The first page focuses on our new role as Grandparents, and the joy that it is bringing to our lives. Could anything be sweeter than holding that new bundle, wrapped up like a dolly but ever so much alive and breathing and full of sweetness? We are getting ready for a visit next month from our living doll and are buying out the stores in preparation for her coming. Saturday we went to Target and restricted ourselves to three things, a play pen, a high chair, and a really fun toy. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait.
The next page is a tribute to our home, one of my favorite places in the world. I can't explain how much peace I feel in this lovely place that has been my home for the past fifteen years, easily the one place I have lived the very longest compared to anywhere. My children love this place too. I'm so glad. It holds so many special family memories. How blessed we are to have a sanctuary from the world.
Looking at the outdoor picture is prompting me to start planting flowers. I think the frost threat is over so I am going to begin adding some annual color. I know the azaleas, dogwoods, and rhododendrons will soon be putting on a show, but I think they need a little help from me.
