highlights and happy things.

"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string." - l.m. montgomery

Highlights and happy things from recently:
+seeing my cousin from Germany for the first time 
+finding an Easter dress 
+telling someone quite honestly that Andy Griffith is my favorite t.v. show (yes that totally happened) 
+snapping pictures of a butterfly in our lilac bush and a bunny in our field 
+eating excessive amounts of clementines and chocolate chunks (best snack ever) 
+my first pair of toms
+holding a newborn baby
+turning up the music just a little louder

  10. love those pictures of the butteflies. and all the pics, of course. hey, Andy Griffith, I Love Lucy, The Waltons, Brady Bunch... all much better than TV nowadays. I pretty much only watch old TV shows. ;)

  11. Love your pictures! So pretty!

  12. your pictures are so gorgeous. and Andy Griffith is amazing... I love black & white shows so much. pretty much most of the older movies in general, like The Sound of Music. :)
