Hello friends and goodbye April...
for some reason it is May tomorrow. Nobody asked me if it could be May yet, but it is all the same.
I was stressed out making this months Mock 365 collages. Picnik was so. darn. easy!
I kinda-sorta figured out how to do photo collages using Picassa. There was a little hair-pulling, but I got it. If anyone has any Elements tips, lemme know...
Easter @ Biltmore.
Such a gorgeous day. I swear a pastel-colored filter was cast over the whole lawn creating this beautiful Easter-y glow. It was magic (and I don't even like calling things magic.)
Clockwise from left corner: Field trip to the farm; fun with friends; goodbyes in the airport; spring lambs; horse-riding; Spring flowers; the Blue Ridge Mountains; Sissy and Gramps saying goodbye after our surprise trip to South Dakota.
A fulllllll month for sure. Spring is my favorite. (as is any season we are currently in.)
In other random news:
The Farmer's Market.
Our new Friday tradition to get our veggies for the week.
I admit, I bought these green packs of strawberries because I like the green box....and because Sophia took a bite out of a strawberry and put it back in the package....ahem.
The Jack's at the farmer's market. Have I ever told you that my friend Carissa not only named her kids (well just one) the same as mine, but we also have the same anniversary...like not just the day, but the year?! How crazy is that?
So ya, here's the Jacks.
We took a field trip to a farm last week. It was the cutest thing ever.
These people raise miniature horses, lambs, chickens...so many new babies and soooo cute!
The horse pictured below had just been born TWENTY minutes before we got there! I almost cried! I am a sucker for birth stories, but really TWENTY minutes?! It took him a while to figure out how to find food, but he did. So cute.
Spring and it's new life.
This weekend was super full. All day Saturday was spent here....
Yes, it was lovely. Carissa and I lived it up for hours in IKEA, had a super girlie lunch, then headed off to a Pottery Barn Outlet store...pure shopping joy.
Sunday was then assemble day. I bought a daybed for guests that magically transforms into a double bed AND has storage. It's pretty cool.
Ok, and last random...
Do y'all get Midwest Living magazine? Guess what's on page 10?! Pretty excited about this one :) These pillow are both in my shop or over at Dirt Couture, a gardener's hayday.
Today is the first day of week five of six in my master plan. Only two weeks of school left. School, finishing up projects, cleaning, and lots of other detail things are going to be smashed into these next two weeks. Is your May busy too? Let's get started...
