another use for those crazy wine corks...

i want to share one of my favorite vendors with you.

Miss B!... at Besotted Brand
she has a blog, a shoppe and also an ETSY shoppe.

occasionally she will offer unmounted stamps at a reduced price. 
i love most everything she does, so when i had the opportunity to purchase her
entire mini monogram collection at the unmounted deal price, i jumped on it!

when the monogram initials arrived,  i cool would it 
be to mount them onto some of  our wine corks?

such a perfect "pairing"!

i poured a glass of  Cabernet  and went to work!

i just used a little touch of tacky glue!

i am finally able to attend one of your parties!  i'm so excited!

pop some champagne!

2028? Go Holland!

while Missy F. and Allison S. were collecting shiny 

medals for swimming in London town...

Holland and Daddy are ready for her first swimming lesson!

...there was new kid in the pool!
 (her Mama signed her up for lessons awhile ago.) the timing,
a sweet coincidence, given the current events
in the sports world! 

Daddy held on! she loved every minute of it!

she started walking a week ago... it's time to swim! 

Go team U.S.A.!


(the U.S. Olympic diving trials were held here
in June! these are pretty special waters.)

a healthy reminder {week four}...hydrate!

i am making a conscious effort to keep hydrated!

now... down to less than 2 cups of coffee per day.

soda pop is pretty much out of my life. i have replaced  it with

San Pellegrino or Perrier on the weekends.  

.:: read about the benefits of adding just a few sliced lemons! ::.

what a difference a week makes!
the ankle swelling from an all day desk job is almost gone!

let the new week shine!

i was just thinking...

" the blogship"

...1 universe
9 planets
204 + countries
7 seas...

...this one invisible vehicle...holds so many brilliant and beautiful hearts.

i am amazed each and every time i jump on. 

together, we keep the faith!
