Snow Day

I really wanted to do a *real* post -- you know, some kind of decor thing, and I have plenty of little projects going on, but we got our first "real" snow of the season, and I ended up outside with the kids and my dad:-)

We enjoy our creek all year round, but it definitely takes on a life of its own in the winter.  I braved the single digit temps last evening once the sun went down and went out to capture some "silky" water shots.

The gray kitchen...

Yes, I said "gray." I know, I know, the blue kitchen was *my* thing, but I was ready for a change and since this is all one big open space, I wanted to paint it all the same color.

What my house really looks like...

When I share my house, I always try and make things look as good as possible. I will spend a lot of time just setting up a shot and making sure everything is perfect because I don't think anyone reads this blog to see laundry baskets sitting around or my dirty dishes on the counters.

Valentine French Toast and a blog hop

I really don't do any decorating for Valentine's Day, so I had a hard time coming up with something to do to celebrate the holiday. Then I started to think back to my childhood and to those construction paper pouches we made and decorated at school, which were always filled with valentines from classmates. I think that sweet, child-like spirit is what really epitomizes Valentine's Day for me, so I decided I would do something for my three children. Instead of a paper pouch filled with cards, I made heart-shaped french toast, and I'm sure they will appreciate that a lot more! And since this was a trial run, hubby got to eat this batch:-)
