earth’s best sundays | birthday edition

34 trips around the sun.

More sun warmed berries.

Homemade ice cream cake.

A couple of my favourite meals.

A handful of wildflowers picked by my loves.

A pretty little pottered mug.

A walk through the pasture and along fence rows.

Feeling a little like Anne Shirley dreaming about the possibilities.

Kid playing in the old claw foot tub.

Oh my.

It was another nice one.

just a smattering

Excuse my absence from this space. 
Our computer died a few weeks ago so I have had little to no access to my photos.
I swear, if I wasn’t married to the IT guy, I wouldn’t even have one of these fickle creatures.
So just a smattering of photos, bits, and bobs, and a sincere hope to return to this space on a regular basis soon.
I am planning on a little Facebook detox.
Nothing dramatic or final.
A mere deactivation of my account.
Just to see how it feels.
I am sure I will be back (I always go back), but here’s hoping…
Just need to tie up some lose ends.
If you’d like to contact me, you can find me here, or my email info up in the right hand corner of this space.
Better yet, lets exchange letters or recipes snipped from magazines.
I hope to take the time I spend lolly-gagging on Facebook and finally answer some of those kind and heartfelt emails that frequent my inbox and haunt me in those last wee hours of the day.

good news

Today is the day the Sacred Pregnancy website goes live!  It is the companion website to go with Annie Daulter’s newest book to be released May 1st (available for pre-order on Amazon).  A couple months ago, I read that she was seeking people to review her other latest book Naturally Fun Parties for Kids co-written with Heather Fontenot of Rhythm of the Home.  She quickly got back to me asking if I would be interested in reviewing her other books and also wondered if I would be interested in doing a regular contribution of my favourite links.

And so bits + bobs – a collection of pretties was born (in case you’re wondering, yes, they spelled my last name completely wrong, but I have let them know).  I can’t tell you how honoured I am to be a small part of such a lovely and inspiring website and project.  Annie is delightful and kind and I urge you to check out all her offerings.  I will be writing reviews for her other books Ice Pop Joy,  The Organic Family Cookbook as well as Naturally Fun Parties for Kids during this month, but let me tell you, they are wonderful.

Oh, and since we’re sharing good news, I found out a few days ago that my article query for the Rhythm of the Home Book was accepted!  I can’t tell you how excited I am.

Oh and one more good thing!  Our wee nephew was brought into the world last night and we can’t wait to meet him.
