Simply Adored

This little girl has stolen our hearts. 
The perfect way for Uncle Alex to celebrate his birthday.
The perfect way for Aunt Mimi to spend any day.

Being around this precious blessing inspired me to create a few baby cards. 

I hope you all are having a Happy Sunday with someone that you adore.

***on a crafty note***The sweet vintage images I used on these cards were purchased for a wonderful etsy shop Skip along designs.  There are many other images to choose from--stop by if you get the chance :)

Two Girls on an Adventure

From the pictures in my last post I am sure you can see I had a wonderful time at the beach.  I could not have asked for a better week.  Our home for the week was beautiful as were the sand, surf and the sun.  We did have some rain however it came in the evening as to not interrupt our time in the sun.  The weather channel promised sun and they did not disappoint--they also promised that by Friday it would turn chilly and windy.  We were hoping they would be mistaken but no they were correct with that forcast too.  By Thursday night my skin had soaked up lots of sun (maybe a little too much as it began to feel hot and tingly) Heidi was happy with her tan as well so we decided to leave one day early and go on an adventure.  In our travels on the way to the beach, I noticed a sign leading the way to Leesburg Virginia--the home of two amazing shops, The Cottage and Lucketts.  Each of these shops have been visited by my friend, Joyce who shared with me wonderful pictures of the treasures tucked inside their walls.  I longed to visit--now was my chance.  Heidi also spied a sign for a large outlet mall not far from the Leesburg exit.  And so the adventure began.  We had google mapped our destination and for extra support plugged in the GPS.  We were confident.  Except for traveling on the Capital beltway (which I am sure shaved several years off both of our lives) we had a great trip and arrived safely in Leesburg.   The Cottage was as amazing as I had imagined....

And there are no words for Lucketts(except for maybe WOW)--I will let my pictures say it all......

The last photo I will share in today's post is the back seat of our car after our little adventure was over.....
I am wondering if I can somehow convince Alex that all of these bags are just really part of my luggage :)

Down by the Sea

Sometimes opportunities arise that are so amazing and unexpected that they can only be considered a gift from God.  It has been several years since I have gone on vacation--Oh I have been on overnight trips but not on an honest to goodness "real" vacation.  The kind where you sit by the shores edge and just let the world go by.  
When my very best friend, Heidi, suggested that I come along to the beach with her my first response was "oh that would be wonderful but I just can't"  Who would watch Drew, who would take care of the dogs, and truly it really was not in the budget right now.  She then explained to me that the beach house was already paid for and I would be coming along to keep her company.  I almost didn't know what to say --a week with my best friend at the beach just us girls was almost too good to be true.  All the little details were worked out so I will be headed to the Outer Banks Saturday morning.   
I am sure that I will have many stories and pictures to share upon my return. I am so thankful for this opportunity and can hardly wait to spend the week enjoying Gods creation and a very special friendship.

I Love You This Much

If this little doll could talk I think she would be saying "I love you this much!!"  Don't you think?  I named her Lucy and she is the latest doll that has been added to my etsy shop.  She was a fun doll to make as the finished size is 18 inches. 
Lucy's sweet feet are large enough to fit into socks made for a newborn baby so I just could not resist purchasing these "Mary Jane" socks to add to the charm of this baby doll.
Everybody needs a friend so meet Adeline......

Since this post is about Love I thought I would share a few fun pictures that I took this week of the Love at my house.

One last picture. I am definitely in LOVE with this little girl....

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend filled with LOVE.
