For the last nine and a half days I've been spending most of my waking hours with my parents, (who finally returned from a long, two-month road trip to visit the rest of our family) and with two of my favorite girls: my Little Sister and her Little Miss Sweetness.

As you can see, the weather has allowed for diaper-only, dandelion-picking afternoons. 

We've been busy planting a garden in my parents' backyard, going on walks, eating lunch in my new backyard, making gravy pitchers on my dad's pottery wheel, going on more walks, getting boxes unpacked, building bookcases, filling those bookcases with all our favorite books, and so much more. My parents invited a friend of theirs from Sydney to come stay with them for a while - she arrived on Wednesday. I hope she's enjoying all of our little adventures.

Today we did a little shopping - found some cute fabric to add a little {persimmon-like} color to our life in the form of new curtains, some new curtain rods on which to hang those curtains, a large chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano (since I just ran out yesterday... and it's a staple in our house), and a few other random items. We ended the day with gelato at this Sweet Shoppe. Afterall, gelato is also an important staple in our life.

Tomorrow we are all headed to the coast... a place that has been a source of healing. I'm looking forward to another day with those I love, in a place I dearly love. These staples of my life keep me going. My day with them surely will not disappoint.

I'm so glad you are having a chance to enjoy those "staples" of life that helps us keep moving forward when our hearts are broken. I think you are amazing! And I'm totally jealous you are getting to go to the coast...oh, I love the healing power of the ocean.
Love ya!

I have so missed you! I am so glad that you are having a great time with your family! And, I'm so jealous I missed the gelato from Powells! :)

I can hardly wait to see your new curtains and the bookshelves! That is awesome!

I hope you had a great day at the coast!

Hugs to you!
