simple...












sometimes just the simpleness of everyday life makes me the happiest... a little guitar jam... making my baby's food from scratch... dill growing in our windowsill... all of this fills my heart!

a chilly day at the park...





















a few weeks ago a nice chilly cold front came to visit us on a long weekend... such a nice change of things for us to pretend we have winter in this tropical land... It's fun for a few days... cold temperatures with bright blue skies... you can even puff your breath and see it in the air... SO FUN! Cold air makes Florida families frisky and needing to be outside in the freshness! ...especially if one's home is under construction... you start to climb the walls... so what a nice day for a neighborhood walk to our favorite park... 

It was a while ago that we have been here... maybe when baby Julien was a fresh newborn.. maybe... but it was fantastic taking the girls there again... felt like old times. They showed their baby brother all of their old favorite things and told him when he got bigger they could do more and more with him... patience girls... :-)

Christmas 2017




















Christmas was pretty sweet this year... seems like just yesterday we were writing letters to Santa and cooking Christmas food... It was Julien's 1st Christmas which is always just magical... I know he's little and doesn't really understand but I know that he feels the magic... and gosh it's so cute how his big sisters make sure that he knows what Christmas is... I loved listening to them explain the Elf to Julien as well as helping him tell Santa Claus what he was wishing for...
Our house is under construction and yes, we are living in it... so it was a little bit crazy but it was still beautiful and there was so much Christmas magic in our little home... I made cozy little corners and hung Christmas pines as well as twinkle lights wherever I could... it did the trick...
