easter feasting

Is it just me, or does food bring people together in a special way? There is something wonderful about sharing your table and the fruits of your labours (or someone else’s for that matter).

easter treats

I’ve been sharing some older Easter posts.  This is a re-post from April, 2017. I’ve been mixing up a few treats for the weekend activities.

simple valentine’s day decor & true love

I’ve never really decorated specifically for Valentine’s Day, with the exception of when I had littles about. It was more about construction paper hearts and special pencils for school work back then. My Christmas and winter decor kinda meshed at that time. Lots of snowmen and sleds mingled with the more Christmas-y items. The diminutive…… Continue reading simple valentine’s day decor & true love
