Well: Filled...

Not every weekend is wonderful...but this one was pretty darn good. It was short, too...with Brent working on Saturday, we really only had one official day to our weekend...but it was a good day...full of all those simple things that just seem to fill the well and refresh the spirit. Just to mention a few...

  • Finally feeling better

  • Getting some good night's sleeps

  • A walk outdoors

  • A new haircut for Bea {courtesy of moi!'s a tad un-even, I think, but it'll do}

  • A little one year photo session with Maya in honor of the big day she'll be having on Saturday! {I'll be showing more pics from her little session throughout the week.}

  • Watching Maya happily wearing the scarf I knitted with this exact photo shoot in mind

  • Amish friendship bread {the making of which was a step short of a disaster, but the eating was amazing!}...I wish you were all closer. I have a couple starters left!

  • Speaking of good food...making and eating baked mac & cheese! Yum!

  • Watching three little ones walk around the house {yes, Maya is walking pretty efficiently now!}

  • Hearing three beautiful little voices sharing their thoughts {Maya is also saying quite a bit

  • A photo walk out back with Rayne
...which brings me to this...
Rayne has begun a weekly photo collaboration with the daughter of a blog friend of mine. Tessa and Rayne will take turns picking a theme for the week and they'll be posting their side by side images on their new blog!
This week's theme was "something in your backyard." Please stop over and see their pics and tell them how lovely they are!

Tomorrow I will post the first in a two part series on creativity! See you then!

Happy Monday!

what a beautiful weekend. :) I love the photo of you all in the mirror ;) FUN. I am so glad everyone is feeling better and I love that you got to take delight in so many perfect things. I wish every weekend could be so sweet :)
I love Rayne's little photo collaboration, I bookmarked their blog and left them a comment. What a great thing for the girls to do and how sweet that she wants to be just like Momma :)

Have a great Monday!
