The past 3 years, A and O have each painted a canvas for Sweet Scotty for Father's Day.
He loves this gift, and his office is beautifully decorated with adored art work.
This year I encouraged the kiddos to paint a beach scene.
I love the end result.

This is a gift that the giver and receiver both look forward to.

Fundraiser Photos

Last night I finished my last fund-raising photo shoot.
I just want to thank all of the precious people who took part.
I was blessed by your love and generosity.
I can only hope that I poured as much into each of your lives as you poured into mine.
My intention was to bless a few children and their families, but I am confident that I received the bigger blessing.
You are all so beautiful!

Thanks again!


My greatest anxiety as the mother of a beautiful girl is my lack of experience with anything girly. I feel completely overwhelmed by the idea of styling of her hair.

Imagine my being handed a sheet of paper detailing how her hair was to be styled for her very first dance recital.

Let's just say, I didn't sleep well for several weeks.

For picture night, I had it professionally done, and I watched every move that the stylist made and asked far too many questions.

Well, today was the much anticipated event. I am proud to report that I DID IT!
I graduated from college with a 4.0 and birthed a 9lb 13oz baby boy, but this now tops my accomplishment list.

Thank you God for my precious daughter, and the opportunity to learn new things!

Summer Lemonade

I have a lot of ideas on how to decorate our home for summer. In fact, I even purchased a little something on eBay yesterday. However, I haven't taken the time to spruce up the place. On Saturday, I found this vintage glassware at a garage sale for $5.00. It will certainly look delightful in my Shasta camper, but until then, it found a place of honor in my dining room.

Lemonade anyone?
