Valentine's Day

A little late Valentine's post.
this year Mike stayed home with the puppies and school, while I went to my brother and new sister in law's wedding up in Oregon. I almost didn't make it because of the weather, ( I don't think I want to fly in February ever again!) but thankfully I did and the wedding was beautiful! I'm so glad I got to see my brother get married to his new wife.❤️ Now all of us kids in the family are married up, and it feels goood.

favorite things

I always like to document a few of my gifts from each Christmas: 
 a journal and a cities of america calendar both from rifle paper co.

 I love this bkr water bottle!

 books are always in my favorites

 some soft merino wool

and one gift I gave this year was this tote I made using Abi's tutorial. I made one for all the girls on my list (and a couple for me.) They all loved them, so thanks Abi! and I already use mine for everything!

tutorial found here

Our Christmas

A few pictures from our Christmas in Minnesota! 
Most of the two weeks were spent inside because of the very cold temperatures this year, but it was really nice to relax and see (almost) the whole family. It was also Plum's first Christmas, and I think she quite liked it!

Here are the two pictures I remembered to take of our Thanksgiving, for 'there are so many responsibilities on a person's mind when they are keeping house, isn't there?' Or hostessing in my case. Mike's parents came from California for the week, and it was nice to have some family here for the holiday!

We are extra thankful this year, because our Fig had a mystery illness all Thanksgiving week that she is now recovering from! we eventually found out she had a sick kidney and it needed to be removed. We were so worried, but she is now home from the pet hospital and we're thankful that she is feeling better already!

on the north shore

Photos from our family trip on Lake Superior this September:
we stayed in Grand Marais and Beaver Bay, saw lighthouses and waterfalls, hiked, had a campfire, ate lotttts of really good food, had a baby shower for my sister and brother in law-who started foster parenting this fall, and Mike and I also celebrated our 5th anniversary while we were there.
