35 Years

Happy 35th Anniversary to my parents Mark & Janet!

In an age when so many marriages end in divorce, I am grateful to my parents for sustaining their union, for fostering a family of love and sharing, and for always making family come first.

Sorry the picture is so grainy. It's a scan of a copy.

"Toss your cares and curls away"

I've been wanting a change. I thought for a minute about going brunette. But I've always been blonde, so that seemed a lot scary. My hair has been growing out for a long time now. (I should have taken a before photo.) My hairdresser, sister Desiree, chopped about a foot off and gave me fountains of layers. I'm having such a fun time flipping my short hair all around. 

This is one of my favorite movies. Thoroughly Modern Millie. It's a 10 minute clip. Sorry. I couldn't find it shorter. The line I wanted is at 9:24. I've been saying it all week.

Almost from the day I joined Etsy, I have loved Hi Tree. It is one of the very first shops I hearted. The originality. The texture. The color---green. If you haven't checked the shop out do it! And if you want to get to know the artist Tina check out her profile. Recently I discovered her blog. And just a little while ago Tina held a giveaway. Imagine how excited I was when I won! It made for a great Monday morning! I just got my prizes & they are even better in person. I had such a fun time photographing all the goodies. Tina must love doing that. Everything was so dang cute!
