"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

The toddler is long gone.
I love toddlers.

Five years.
Where oh where did the time go?!

Helping with all the farm chores. 
And critters.
And even your Mommy n Daddy!

Oh well...
No matter the season or your age or occupation...
You'll always be Momma's baby!

Happy Birthday to my "beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

My Hometown

I've long wanted to peek behind the garden gates and doors,

 and lace curtained windows of the gorgeous homes in my town.
 The architecture is awesome and intriguing 
 Just driving the back alleys is delightful...

 The old spring houses and stables
 and even a long abandoned shoe repair shop!

complete with old signs and shoe forms still in the window.
I finally got my chance... 
The town museum hosted a home n garden tour a few weeks back.
It was gorgeous and so inspiring. I especially treasured the little details.

Wish you were here to poke around with me!
