simple is beautiful

Back From the Land of Sunshine...

Monday, April 8, 2013

Hey strangers!  You may or not not have noticed, but I slipped away for a couple of weeks.  If we're connected on instagram, then you may have already seen a few of these pictures.  My family and I just returned from the land of palm trees and abundant sunshine.  I added to my freckle count, ate delicious food, and relaxed enough to put the spring back in my step.


With so many beautiful surroundings it is quite easy to sit and do nothing.  Thank heavens Mr. enjoys it as much as I do.  Now we are both energized and refreshed.  It doesn't hurt that we came home to gorgeous weather and hopefully it will continue for a few days.  Spring Fever has officially set in and I am ready to plant our vegetable garden.  I have so many ideas floating around in my little noggin'.


And with these guys around there is never a dull moment.  We have so many wonderful memories of our times in California.  My heart is full!



Nothing beats slowing down and taking it all in with my best friend.  Now to catch up with reality...
