{ inspired by: March 1st, and a pretty blue bleu PacNWest morning! }




that's Mount Rainier outside our bedroom window this morning.

she sits above our neighbor's rooftop. 

Sunday is the day i change the bed clothes.

farewell white flannel !

hello fresh crisp spring and summer white !

 i'm a little early with the transition this year, so

i added a beautiful quilt made by my mom for extra warmth.

 it looks amazing with our grain sack pillow.


on the bed in Chrislyn's old room . . . her room now called "my room" by Holland Grace!



yesterday afternoon, while i was at the Jo Malone counter at Nordstrom, 

i sampled Vanilla Anise. i was immediately inspired to make almond biscotti!





i was up at the crack of dawn baking this morning.

the house smells divine!

i also baked a batch if Ina's oatmeal cookies.  i nixed the cinnamon 

and raisins and opted for organic toasted coconut and dark chocolate chips.

later the biscotti loaves will sliced and toasted.

i baked for a journey ahead.  i'll leave a box of cookies for The Chocolate

Gousse's dogfather and caregiver. this evening, i will deliver a box to my mom and dad.

"and if  i may, call your mom, everybody. i’ve told this [to], like, a billion people, or so.
 call your mom, call your dad. if you’re lucky enough to have a parent or two alive on this
 planet, call ‘em. don’t text. don’t email. call them on the phone. tell ‘em you love ‘em, 
and thank them, and listen to them for as long as they want to talk to you."
J.K. Simmons - Oscar speech

happy March 1st!

hello lovelies!


{ inspired by: friendships 24 /7 }





as most of you know, the month of February brought some unplanned stress.

. . . my Mr D . . . so very ill with his less than perfect perforated appendix.


with

that 

     said . . .



:: oh, i love this image that i found . . . here!



. . . you were here for me!


open 24 / 7 to motivate, share and cheer.



a pretty image . . .

well chosen words at the "right time". . .

here . . . when i woke in the middle of the night, worried about my sweetheart.






. . . so  grateful for the love and support of family and friends.

. . . so blessed by the answered prayers of  f e b r u a r y.

withLove!

i can't think of a better way to focus towards Spring 2015.

i am feeling a project for our "chandy" coming on!
