Memorial Day 2016

FlagWe woke up bright and early this morning to take a trip to the ocean to watch the sunrise. Although it was a bit cloudy and muggy, it was a beautiful morning. We were among many other people- young surfers, families with their children or their pets, joggers, men fishing, couples snuggled together- but I believe we were all doing the same thing… watching the sunrise and being thankful to be blessed with another beautiful day to cherish.
The children waved their flags proudly as we remembered the brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice. We will be forever grateful for your honor and valor.Liam FlagFinnMadeleine FlagFamily Flag

White Cotton and Lace

DSC_2026I’ve spent the day making a few last minute details and preparing for the children’s Easter /spring pictures, which hopefully will happen tomorrow.  Of course, you can never be quite sure with children or the weather though.
My final to-do was to put the finishing touches on Madeleine’s dress. The pattern is my own, and I added lace sleeves cut from a scarf I had brought back from India a few years ago. It’s the perfect dress for a lovely spring day.DSC_2024DSC_2031DSC_2043BThe sun is starting to rise earlier and earlier, the days are warming up, the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and it’s finally starting to actually feel and smell like spring here.
Until next time…
