Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler

I love summertime, for so many reasons. High on my list of summertime-loves is all the fruit that’s in season! Yum. And I adore peaches. A couple weeks back I made this peach cobbler; and we loved it! I actually cut the recipe in half, because I only had 3 peaches on hand. (I know, not … Continue reading

Counter Canisters

Counter Canisters

Somebody stop me. I could really label everything in our house : ) Especially with Abbie, and thinking ahead to all the new words she’ll be learning in these coming years…I could easily rationalize away labeling so many more things ; ) This weekend, my counter canisters got an upgrade! I created their labels in my Silhouette … Continue reading

3 Months

3 Months

I can’t believe we’ve been blessed to be parents for a quarter of a year now. Abbie turned 3 months old last week! Here’s her monthly pictures of her short life so far… This is newborn Abbie, still swaddled up in her hospital bed. The pictures speak for themselves from here on out; here she … Continue reading

Fourth of July Weekend

Fourth of July Weekend

So here we are, a day later than planned – but strict schedules are for people without young babies ; ) We visited Stephen’s family this weekend and it was wonderful! Saturday morning we went to Ikea. I have fun projects planned for several of the items we got there – hopefully they’ll be future blog … Continue reading

“My First 4th!”

“My First 4th!”

Last Christmas, my thoughtful husband, Stephen, gave me a Silhouette. I didn’t even know it existed until I owned it, but it’s turned out to be a wonderful gift! At first, I used it to make birthday cards and such, but just this week I got the interfacing I needed to cut fabric with it. … Continue reading
