Breaking the Silence

It has been awfully quiet around here lately, so I thought I'd check in to say hi. Most of the silence can be blamed on this little girl.

A little over a week ago she came down with an awful stomach bug that completely wiped her out. And between cleaning up puke, doing load after load of laundry, or rocking her I didn't seem to find time to get on the computer.

Luckily, she started to perk up on Saturday and we decided that after a week we had to get out of the house. A trip to the country to visit her grandparents seemed like the perfect escape. We weren't disappointed; the fresh air, good company, and beautiful almond blossoms did the trick.

Today we are packing up and heading off for a long weekend in the snow, so I'll be back next week. Have a great week!

I'll Be at Houzz

Ugh, I'm awful. Each time I turn on the computer to do, well, anything I end up here, at houzz.com, instead. I have unanswered emails, the taxes are sitting ready for me to do (and you know how I love doing our taxes), I haven't Facebook-ed, Pinterest-ed, or even read a blog in days. It is kind of becoming a problem.

But as we are trying to plan/design our new house (yay!) it is just so fun to look through these photos of beautiful homes and rooms. So I'm officially calling it research and am not going to feel bad about it anymore! Hope your week has gotten off to a good start, I'll leave you with a few photos that have caught my eye.
