Polka Dots

Last year we had a mini (aka family) polka dot party for our sweetie.

In a few short weeks she will be three???  How can this be??   


Find the Good.

Find the Good.
It’s all around you.
Find it.
Showcase it,
and soon you’ll start
believing it too.

Chocolates to Heaven

I loved sending my grandma little care packages stuffed with cookies, chocolates and salt water taffy.

I won’t ever be able to send her a package again.

She left for Heaven early this morning.       

I will miss her love.

I will miss her kisses.

I will will miss her voice and her smile and her laughter.

I will miss her asking, “When ya gonna have another baby Katherine?  I need another great granddaughter. Get busy!”

Grandma I would send you a million packages to heaven if I could.

Thank you for loving me and making me feel like I was the most special person in world.

Good-bye Grandma. 

 I love you.

I like all sorts

of Valentines.

Vintage Valentines are my favorite…


No wait!  What I really adore are kid-made Valentines…  


I even like store bought Valentines!  NO joke. 


You must KNOW I like unique Valentines…                                                                                         [Here’s-the-scoop, cotton candy cones via La-T-da!]

Valentine, I pick you.

Sorry guys!

I couldn’t resist! 

 This post is dedicated to my friend, the fabulous & amazing Christy of Beach Brights.  Christy is one the most kind, encouraging and generous people I know. 

She’s feeling blue today and I wanted to cheer her up.  

So Christy it could be worse– 

You could come clean my kids AND my house!
