sunday photos

We have enjoyed the week. I love spring break for the weather, the time, and... that it means summer vacation is just around the corner.  I have no idea how I will mark time when my kids are out of school!  Here are a few glimpses of the fun...


Last week we took a trip to the botanical garden... we've been meaning to go for years.  I fell in love with this bloom... from the Shaving Brush Tree.  I wanted a thousand more pictures, but my guys were anxious to move on...



One of my sweetest friends was in Boston a couple of weeks ago, and she really wanted to go on a cupcake tour.  Unfortunately, the people she was traveling with didn't feel like it, so it didn't happen.  Until yesterday... when I took her on a cupcake tour of our town!  Three shops and a bonus donut stop!  This chocolate one was my favorite!  We had a ton of laughs, and enjoyed the day together exploring and critiquing!



It seems we have been traveling up and down the highway all month long... and while the miles stretch on and on with weariness, there is something in me that loves a road trip.  Perhaps it is watching the dark turn to day along side me, or the way a sunset can give you hope that rest is coming soon...



After pinning at least a million ideas onto Pinterest, I finally made something.  There wasn't even an excuse for not doing it sooner... I had every supply!  The other night, I took the time to find the map, and stitch around my hometown, where our love story began.  And that Coast Guard bear? Well, he marks how our story began.  I walk into the house, see this little grouping, and smile.  It represents a whole lot of memories, a whole lot of years ago.



How many times have I searched for my sandals... only to find them right where I left them?! Under the table.  Sometimes I even find more than one pair! It is a bad habit... one I haven't even tried to break.  A couple of times a week I gather up a few pairs and toss them into the closet... and then  I can't find them!

Linking up to Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday!  Think about joining in next week!
Here are the prompts...macro, wheels, shiny, weather, favorite sport.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I do the same thing with my slippers! I have to have 2 pair because one pair is always MIA. I would love to go on a cupcake tour. We only have one place here and it is a 30 minute drive. Probably safer that far way. Thanks for sharing.

Great idea with the map. That cup cake looks good enough to eat. I think I may have to take the grand kids on such a tour this summer.

These are wonderful! That cupcake looks absolutely divine. I have to admit, I'm constantly losing my shoes under the coffee table.

Your sunset from the road is beautiful. I too, love a good road trip--but I prefer ones where we are not rushed. We can stop for a picnic or just to stretch our legs at the scenic overlook etc.

Great set. I found the Shaving Brush bloom to be fascinating. It does resemble a shaving brush.
MMmmm that cupcake looks way to yummy. Gorgeous sunset and I too share that bad habit of leaving my shoes wherever I take them off and then searching for them the next time I want to wear them.

I love all your photos! The interest project is awesome…..what took you so long?? ;)
Well, you and Lindsay have a lot in common. Her shoes can't find their way to the closet either and if they do….then she can't locate them.
