a weekend to remember

{husband's homecoming}

As we celebrate Memorial weekend, let's not forget those who gave us that liberty.

I'm so thankful my husband came home safely from Iraq. 
I pray for those who have lost their loved ones to war.
I can't even begin to imagine the heartache. 

Hug those who are near and dear to your heart this weekend.

find the glad in it.

1. delafield art walk.
2. dreaming of a studio here someday.
3. my new toms arrived. best. shoe. ever - hands down.
4. rooting for the brew crew with mr b.
5. celebrating the graduation of my lil' sis (why don't i have a photo with her?) 
6. beautiful iris outside our door, spotted while walking to the coffee shop with huz

life has been a whirlwind of...well, just life for lack of a better term
& i'm enjoying every single second of it.

yes, there are times when i'm not 100% happy, but like my mama says...
"find the glad in it."

there's always something to be thankful for.

so, in our house we;

"promise to be so strong that nothing can disturb our peace of mind. we look at the sunny side of everything & make optimism come true. we think only of the best, work only for the best, & expect only the best. we forget the mistakes of the past & press on to the greater achievements of the future. we give so much time to the improvement of ourselves that we have no time to criticize others. we live life in the faith that the whole world is on our side so long as we are true to the best that is in us."

{no, i don't make husband recite this every morning...but, now that i'm thinking about it...}
(jk sweetheart.)

so, if you find yourself down in the dumps, remember...
there's always something to be glad about

hi summer

what did you do with spring? today was a muggy, sticky, hot day. don't get me wrong, i would never turn away a gorgeous sunny, hot-hot-hot day, but what happened to the pleasant 60 degree breezy days? whatever, i'm not complaining. (even though it sounds like i am.) i've been in a complaining mood lately due to numerous annoying situations, i keep telling myself to find the glad in things & be thankful for all, but sometimes i just want to whine. so deal. what's that snooky says? "wahhhhh".

was that a super-ginormous-obnoxious run-on sentence? my bad.

{welcome days of cruzin' with the top down.}

side note: has anyone seen any super fab nightstands anywhere?
i'm in need of 2 that will compliment a walnut-colored sleigh bed.
please do share.

Happy Birthday Mama!

May 5th-Mama's birthday! My Mama is the most loving, caring, generous lady I've ever known. She is always willing to do anything for anyone. I don't know what I would do without her! Really, I don't!

Mama: I'll never forget these things about you -

"Love you, kiss you, see you in the morning." Afternoon errands. Byeeee-Byeeee. Your love for flowers & all things beautiful. Sam's Club. Glassware & silver pieces. THE HILL. Flannel jammies. Buckkinnggg Broncoooo. BUFFALO! Baby Elephant Walk. Lemon juice. Curling my hair. Vintage shopping. Refinishing furniture. and a million other things that aren't coming to my measly mind at the moment. 

{hugs & kisses}

happy may!

happy may day to you, my lovelies! i feel as if i've been on-the-go for the last three-hundred-million-days. {it's been a good on-the-go, though. i say always better to be busy than bored.} i'm going to share my last week in photos {because i don't feel like typing} plus photos are way more exciting than my jumbled writing. {mom-grab your glasses.}

{new crib. #206. i can't tell you whereabouts. stalkers.}


{egg hunt.}
