It amazes me how something so ordinary, like shopping at Sam's with your husband for groceries and bringing home a couple bundles of roses, can be extraordinary!
For me, it is those small pleasures that make my life so lovely!
I hope you are having a lovely weekend as well!

Last week I was catching up on Kaari Meng's blog and she was having a little giveaway of mourning buttons. She wrote about her wonderful collection of mourning paraphernalia. It is quite interesting, you should go check it out. So, I entered the giveaway and guess what? Little ole me was one of two winners! I never win anything! This was so exciting, especially after I had the privilege of meeting Kaari at Silver Bella.
A few days later, this great little package arrived in the mailbox! What a treat amongst the bills and junk mail.

Love my mourning buttons! Thanks so much Kaari!

I know it has been awhile since I have posted. I guess time is passing by too quickly.

It has been quite busy here since Christmas. We celebrated two birthdays and my mom came from Colorado for a visit. We had a great time!

Yesterday, the kids had a half day of school so we made the trek down to the Baltimore National Aquarium. We all love visiting it there, especially Chloe---she is such an animal lover.

I know the photos aren't my usual style, but I just had to share because I was having such a grand time taking pictures of these beautiful creatures.

There is a whole other world in the oceans that I find very fascinating.

The vast range of colors and color combinations are so beautiful. I found it so inspiring.

So, join me through this color journey. I hope you enjoy it!

I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend!
