We visited the farmer’s market today. I have a special place in my heart for the farmer’s market. I could wander and people watch for hours if I was allowed to. As it is, I walk quickly and deliberately to my favorite vendors, stopping to browse at very few because Ole is sitting in the […]

hibiscus

My mom gave me this hibiscus tree for mother’s day this year. It sat in my dining room, sad, unloved in its original pot. I spent hours trying to find the pot I wanted at random stores. Then I found a ceramic version that was close to what I was looking for; however, ceramic wasn’t […]

In the car again, on the way back from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Our trip started cold and rainy, but the weather turned around for the last 36 hours. The clouds left and we were able to see the sun set over the lakes and then rise the next morning over the palisade on […]

flower-of-the-day

We are leaving early Thursday morning for our family vacation up to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. I’ve been going there since I was Kiwi’s age, and I love being able to bring my kids and watching them experience everything. When I was little, we stayed in a small cabin out in the woods with […]
