Tuesday's Love and I'm Better Off Without Lists...

Love List...

  • Jillian calls somersaults...swirly whirls.  No explanation on why I love this is needed.  
  • The approaching long Chicago with the kids.  Can't wait.
  • Today was Jillian's last day of her first year of preschool.  She loved her school year and I love watching her grow and learn.
  • Tomorrow night Jillian has an end of the year preschool program.  They will be singing farm themed songs.  She has been telling me about her "singing test" for weeks.  We found a jean jumper.  Add in some pink flannel and you can imagine my girl's version of a farm girl.
  • Ben has been working on our new deck and it is just about done.  We have a new 500 square foot outdoor living space to enjoy each and every day.  I'll share some photos sometime soon.  We are currently working on our anti-mosquito plan.  They are not welcome in our new space.
  • Homemade popsicles.  We've been eating them as fast as I can make them.
  • My perennials are coming in heartier and bigger than ever before.  I love to see floral beauty with no work!  Ideal!  Not to mention, I have some annuals that returned again...for the third year!  I have no idea why.
  • Myles had a lengthy discussion with Ben tonight about wanting to work with him when he gets older.  He told Ben that he wants to work together so they can spend all of their time together.  Adorable.
  • You know that feeling when you find that perfect item that you have looked for for years...and it is on clearance?!?  Yeah, I had that happen last week.  Awesome.  My dining room thanks Pier One for this awesome happenstance.
  • It's Farmer's Market season.

I'm Better Off Without List...
  • This super annoying dripping noise outside my window after a huge thunderstorm last night.  Drip, drop, Rat, Tat, Tat.  So. Annoying.  I never went back to sleep.  
  • Tonight we received a letter asking if we would ever want to sell our house...because they would want to buy it.  I suppose it a bit harsh to put this on this list, but we have never even thought of selling our "forever home" that we have put so much work into (and continue to).  I kinda just wish we had never received the letter, so I would not even have the idea of moving cross my mind...


  1. Adorable picture - so excited for the last day of school! And as for the letter, I would take it as an awesome compliment and push it from your mind :)

  2. Oh, Farmer's Market season! I love it as well. Just the opportunity to shake the hand that grows my food is enough. But then you throw in the fact that it's tastier, heartier foods that last longer than the expensive grocery store produce and you get my favorite part of spring and summer! And I agree wholeheartedly with Kerri...the letter is an enormous compliment!

    1. I completely agree with every single reason why Farmer's Markets are amazing. :)

  3. I also think you should take the letter as a compliment. That means someone is admiring all your hard work and they are jealous of it. They want to live in the "forever" home that you have created. How amazing that someone who isn't close to you loves your home that much and wants it. :-) Be proud, it means you have great taste.


Go ahead! Don't be shy...leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
