The Smell of Spring


The best spring smell in the world.


I felt like sticking my whole head into the middle of this lilac bush and just breathing it in.


In fact,  I might have done just that.

I’m pretty sure that heaven smells exactly lilacs.

Shoes on or off in the house?

Shoes on or off in the house?

I understand this may be a regional thing.  Almost everyone I know takes their shoes off when they walk into someone’s house.    I always do, it’s how I was raised and it’s how my kids were raised.   It truly doesn’t bother me in the least if a visitor wears their shoes in my house though, I never ask,  people just take their shoes off around here.   It’s typical to see huge piles of shoes at the doorway when I have family over.

My sister is raising her kids the same way.   She has locker storage in her garage for each member of her family to take off their coats and shoes before they come into the house.  .


I visited my sister a few days ago,  I used the back door because I walked into her house through the garage.   I noticed a small cardboard sign.    This sign was meant for her kids, not her guests, but it was so funny I have to share.


I love the smiley face after the “Thanks.”   I thought this was such a creative reminder for her kids.  They’ve got a fun mom.

The sign didn’t scare me either.   I walked right up those stairs with my shoes on.      I took them off as soon as I got into the house though.      DSC_0152

I kind of like my eyebrows.

Post for Mom



For months my mom has been hounding encouraging me to get back to blogging.   I’m not sure why I stopped,  I guess one day I just did.   I enjoy posting I just haven’t had any burning desire to tell any stories lately although my life has been interesting, busy, and very good.


In honor of my mom on Mother’s Day,  I am posting my first new post in almost four months and I’m going to try to do better from here on out.    


Happy Mother’s Day!
