Hello there, 

It's Tuesday and it's been dreary for a couple days now, but I don't mind too much.  As our wee family has been ever so busy as of late, it's nice to have a couple days to lounge about and do things at a slower pace.  For me that means, taking the time to cook a fancy dinner or two, get caught up on a couple DIYs around the house, and maybe even bake something delicious....and yes, have a Netflix marathon of PLL once the kiddos go to bed.    

Anyhow, despite the grey skies, this is my favorite time of year.  Once the weather warms, the boats are back out in the lake in my neighborhood, the bikers are out with their bikes cycling up the mountainous roads, and the walkers are out with their pups for some fresh air.  I for one love a sunny afternoon of kayaking or laying out by the lake with my two kiddos.  So please Mother Nature, bring on the sun once again!  Of course, in reality there are plenty of chores and work to be done before I live the life of leisure, hehe.

So with that, I wish you a terrific Tuesday.  Here's to taking a moment or two to do things at a slower pace.

Love Bunches, 


  1. Your boys are so grown up now. The pics are adorable and I love your bicycle print dress and straw hat combo. Perfect for the sunny weather. I wish I had more time to take things at a slower pace. It always seems so hectic around here xx

  2. You and your family are so adorable (and adorably color coordinating without being too matching!) And how cute is that print on you? Enjoy life at a more deliberate pace! :)

  3. I need that dress you're wearing! I LOVE Modcloth! :)

  4. You are such a cutie pie. I love the daisy brooch with this bicycle dress. Perfect for summer! <3

  6. That dress has such a whimsical print! I imagine it would be just too cute wearing it while cycling. Also such a cute background for photos! You and your little guy look so cute

  7. Aw, your boys are so cute. :) The older one looks like he has an heir of rebellion in the first photo, like a very young James Dean, except with a lollipop stick hanging out of his mouth. Haha.

    I have a weakness for anything bicycle print, too. Adorable.

  8. Hello cheerful friend. That dress is very nice on you, and your boys are so cute! Here's to sunny days.

  17. Thanks for your last comment dear Marisa! I really didnt like Las Vegas and I think you are absolutely right not wanting to go there :) I discovered to many wonderful places in the US but Vegas really was the weirdest one and I felt so terrible in this city. Anyhow, it was an experience :)
