Today my love notes came in the form of
colorful muddy boots,
splashing in the creek,
singing on the bridge
squealing on the swing-set
and leaves glistening in the sunshine.
My love notes probably look a little different from yours.
The crazy, wonderful thing is that we each have our very own set of love notes (moments!)
signed, sealed and delivered by God
every single day.
He knows exactly what we want and exactly what we need.
Love notes for us.
Just because He loves us.
So thankful for my love notes today.
Don’t you just love surprises???
A couple of days ago I did a surprise photo session as a THANK-YOU GIFT!!
Thank you M for being the most perfect and beautiful model (and for helping me with this surprise)!!
Collage Template via Bird Design! I love the whimsical borders. These look so good in print!
Thank you so much for sharing your joy, kindness and creativity with all of us. You are a treasure to our family. UPS will soon deliver an extra-special package with lots of pictures for YOU! We wish you all the best in your next BIG adventure.
Love, Katherine & crew
P.S. Your gorgeous daughter is the most precious, gracious and darling twelve-year-old in the universe!! She takes after her mama in so many ways.
I’m always on the look-out for sweet little antique toys and books for the kids! Most of our collection comes from my dad who sends us care packages every month or so. The kiddos love opening PAPA’S packages– they never know what vintage treasures they might find!!
These Child Craft books are super special to me. My dad had an identical set of encyclopedias in his home when he was growing up.
Oh how I love these colors!
The other side of the bedroom.
Getting ready for naptime.
I don’t even want to know what is smeared on the wall?!
Wishing you a WONDERFUL day!
Emerson’s Birthday Table!
Of course she wanted PINK!
Inside this one- a Strawberry Shortcake doll! They still smell like they did when I was little.
I’m still hoping to do a faces-of-five series with her! (remember faces-of-four??)
My love. FIVE!!!!
Happy Hour around here means unlimited sunshine, crackers and vintage coloring books at the park!
Hooray for any kind of snow we can get. Inside! Outside! LOVE IT ALL!
I eventually got our Christmas snow flakes all hung up. I guess they are more like Valentine’s Day snowflakes now!
Look who just turned THREE years old!
Blaise’s Favorite Songs at Three:
I Used to Work in Chicago (he is singing that one here!)
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Kooka Beara Sits in the Old Gum Tree
If Blaise were to write a song today it would be about:
P B & Js
songs & story time
cuddles & kisses
chocolate milk & yogurt
You are the song of my heart.
No matter what you do, who you become or what happens in this world
I will always be your number one fan.
I love you,
Time to kiss SUMMER goodbye!!
No more tree huggin days!!
Goodbye hot hot nights.
Farewell first moments of learning to ride a two wheeler!
Ta-ta ice cream truck delights!
pink tutu swimsuit
tiny pool splashin
days of summer!
WELCOME FALL! So glad you are at our door step!
