Memorial Day

The kids and I potted flowers on our backyard deck and then played water games on the trampoline.
It was a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Happy Heart

If I have three minutes I will stop by any 2nd hand store/thrift shop/consignment store I see. Yes, you can get a good deal but for me it's more about finding beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces. I have found the most beautiful antiques in both furniture and accessories for our home this way. Yesterday I literally ran into one shop and found this vintage ginger jar. Filled with hydrangeas from our backyard they make my heart happy.

Kure Beach

We spent three glorious days at Kure Beach with my in-laws, Grandma and Baba Schultz. They flew in from Seattle and stayed at a rental beach house for a long weekend. It was a welcome break from the constant house projects for a few days of relaxation.
Summer and Forrest spent most of their time in this little pool.
I love the ocean view but I love the kids more.

Mother's Day

We woke up to rain which was the best gift. I love the rain. Summer and Forrest wanted me to read their cards out loud but I kept crying. Their heartfelt words and drawings are treasures. Their little cards in their own writing said "my mom can smile as happy as a dolphin", "my mom is happiest when I get home from school", "my mom is special because she is deaf and teaches me sign language", "my mom is pretty as an unicorn". They know their mama well. Best day of the year.

Forrest is 8!

My Forrest turned 8 on May 5th {Cinco De Mayo}
With the recent move, Forrest wanted a simple party. He let me decide what theme this year. Since he's had Cars, Cars: the Movie, Pirate, Super Hero, and Legos themes, it was time to celebrate in the Cinco De Mayo style. He requested a lemon cake from the bakery at Whole Foods. We ate lots of homemade Mexican food and played pin the tail on the donkey game again and again. It was a perfect day.
Forrest is absolutely hilarious and always a good time. I am excited to watch his life unfold from the sidelines. I'm your #1 fan, sweet Forrest.
