On Halloween Eve

Pumpkin carving outside on a glorious autumn day truly makes for the most fabulous of treats! xo

{This Moment} On The Scale

{This Moment} - A single  photo 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 last end of October and a very happy Halloween to those who celebrate! xo

Hand Knit By Grace

Grace finished her first big project for knitting class today! She made this gorgeous cowl in exactly six weeks. Originally, she had set out to make a scarf, but when Miss Janet showed her what a cowl was last week she decided to go with that option instead. It came out incredibly gorgeous and Miss Janet was super impressed with the quality of all of her stitches, but most especially with how straight her stitches were when she was binding off. Well done, Grace! We are so very proud of how hard you worked on this project and how truly beautiful it turned out! You have a true talent! xo

For Michaella

Yesterday we spent the first part of the day in Hudson honoring the daughter of a friend of Dave's who passed away almost four years ago. For the last few years the family has held a high heel dash and walk in her honor, and while we've always wanted to attend we had not been able to do so until this year.

After the high heel dash and the walk we returned to Hudson High for the final part of the day- the balloon release. Between the speech her father gave, the sight of everyone with their balloons, and the song that played while the balloons ascended, I found myself absolutely reduced to tears. Although I had not had the honor to meet this young woman, as a mama my heart absolutely aches for this family and the hole left in their hearts as a result of Michaella's sudden passing.

We stayed until we could no longer see the balloons and then made our way quietly back to the car. We shall carry the day and that moment in our hearts forever and we look forward to participating in this tribute for years to come. xo
