Enjoying the little life moments.

I have just spent two days without wearing any makeup. None at all.  And we have had absolutely no schedule. I even had two naps yesterday. Yes. Two naps. Bliss. Total bliss. My son has probably had too much screen time – but he has helped me with watering the gardens without any complaint and […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps | Staycay Vacay

Oh sadness. My week-long staycation vacation is nearly over. Sigh. Life does go on and I suppose it’s time to get back to the office and get a head start on my spring to-do list. Joe, too, will head back to school tomorrow for the start of his fourth quarter. (Just a few weeks from […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps | The Last of the Garden Color

Let’s be real here. It’s October 16 in Minnesota and while winter is “technically” a couple of months away, I think we all know November is creeping ever closer and it’s about time to put the gardens to bed.
