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!

A Weekend with My "American Girl"...Happy Birthday Ana!


This weekend we had a lovely time celebrating my grand-daughter Ana's 10th birthday. Just an intimate little party with her mom, dad, brother, hubby and me...and the dogs of course. Ana is such a special little girl, quiet, precocious, and mature beyond her 10 years. We spent the evening eating chocolate cake, playing 'go fish', and looking at American Girls dolls on line.
I'm just so grateful for every precious hour I get to spend with my grandchildren.
