These days...

Sometimes I feel guilty that I don't write here like I used to. I remember the excitement of creating a recipe for supper after work... now I get excited when supper is on the table in pots and pans and I can sit down to rest:) I tell myself this is a season of life I want to savor- and I don't want to miss out on Caroline's younger years. I can create recipes when I'm old and retired:)

My days are filled to the brim with the normal household/mom tasks and I wouldn't trade it for the world. 

Here is a bit of our lives lately...

 I've been having fun with my sourdough starter. My first sourdough bread!

 Sourdough waffles.

 Caroline's 2 year old photos.

 We had fun making a new play area after Caroline
broke a flower pot she pulled off the bench:)

Our little family of three. I'm one lucky wife and mom.

That's all for now...

Have a wonderful week!



  1. Don't feel guilty, Hope. The days and years go by so fast (trite but true) and you are doing exactly what you need to right now. You have a beautiful family! And I've been having fun playing with sourdough too!
