This summer, my family had a great big get together. Family from Canada, Arkansas and good old Minnesota descended upon a small resort. . Okay, I make it sound like there were hundreds of us. In reality, when all of us were there, we only totaled 15 people. But amidst the family fun, I discovered… Continue reading Puppy Chow Plus a Twist
On Friday this week, my little sister is graduating from college. This is crazy! I still think it is weird that she can legally drink. (She had a glass of wine at Thanksgiving and it felt so wrong!) Anywhoo… Congratulations Spaulding! I am so proud of you! I love how concerned she looks in this picture! . Now… Continue reading She’s All Growed Up

At the beginning of May I remembered I had some crafting to do, so I started working. I finished two of… Continue reading Homemade Pay It Forward 2012 – #1: Family, Hearts, and the Postal System
My family went to Florida for Spring Break and while we were there we went to a Twins spring training game. I enjoy baseball, but I think the games go a little long. So…I brought my camera (and a book) and these pictures…are just examples of why I love my family! My Mom and Dad…Love… Continue reading Why I Love My Family
