We live in the country. Spencer had just commented that it had been a long time since somebody had hit our mailbox(like two years). He didn’t knock on wood. Less than a week later, our mailbox was obliterated. They did a good job! Took out the box, post and all. Mail strewn in the ditch.
It was on purpose. Obvious from the tracks. Who are we to deny teenagers their fun?! Continue reading
Spencer and I went to the Frist on our anniversary trip to Nashville. We pretended to be artists while we were there.

I bought this nautical fabric thinking I was going to make myself a blouse with it. The fabric had such a nice feel to it. Upon a closer look at home, I decided the print repeated itself too often. Since I didn’t want three boats stacked on top of each other on the front of my shirt, I changed my mind and made pj’s for the boys. Continue reading
