our snowy trip earlier this year...

It's so fun looking back at pictures... remembering... smiling.




this was such a fun breakfast we had with our friends...
I just love making eating experiences special... it really doesn't take much but a little bit of lovin...
I love table cloths... flowers picked from the garden... a bowl of berries... and friends that we care about very much!




Every year we try to get away for New Years! Leading up to Christmas with our business we get quite busy and we feel to actually "get away" helps us totally unwind and spend every bit of our time and fully be there with our children! Being away... unplugging.. nothing to do but play in the snow... tickle our girl's bellies.. hike.. play cards... run, play... I love every ounce of vacation!




we rented a cabin north Georgia with our fingers crossed for snow... and thank you Mother Nature and the fairies for delivering a pretty blanket of fluffy sparkly snow...
The cabin was amazing! tucked away in a little village with just a few other homes.... mountains in the distance... chimneys puffing... 



crinch crunch goes the snow and the frozen grass... there really is nothing like a peaceful quiet winter... is there? That feeling of fresh cold air as you walk outside... the way your cheeks get so cold and your eyes sparkle and tear up... you just can't help but want to run and play... the winds pick up and your hair gets covered with snowy dew... then wack your children hit Pappa in the head with a snowball... awesome! nice shot!




we are water seekers... always have been... always will be... when we venture to the mountains, lakes and waterfalls are our absolute treasures... we always pull over whenever we see a look out... scenic route... why not... vacation... no hurry... stop... see the scenic routes! find a trail... walk it! get lost! 




having Pappa Bear from Sweden we always take a picnic and coffee/hot chocolate with us... always!
you will always find us on the side of a mountain with our coffee thermos and some cookies...






this mountain is super high! Brasstown Bald! one of the highest peeks! and when Mattias and I were into mountain biking we biked this mountain... today... eh em... we take our minivan...
but yes, of course... one day we will come back with our bikes... minus the snow... 
but wow, what a view! what a day!



Happy New Year time! So exciting! we lit a lantern and watched it fly up in the sky... a nice way to say good-bye to another year and hello to a new beginning... I always love New Years Eve! I love all of the traditions and I love mostly watching our children through our traditions.... they get as excited as I do...


so when we returned to Florida... we went to visit the mermaids! what a treat for our mermaid loving girls!



this spring was soooo beautiful! look at the color! we even spotted a bald eagle! 

always time for a little sister snuggle... Isabelle is such a lover! she has so much love to give so many people but especially her sister... my gosh, she loves her ... sometimes too much.
I am always reminded of the cartoon Pepe Le Pew... the way the one just malls the little skunk... it's so Isabelle... always wants to hug on her sis...
