Friday Love!

Yesterday was so beautiful!
These tulips looked like they were just peeking.
Last night a huge storm blow in.
We had crazy rain and fierce winds.
There is now new snow
in the mountains above us.
I still LOVE Spring!

Here are a few more things I loved this week:
Look how lovely paper flowers can be.
Look how amazing "Donkey Cabinets" are.
I don't have any tattoos myself,
nor will I ever,
and I may just reconsider
(just kidding).

A Daughter's Love.

Britni finished up her finals this week.
She has been working on her Graphic Arts Degree.
Look what she made!
So so so lovely!
And it's the sweetest thing she made something about a mother.
Although she has been super busy
and she hasn't posted for awhile.
She also has an Etsy shop here.
She makes the cutest wallets 
and she just gave me one!

Silly Little GIrl!

Little Miss Sunshine came over yesterday
for a short couple of hours.
She loves climbing up on the window sill
above the window seat.
She lightly bonked her head
and I was able to capture this.

Little Miss Sunshine.

 This one she was playing with Grandpa.
We went for a walk after Sunday Dinner.
Rian would start to run and just laugh and laugh.
This is what pure JOY looks like.

Hip Hip Hooray it's Friday!

Oh, those little cherub cheeks and those massive azure eyes.
Just can't get over her.

Here are some other things I loved this week:
Some people are just a whole lot of cool and cute.
Have a great weekend!

Studio in Progress!

I am working on my Artist Studio!
I painted one wall with chalkboard paint.
The rest of the walls just have primer on them.
I am slowly but surely working on it!
That cute floor is vinyl flooring!
We have an oldish retro home
and this basement room has
uneven concrete floors.
     I got this cool, funky, retro lamp here 
 I have been eyeing it for months and months!
Why yes!
It is pink!

Ode to Neon Trees.

I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it!
Ok. Not with the video but with Neon Trees AND this song!

Greener and Greener everyday!

 This was from yesterday.
 Budding leaves are starting to explode!
Today is a rainy and grey kind of day. 
There's more and more green
and that makes me so happy!

Look what I got!

Look what I got on Saturday
for just $58!
No, I don't cut hair.
I am working on my craft room.
Although, I have decided to call it my Artist Studio.
Sounds pretty snazzy doesn't it!
I am under no delusion of any artistic ability
but I really love the ring of Artist Studio
and isn't there something 
about putting out there 
what you really want.
So, this is me. 
Putting it out there.
I just thought this would be a fun, cute and comfy chair 
for someone to hang out with me while I 
work on my many different artistic projects.
LOVE it!

Have a great weekend!

And a River Ran Through it.

After dinner we went to a park and went for a walk.
There was a very small river.
A stream really.
Davis said, "I have a gold pan in the trunk of the car! 
Can I gold pan?"
So he did.

I know Easter was yesterday.
I found this poem today.

"Empty Linen"

The linen which once held Him is empty.
It lies there,
Fresh and white and clean.
The door stands opened.
The stone is rolled away,
And I can almost hear the angels singing His praises.
Linen cannot hold Him.
Stone cannot hold Him.
The words echo through the empty limestone chamber,
"He is not here."
The linen which once held Him is now empty.
It lies there,
Fresh and white and clean
And oh, hallelujah, it is empty.

Emily Harris, "Empty Linen,"
New Era, Apr. 2011, 49

Spring Snow.

For days it's been so lovely.
No need for a jacket, even.
This is what we woke up to this morning!

Here are some other things I love:

I want to play with the seals now!
Love me some pink!
I would LOVE a studio like this!
I love the Small Cool Contest
at Apartment Therapy.
Except for the cardboard deer head.
So much to love here.
And so much here too.

Another Walk.

We went for another walk last night.
It was so beautiful.
Not as quick and easy time at bedtime
but yesterday was his best day in months!
So I'll take that and be glad!

Out for a walk.

We went out for a walk last night.
It was just a ten minute drive.
Beautiful but only a little bit cold.
Davis walked or ran so far in front of us.
We then went to get yummy frozen yogurt
just the four of us.
He was so tired when we got home
that he fell asleep 
almost as soon as his head hit the pillow.
No panic, no complaining, no restless turning.
I think we'll walk every single evening from now on.

Provo Canyon.

On Friday, Davis and I met Britni for lunch,
dropped something to Jeff's work 
and drove up the canyon 
and went for a walk.
It was such a beautiful day!
