Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Stopping to Smell the Flowers

"What's this, Mama?"

"It's a flower, Baron. Now don't eat it. Flowers are  pretty...we're supposed to look at them and smell them."

" Okay, Mama. I like flowers."

"Me too, Baron!"

Though we're incredibly busy right now, I still make it a priority to walk every day with Baron. I began walking Baron to exercise the both of us. But now our morning stroll has become more than exercise. It is food for the soul.  As we amble beneath the firs in the City Park, there is such beauty and peacefulness. This morning, there were hundreds of delicate pink bleeding hearts with pure white trillium interspersed amid them. Birds sang and the sun filtered softly through the leaves...glorious! I have no photos for you, as this time is just for Baron and me. 

I have sorely missed taking photos on my hiatus, so I did shoot a few shots this morning when we returned home. Posts will still be few as we continue to forge along in the remodeling process. 

Loving those shadows! It means the sun is finally out! Woo-hoo!
Hope you stop to smell the flowers and see your shadow too!

Remodeling has a way of making things topsy turvy! I'm glad you get to have your walks...

Yep, I've been smelling the flowers AND enjoying the starts and stops of our sunshine :)


PS I LOVE the shadow of Baron sitting so patiently while you snap a pic! A perfect dog image!
