this past weekend we found ourselves at Crabtree Farms once again... there seems to be a magnet for this family that pulls us to those pretty fields... picking strawberries, buying Nasturtiums and seeing what's ripe. I have to say that this is by far my most favorite family outing.... the wholesomeness is unbeatable! It's like there should be some sort of soundtrack it is so harmonious! There is just something about being out and about soaking in the sunshine and seeing the wonders of the world of horticulture. And at this age, it really is so brilliant to see the girls learning about the plant world and enjoying it to its fullest... in fact, I think little Autumn Marie weighed a whopping 3 xtra pounds by the time we drove out of the gate! What can I say, the girl has good taste!
To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.
So, you wanna know about me... I have just discovered kittens.. I love them and I make the cutest Meow of all time. I love to have countless books read to me. I am fearless, I love to test the waters, push the limits. And my favorite word and question of all time is WHY!!!

Quote of the week: I'm puttin' on my dancin' shoes, mom!
The chaos of the everyday with its never ending not enough hours in the dayness has pushed me back to something I once knew and practiced daily... yoga. I have a love and hate relationship with this discipline.... perhaps, it is because it is just that - discipline.
THE READING CORNER
Tea with Sister Anna is a book that I longed and longed for at every trip to Rock Point Books... and now it's finally mine! I love it... it's a vacation every time I crack it open! Thanks, Sister Anna!
