Hi, Just Checking In!

Just Checking In!

Hi friends! :)

I've been swamped lately... which is a GREAT thing, but it's kept me from writing. So, I thought it's probably time to check in with y'all! Hope you are doing wonderful and enjoying the warm-ish days mixed in with the colder ones. Last week was the first day of Spring, even though it didn't quite feel like it here in Saint Olaf. I know the sunny days and warm breezes are right around the corner, though. I can feel it! 

We were fairly lucky over the winter at our house. We only caught some of the crud that's gone around. For those who know me and my germaphobia, you can guess that I'll be so relieved when we're through the winter germy months and we're all lathering up with sunscreen, heading out to play in the pool, roasting marshmallows by the bonfire, counting lightning bugs, watching the flowers bloom, and complaining about allergy season. LOL!

.... ahhhhh, daydreaming....

Until then, I'll just continue to enjoy bundling up for quick trips outside to the swings and slides at the park, staying cozy in the library, and warming up at the coffee shop. :)

Anyway, enough daydreaming for now. Are you curious what's kept me so busy lately? Let's see... I've been working on my art website/store (, taking care of baby girl, working on projects around the house, chasing after Buddy (and Casey--the grandparents' miniature poodle), helping organize Art in the Park (our 4th annual fine art festival), and a plethora of other odds and ends. I've even managed to make it to the gym a couple of times a week, which hasn't happened since I was in HIGH SCHOOL! EEK! 

In other big news, we finally have an entire set of grandparents living in Iowa! We have been so fortunate to have Gima Dawn with us the past few months, and just over a couple of weeks ago, Grandpa Dave retired and moved to Iowa to join us! He hadn't been in Iowa two hours and we had already put him to "work." Well, Emmajean would call it playing! Let's just say, we can already tell having grandparents in Iowa is AWESOME! (I just wish I could convince my parents to join us, too --wink,wink!!)

Photo cred goes to Gima Dawn for this one! ♥

So it's been busy around here. Life is good, it's filled with love, and I hope yours is, too! 

What have you been up to?

Cheers ♥
