held in the present.
