{pretty, happy, funny, real}

taking a moment to capture contentment and joy in every day life

Spring flowers

a new shower curtain

our first remodeling project is done and the results make me happy!

new tile, new paint, new vanity, new mirror

morning devotions around our cradle to cross wreath

the opportunity to work the Compassion table at the Rock and Worship Roadshow 

I have no idea what this is about, but this is how she practiced her violin yesterday

and this one stood on top of a box

For dinner I made a casserole called "Supper Surprise" (that's really the name on the recipe). When I went to get the pasta, I realized I didn't have enough of one kind. I'm trying really hard to used up what's in the pantry, so I pulled out 4 different kinds of pasta (including jumbo shells!) and cooked them all together. 

We got to go cross country skiing this past weekend, which made me happy. But every time we ski, my Raynaud's syndrome flares up and makes me uncomfortable for a bit. Thankfully it doesn't last too long.

Now that the first bathroom project is done, it's time to move on to the second one. This one is much larger and there's quite a bit more work to do.

I'm linking up with Like Mother, Like Daughter

  1. You are making me itchy to start my spring cleaning and painting! And I love the violin picture with her in the laundry basket! Those are the best moments to capture, aren't they?

  2. Pretty bath redo- I love the wall color.

    1. Thanks, I'm thinking of using that color again in the master bathroom.

  3. Lovely shower curtain!! Your spring flower photos are so gorgeous! :) Where did you purchased that cradle to cross wreath!? I've been really wanting one!


    1. There is a waiting list for them - they are handmade by a teenager in Canada. It's worth the wait, and worth the cost (in my opinion). You can enter your info on this website, and you'll be notified when some are available.

      I love that you can use it for more than one holiday.

  4. Jealous of your spring!! Still cold and snowy here. The bathroom looks great!

  5. That cradle to cross wreath - what a cool idea!

  6. Beautiful flowers! Love your "funny"! A girl's got to get in character to play!
