FroYo With Friends

This afternoon, after lunch, we met up with dear friends of ours who we had not seen in ages. Their mama and I have been friends for about ten years now, and no matter how long we go between visits we always pick up right where we left off. While the visit was not nearly long enough, it was a wonderful way to start the week! Until next time, friends! xo

Makin' Molasses Cookies

Today our to-do list involved making Molasses Cookies- some for us and some for a celebration tomorrow afternoon. The recipe is super simple and the cookies bake up beautifully every time. It wouldn't be autumn without these cookies, and we've decided that they must make an appearance at our family Thanksgiving celebration next month. xo

{This Moment} In The Orchard

{This Moment} - A Soule Mama Friday ritual. A single  photo - no words- capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you are inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments section for all to find and see. We wish you a lovely weekend! xo

Ladybug, Ladybug

Yesterday and the day before the outside of our house had hundreds of ladybugs all over it! The girls came in super excited to have discovered them and insisted that I "come and see them right away". I could not believe my eyes when I went outside and saw so very many of them! I'm not sure that I had ever seen that many of them in one spot before in my life! Photographing them was very tricky as they are super fast, and just about the time that the camera would focus on one it would either be out of the frame or it would fly away. What a gift from Mother Nature to have so very many ladybugs calling our sweet old farmhouse home for those two days! xo

This Morning

Late this morning we headed out on a walk to pick up the car from the mechanic. Dave had dropped it off yesterday, and since it was going to be a nice day today we said we'd happily walk to pick it up whenever it was ready. As we were working on lessons this morning we got the call that the car was all set. We finished up what we were doing and set out on our adventure. The sky was blue, the colors on the trees were amazing and there were many, many treasures found along the way. We had a wonderful time walking and talking and seeing things that we don't normally get to see when we drive by. It was a glorious day for a walk, and while it's crazy how much the car cost to fix the memories that were made during that walk are truly priceless. xo
