We've Been Flocked!

Nothing like a flock of bright pink flamingos hanging out on your lawn on such a cold, grey, rainy day! Thanks Walton family for the lovely surprise this morning! In the words of Emma: "It was a really nice treat of them to flock us!" We completely agree! xo

Happy May Day!

Happy May Day from our family to yours! xo

Song On May Morning
Now the bright morning star, day's harbinger
Comes dancing from the east, and leads with her
The flow'ry May, who from her green lap throws
The yellow cowslip and the pale primrose.
Hail, bounteous May, thou dost inspire
Mirth and youth and warm desire!
Woods and groves are of thy dressing, 
Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing.
Thus we salute thee with our early song,
And welcome theem and wish thee long. 
-John Milton

{This Moment} On Costume Day

{This Moment} A 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 below. We wish you a wonderful end of April and a very Happy May Day on Sunday! xo

Some black paper, some colorful chalk, a bit of paint and a touch of glitter made for a super fun morning lesson about the four different types of galaxies this morning! xo

After six months of searching we finally managed to find a china cabinet! Just when we had given up hope of finding what we were looking for Dave happened upon this one the other day. Other than it being a wee bit taller than we would have liked it's absolutely perfect! 
It even has a drawer for our silver. It doesn't fit all of it, so we still need the box my parents gave us, but it fits the key pieces which is absolutely lovely. 
Just shy of ten months later and the last two boxes are finally unpacked! It's wonderful to finally have a home on the first floor for all of our wedding china and other special dishes. An instantly beloved piece, it is truly the perfect addition to our dinning room. It will surely be loved for years (and perhaps even generations) to come! xo

Other Plans

Clearly, someone has decided to foil my laundry folding plans. xo
