I’ve been meaning to try this magical potion since we started carrying it last year and for the first time in a loooong while I finally have smooth feet!     For many years I’ve used a pumice stone, pedi brush and lots of lotion in efforts to keep my feet looking their best but to no avail they always remained rough… especially my heels ~ that is until now!  Here is how the transformation .

While looking over the last year of photos on my Instagram feed, you can tell my most favorite seasons are fall and spring.  Of course I also love summer and some parts of winter too, however my photos don’t seem to show it as much. It’s the gorgeous changes of the trees during these seasons that make my neighborhood walks so full of beauty. That and the stunning sunlight warming up brisk mornings and .

So… I hardly every blog about movies but the small summer release, The Way Way Back was too delightful not to chat up a bit. Steve & I saw it on a whim after deciding we didn’t want to spend a 90 degrees evening at home without power and it really brightened our night.  I must disclose dramadies are my favorite genre and it’s a delicate balance to do it right, but I feel .

I spent the bulk of my Memorial Day weekend whipping our yard into shape for the summer.  Sadly our two furry friends were of no help – besides offering comic relief throughout the afternoon.  I captured some of the moments with my iphone & used the camera bag app to make them more colorific  or age them back to the 70's… all while listening to a great Andy Stanley Podcast.     Well, after .

  First Mary Engelbreit Home Companion, now Cottage Living too?  Apparently I'm in the minority when it comes to magazine subscriptions since my two favorite are no longer available.  So sad.  Since I'm in the market for some new monthly reads…what magazines do you read for a little inspiration?

catching fireflies – a summer’s delight
This lovely article titled Catching Fireflies from Metro Parent caught the attention of one of our crew and I thought I’d share it with you.
