Hello, Monday!

We’re at it again.  Another start to a new week.  We had a super low-key weekend.  Lots of sleeping in and relaxing.  Extra cups of  coffee.  Not much on the calendar for the week (unlike last week) And I’m really happy about it.

Hope you had a great weekend.  And here’s to a new week!

Intentions for the week:

Clean slate

Clearing the table after dinner with friends.  I’ve got Easter on my mind.


Organizing the pantry.

I’m going to do room by room.

Current obsession: organizing + throwing away.


I picked up the clear tubs + shelf at Target last week


You’d die if you saw all the expired food I was storing.

Can you spot Bay’s candy cigarette stash?


Bay + her Dad put a lot of time into her Leprechaun House school project.  Insulation and all.

This is probably the 2nd time I’ve ever made pancakes.


Cory made corned beef + cabbage.  I made the soda bread (first time)


Everything turned out so good!

Brunch at Preserve Public House


Another day, another bandana

Park Winters Garden Tour

Three generations.

Our sweet GG.  92 years young.


Did you know Park Winters does complimentary garden tours?

The next one is Sunday, April 15th!

If you love flowers + gardens + or pretty things, go!

Click here to reserve your spot.

I was thoroughly impressed.  The owner guided us through each nook + cranny of  Park Winters.  He’s crazy inspiring.  The amount of love they’ve put into the grounds is crazy impressive.  His knowledge of each plant + tree was mind-blowing.   Everything was so well thought-out.

And I especially loved hearing GG rattle off the names of plants that other didn’t know.


Here’s just a handful of pictures I snapped along the way.


I must recreate this!



The sunken garden.  Might be my favorite area.  So much life.


Checking out the progress at the Truitt’s.

If you could only see what this room used to look like before they touched it.

The hard work really shows.  Can’t wait to see the completed project.

Let’s convince them to put their house on the Dicken’s In The Valley home tour so you can all check it out.


Sunday night dinner.


A weekend well spent bring a week of content.

Have a great week!
