35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

1/12 of 2012

       So today is February 1st.Can you believe it? 1/12th of the year is gone. January was good to us. I hope it sets the tone for the rest of the year.February is even offering us an extra day this year.Thank you February. I will do my best to make that extra day awesome! I might have to come up with something fun for that.

Right now I'm sipping on the most excellent coffee.My big kids are off to school and my little kids are snoozing away. I went to bed early last night with the hopes of being able to get up earlier. It worked. I really need to maintain a better sleep schedule. We are all night owls around here and it needs to change.

See that picture? I'm just in love with it! When we took our walk in the comfy 60* weather yesterday the wind was blowing and Caleb was running with his arms out. 'Look Mama!!! I'm flying!!' I was so glad to capture it and thought to myself : This is one of the best times of your life.Being a mama to these sweet little kids who are fun and full of energy and imagination.
Something so simple can be such a wonderful Thank you God kind of moment.

I'm simply grateful for something like the technology we hold in our pockets to record these awesome snippets of everyday life.
And yes- I will be getting this framed.

I'm off to read up on Craft Weekend.(Someday.....) while relaxing to some Bon Iver.
Happy Wednesday and Happy February to you!

Well, I just love everything about this post!

Also, I'm a terrible, horrible, awful night owl. Cory and I have been in bed by 10:45 for the past 3 nights in a row. That's a BIG deal around here. I wish I could say that it has changed my life, but it hasn't. Yet. I'll keep trying... :)
