My Little Artist

I never get tired of my kids' art shows. I have saved many of my oldest daughter's artwork and catalogued it by years. The youngest is no different and I have already started saving many of her fine pieces of work, including these. Love the use of color and imagination.

Learning to Knit

Rather than engage in "resolutions", we decided to challenge ourselves with learning one new thing every month and to tackle it together. For the month of January, we learned to knit.

We signed up for Knitting 101 at Birds of a Feather and had the most kind, patient teacher, Steven. He managed to teach all three of us, help us through our mistakes, and encouraged us to enjoy this new skill. 

So much fun!

Beauty Stumbled Upon

I love visiting This is Glamorous blog.  I can get lost in beautiful images - a time luxury I haven't had in awhile. But as I was catching up on this site, I came across these images and thought I would share. 

I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Basketball Begins

It’s been a season of learning new things.  B just started basketball and is having a wonderful time.  She’s even been the leading scorer at a couple games and I can’t believe the hustle she shows.  So proud of this little girl!

Go #25!

Antiquing and Wineries

I love antiquing.  Always have.  I don’t really have a “thing” I’m looking for.  I just enjoy browsing through time and hoping to come along a little something special. Even better is if the “little something special” item has a story.  While we enjoyed stopping at a couple really awesome places, probably the coolest find was an off-the-beaten-path winery.  We pulled into the lot, walked inside, and instantly knew this would be a great little place on a rainy afternoon.  B played on her iPad while Greg and I enjoyed a tasting of yummy ice wine, a port, and some light reds.  Cheers!
