Thanksgiving Recap

photo 5

Hey there friends! How was your Thanksgiving? I hope it was spent in the company of your loved ones…and with plenty of delicious homemade food.

We took a break from our busy schedule to head up to Big Bear with our extended family. It was a great way to unplug. And the weather was absolutely amazing! Some of my highlights were:

Gathering apples
from an abandoned tree.
Making The Man’s favorite Sweet Potato Casserole.
Teaching one of my sisters how to make gravy.
Antique shopping with another sister…found a silver & turquoise bracelet that I love!
Played rounds and rounds of Yahtzee with some serious folks. (Got a Double Yahtzee and won!)
Had a much needed coffee break with my sister and brother-in-law at this place.
Hit every thrift store in Big Bear..bought nothing. But still fun.
Scored a giant bag of free pinecones for a craft project.
And spent lots of time in front of a wood burning stove.
All in all, it was the perfect holiday!


Happy Memorial Day


As we all know, Freedom isn’t free.
Thank you, to those of you who have served, or are serving our country.
And remembering those who have fallen with honor.
This day is for you.

Happy Weekend


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
And for those of you celebrating Mother’s Day, may you enjoy every moment…as we all know, it’s well deserved. I’ll be spending time with my daughter, sisters and Mom. We have lots of birthdays added to the mix this weekend…should be lots of fun with all that girl power!
