Sweet discoveries ~

With our family moving into a "new" old home the fall of this past year,
I'm just now seeing the wonderful old plantings
that exist around this old farmhouse!

Isn't Spring so amazing?!
Beautiful things are growing and blooming
around this house that I had no idea were here at all!!

Just look at these new tulips in our flower bed......
the color is absolutely beautiful to me.

Beautiful white azalea bushes...

And I HAVE to share with you the stately old pecan trees we have on our property!!
Can you see the beautiful moss growing on the trunks?

I have heard that it's not really Spring until the pecan trees are budding their leaves....
and just look at what's happening to ours!!!
Can you see the petite leaves?

I'm in love with moss....I can't help myself ~

It's been so overcast and rainy this week but still absolutely beautiful.....
Always look beyond everything else to see the beauty.

I hope you have a great Thursday dear friends!!!
hugs and love,

The sweet things in life ~

I just had, HAD to share these photos with you!!!
They're not the best I've ever taken as our living room has low lighting but
you can see this angel good enough.

Clara had her hair cut Thursday afternoon but it wasn't quite what
Emily had wanted. She wanted an inverted bob for Clara and
she basically got it cut straight all around.

Well, I've cut our boy's hair since they were newborns and
plenty of other folk's hair too! My mom, Dennis' mom and his grandmother as well.
I told Emily, let me shape it up for the birthday party ~

I can't believe it, but it turned out PRECIOUS!!!!
All stacked up in the back just like she wanted....
taking photos of this little powerhouse is like trying
to hit a moving target so some of these pics are blurry too!
Here's her sweet haircut after I blow dried it.....

We're having her second birthday party today and she will be all gussied up!!!

These moments...
my dear friends,
are the sweet things in life!!!

Have a beautiful Sunday precious friends,
hugs and love,

Spring is definitely here!

After painting the chicken coop the other day...
with all of the wind...
and the massive pollen count ~
my head now feels like a block of wood!!

I always forget how bad the pollen is here in Georgia
until it arrives :)

Here are just a few of the guilty culprits:

Off to take more allergy meds sweet friends ~
hugs and love,

~ PS ~

Please look at my precious granddaughter's first haircut!!!!

A very special day!!!

How did it happen???
Two years have FLOWN by!!!
Our little Clara is two years old today!!!
Seems we were just welcoming her into our family . . .

Here she is yesterday afternoon eating her first ice cream
from the neighborhood ice cream truck!
You can tell by the color of her lips that the LOVED it!
We're celebrating her second birthday here at the farmhouse this coming
Sunday afternoon and it's all about Dora the Explorer!

Brent finished our chicken coop!!!
I just love it!
He's going to make a plank so they can walk up to get inside at night ~

Don't you think it's wonderful??
I had to paint the outside to protect it from the weather ~
Of course I had to choose a great barn red color.

Next I'll be working on getting their actual pen finished ~
they still have to grow a lot before they can enjoy the coop
but I'm just glad to have it waiting for them!!

I hope you have a great Wednesday precious friends,
hugs and love,
