I am just amazed at how incredible the weather has been this week. I am equally amazed at how much happier I am and how much more fun we have when it is nice outside! We spent the whole morning and part of the afternoon outside. My friend, Charlotte, brought her three children over. Our oldest four played in the backyard for almost four hours while she and I sat with our babies at our feet. I hung laundry, she knitted. Her baby slept curled up in a blanket, mine was fascinated by the green leaves blowing in the breeze.
We had great conversation about lots of thought provoking things. It was a wonderful morning with our friends. Here are a few pictures. I hope you are enjoying this wonderful weather and spending as much of it outdoors as possible. Fresh air and sunshine is such a mood lifter! View from the master bedroom. Aren't the white curtains framing the trees out the window so pretty? I love sitting on my bed in my room. It is so relaxing and I love looking out these windows. I try to not use my room for any work, only relaxing. I don't fold laundry, do paperwork, or anything else in my room. It is very sparse and I love it that way. Who needs pictures on the walls when you can look out the window at the woods?

Sweet little red shoes on the line.

My favorite red ballet flats. Hmmm, I seem to have a thing for red shoes. :)
I hope your day is wonderful too!


  1. I love the red shoes on the line - tooooo cute! I love days outside, too and I hope to have lots of them with Fall coming. Hopefully the mosquitoes will die in our back yard soon - we have a terrible case of them back there. Anyway, so glad you had a wonderful day. Wish we could get our three boys together!
