i have really been enjoying jotting down the little things that make each day or week that much better...and i think i am going to try and make it a regular thing. i know i definitely need a reminder sometimes to put my worries aside and enjoy all the good things around me, so documenting it should help! xoxo
peonies. peonies. peonies.
i got off work a little early today and thought we should take advantage of the sunshine and head to dow's lake before the tulips and blossoms disappear. mark didn't take much convincing (the promise of stopping for a snack did the trick) and we were off. i recently took a camera class to get more comfortable using my camera in manual mode and today was the perfect excuse to get more practice. i still have lots to learn but am already noticing how much more comfortable i am using all the different controls. did i mention how much i love spring?
almost two years ago hattie became the newest member of our family. i only lived at home for a few months when she was a puppy, but she definitely makes our visits home even better. there is nothing more wonderful than being greeted by her cute little face and puppy kisses after a long drive. she has been slowly recovering from leg surgery in january and it was so good to see her getting back to her old self this past weekend...playing with her toys, growling at the tv, and waiting patiently for my dad to share his snacks with her. i mean, who could resist that face?
i am in love with the new clean slate line that crate and barrel has introduced....cleaning, organizing and doing laundry is a lot more appealing when you have beautiful items to help with the task. i am definitely adding these to my wish list. xoxo
