The Bride and Groom

Fun Valentine's Day treat that I've always wanted to try making:) Pretty cute!

Winter Walk in the Woods

It's amazing that on a February afternoon it's almost 50 degrees outside and there's not snow on the ground. We went for a super hike today. I love the sound of rushing water. When we were building our house, we lived in a small rental here in town near the local cascades. My great, great grandparents had once lived in the same house. I would fall asleep each night listening to the rushing water, and wake up to the same soothing sound. I would love to hear that sound daily! Have often considered buying a small tabletop fountain just to have the sound close to me:)
Anyway, the hike was just what I needed to get out of the house for a little bit. It's amazing what wandering through the woods, with the sun shining, looking at God's creation, can do to you. A nice pick~me~up.

Tonight I got a text from Ariel, my daughter~in~law, asking if I saw the ring around the moon. I thought it looked so neat, I had to try to get a picture. I am not too skilled at night~time photography, but did get a shot. Course it is always brighter and more beautiful in "real life".
