Sassafras Lass

I am dying for this paper by Sassafras Lass! I don't know exactly why, but I LUV it. I think it is soooooo sweet and darling. I can't wait till it comes out! I am sure that once I get it (and I will) I will be unable to cover it up with anything. I think it is just perfect the way it is!

The promise of Spring

Spring is not here quite yet, but there are signs of it everywhere! I have bulbs blooming in my yard producing fragrant blossoms that hint of what is to come. I love that even when the weather may appear bitter and bleak, these tell tell signs of Spring are all around us reminding us that something new is just around the corner. Even when it may seem like the season we are currently in is going to last forever, it too will come to an end and new life will emerge. This time of year symbolizes a very important spiritual lesson for me. One that is easy to forget when times are hard. These little delights could easily be over looked if I chose to focus on what I can predominantly see, like barren trees, empty fields, the lack of colorful blossoms in my garden. Instead I chose to seek out the tiny treats that God has placed on this Earth that remind me that life is ever changing and a new season is fast approaching!

I wanted to include this photo of a quite amazing sunset that my husband captured. Isn't it breathtaking? It looks as though the horizon is going to catch fire at any moment! Gorgeous!

Cartooning around!

How fun is that? I made this over at It is a super cool site that allows you to make "scrapbook" pages using templates of from scratch. It is a lot like using image editing software, but it's free! Gotta love that.

Mmm, mmm! good

Tonight I made my first attempt at making Carnitas. I got this recipe from a friend after tasting hers and loving it. It was not as hard to make as I had previously thought it might be and ended up tasting delicious! This will be on my list of faves from now on!

This is a little something my kids cooked up for us. They wanted to make us think that they were sleeping in the same bed together, so they put wigs on top of balls and stuffed the bed with their sparring gear. They were so excited for us to discover the two of them sleeping "together"! These kids crack me up!

Gorgeous little pretties

I saw these pretty little goodies while perusing the web. Uh, they make me drool and feel all warm and cuddly inside! I love the soft colors and beautiful textures. Enjoy the yummies.
