You know you live in Minnesota when:

You have your air conditioning and your heat on in the same day.

And this happens in March.  And April.

That being said, the sky has been clearing and the sun shining and we have been out and about!

I love this picture.  I was just determined to get them to pose in front of the crazy dead tree… they were determined to represent their personalities through the simplest of gestures.

I love how these trees are totally bent in the midst of an unbent forest.

I almost deleted this picture… but then I looked at it a little closer.  It sorta looks like I added texture to it… but it is just natures bokeh.  Love that!

Life is good here.

Blogging is good.

There are SO many fun and exciting things going on but I dont dare say less I jinx myself. 

But the next two months are going to be full of fun posts and maybe even a big giveaway and possibly an appearance or two.

What are you up to?

  4. We Iowans know all about that air condition/heat thing in the same day. I get so frustrated trying to dress my children for the day, sometimes I just have to change their clothes over and over to adjust! Ridiculous, but that’s what we pay for living in the frozen tundra, right?
    Love the Audrey picture…she is too cute!

  5. I love the pic of all three of your kiddos! Thank goodness for being able to be outside again.
    Sounds like you have some exciting things on the horizon! Keep us posted!

  6. You already had me hooked with the pictures, but now I am really curious! What do you have up your sleeve, girl?
