  1. Yum, I like the sound of the farmers market visit. How did the pies taste? I think I like peach pie best. I love reading your list and hearing what you're experiencing. Miss you!

  2. I love how you notice all of the simple things in life and show their beauty. Your pictures make fruit look yummier, flowers prettier and children even cuter than what they already are. Love your blog and enjoy reading in weekly. You help me slow down and take notice of the smaller things in life that are so precious!
