Baby Steps

My husband and I have been going through old boxes lately...attempting to get rid of stuff. While doing so, we came across this little treasure from my childhood. It was a very special gift and means more to me now than it ever did back then. I'm so glad I kept it! I was thinking (now that it's almost April) that this would be a great motto for me this year! As a family we've witnessed a lot of great things come to pass for us this past year and maybe this coming year we can build upon those dreams one small step at a time. What do you think? Do you have any BIG dreams you're working on? Fill me in, I'd love to hear! xoxo,

It may be awhile...

before I get my hands on a set of these.
But I'll be ok, as long as I don't drop my tongs in the bottom of the washer again. :)

Boutique Nights.

These cake pops were my fave!
A few months ago I was trying to think of a way to get rid of all of my old market products, as well as test my new designs to see what kind of response they would get before market. I noticed on a few blogs that people were hosting boutiques in their homes. Their concept was a little different, but the idea was the same. So began my boutique nights. My mother was so generous and brave to be the first to host and then my sister-in-law Betsy hosted another for me last weekend. Best. Idea. Ever. Both were a success! :)
Because my new patterns were in the mix you don't get to see pics of the products yet (sorry) but I will make you super duper hungry with shots of the incredible food Betsy whipped up! She's so fantastic...I think I'll keep her! ;)
It was so fun to mingle with all of the women at both parties and it's even more exciting getting those emails of your (already) finished products! I love it!
Thank you everyone for your support!

Never grow up.

I'm not sure what it is about having a new little one on the way but somehow it changes everything in our home environment. We appreciate things so much more. We get scared a little more of what the future holds. And we just want to be with our family all the time. Life is moving fast and every night when I set the table I wonder how on earth we made it this far. But oh, we're happy, we are so happy to just have each other. I hope you are all happy too!
