Branching in?

Spending time with one of my favorite people is NEVER a chore. . . and our most recent weekend was no exception! We revisited an old haunt, and walked away with amazing new books! With considerable pinspirational eye candy we tackled making stellar headband-roses . . .  and succeeded! I’ll have to share my pictures of that one someContinue reading “Branching in?”

Don’t judge;  you’ve probably done itContinue reading “The Unplanned Bucket List. . .”

My family never did “Sunday Dinners”. . . in fact, Sunday wasContinue reading “Sunday Afternoons and Chocolate Chip Cookies”
