Simple Things

Sometimes things in life are so simple that we forget about them. Let's not forget about color. Color is everywhere and helps us to shape who we are every day!

Love me some vintage finds!

Today started out like a "normal" Thursday, but quickly turned into a fun day of vintage finds and creative brain waves flowing, and flowing fast! A walk downtown for our local sidewalk sales proved to be an optimal way to spend the day!

For some light reading :)

For future travels from a past "American Tourister"

Some reading material for the dog days of summer

Now off I travel to the next day, where will you travel too?

Zucchini Bread / Muffins

(click picture for larger view)

I am making a scrapbook of recipes for my girls to have when they are on their own. Most of the recipes will be either favorites of the family or generational recipes. This is just one of the many that I have found to put in there.

Embrace Life

Today while I lay in the sun, I got to thinking...Life is GOOD! I feel so happy right now, and why wouldn't I? Summer is here, I don't have to wear a coat when I leave the house, and there is nothing like some Vitamin D.

Then I got to thinking...this is all going to be over in a matter of months, weeks if you really think of it. School is almost here, the Lily's have had their show. Things are going to go dormant and the snow is going to fall.

That's when my mind went, ugh.

But only for a minute, until I started to think of all the good things about each season. For those that know me, know I don't like winter...so that one is hard for me. But I figured out something fantastic about each season, and thought of the great things that I will be able to do when the leaves fall, the snow comes, and the tulips come back next spring.

So I went back to thinking " Life is GOOD" , and it's good in any season!

So as we embark on the last weeks of summer, embrace it and take it all in, because the next season is coming and we have to be ready to embrace that one too!
