words… my mom gifted me with these boxes this weekend. These treasures were hidden amongst my late grand-mothers things. On Halloween it will be 8 years since she was taken in a traffic accident. I still miss her. She was one of my biggest encouragers when it came to pursuing the arts. I have so many fond memories of her, as she graced stages with her beautiful voice and her endless creative ideas. It’s a treasure of memories and trove of crafty girly ness. Oh the buttons, fur collars, 15+ pairs of gloves, sequins, lace cowls, pink shimmery fabrics…. my girls are dying to dive into all this. I should just let them go at it, in a way it would be passing on a legacy. What good is it to hoard and protect what begs to release creative freedom. What would you do with all these things?

- Going to see Incredibles 2 for Father’s Day... these folks were ahead of us, feeling like our family is underdressed 😳!Sometimes you just need to take the matter into your own hands... I’ve been wanting to paint a cornhole set for some time. I was giddy when I saw this class offered at my local Home Depot. Tonight I built my own boards... now to choose a design. Let the lawn games begin!The early bird gets the shmear. The little one wanted to get up early and be one of the first fifty people at a new Einstein’s by our house. The older child chose to sleep in. I’m thinking natural consequences may come into play at some point...Behind the smiles there were a few tears... We loved our neighbors on Thornhill; these girls and their mamas! They were such an answer to prayer when we moved here. We have been renting in Colorado for the last two years and the owner wanted to move back in. 😓Thankfully we were able to find a new home to purchase nearby and make it a bit more of our own. Trusting the bond that was formed and biker gang will never be broken!Last day of school!!! So proud of my gold metal academic girls, they rocked their classes with perfect scores.We woke up early this morning to watch the royal wedding. This afternoon we toasted the new couple with high tea and fascinators!
