Simply ten good things & a little giveaway

25 Apr

This morning, Soulemama posted a list of simply ten good things.  I thought this would be the perfect way to celebrate that Lady Bird turned two yesterday. Two years I have been clacking away at his little snippet of mine in internet land, and it has been simple and good.  I am grateful for this little space to write my thoughts, share my projects, post pictures of my kids, and carve out a little way to remember all the fleeting, special moments in between the hustle and bustle of a home with very little little ones.

My ten simple, good things on the 25th of April:

:: warm, beautiful weather to celebrate the start of a week

:: no one is sick, anymore

:: little girls who recreate easter eggs hunts for each other because “it was so much fun, mom”

:: Eva sitting up all by herself this weekend

:: Sophie Rose’s little comedian giggle

:: Ella able to write the name of everyone in our family

:: saying goodbye to all the unneeded things taking up space in our garage

:: the girls playing with water on the back patio  Sophie just fell in.  Ella is singing Row Row Row Your Boat.  I love how they play together.

:: peach iced tea for me while I watch the sisterly love

:: vintage sheets ..  for you!

I really love vintage sheets.  And, I have collected quite a collection.  As we were cleaning the garage, this weekend I realized perhaps a little bit too big of  a collection, so I want to share.  Just leave a comment, one of your simply good things, and I will pick a winner on Thursday (4/28).  These pieces make me think of a spring picnic blanket.

Thanks again for reading, dear friends.  I really like my little space here, and I am thankful you choose to read.  Happy birthday Lady Bird!

    oh my! oh my!!! What a sweet give-away.

    my good thing is both children sleeping, the back door open letting in a much needed breeze, and a glass of red wine.

    Love and miss you my dear friend!

    Oh, how your posts make me miss/appreciate you!

    As for my good thing, it would be free time to cuddle up with Charlie (my dog) under a light breeze from the ceiling fan…with a horribly self-indulgent TV show on in the background.

    (Much love to my Katie Z!)
