The Gallery: Planes, trains and automobiles

Even though we love to travel, this summer we will be staying home for various reasons, so the only "traveling" we've been/will be doing is by car :)

Last Sunday I took this photo, and it made me realize how lucky I am to like rainy days - as during the summer we get to enjoy storms almost daily - and find beauty in our day even if all we have is "liquid sunshine"!

The Little Bliss List - Grateful

Every Friday, the Little Bliss List provides a chance for us to celebrate the little things that brought us hope and happiness this week. I do believe when we focus on the sweet stuff of life, the sweet stuff multiplies. And by sharing those small gifts in our lives, we help others notice the gifts in theirs. 
Here is my Grateful list!: 

  • We are about to finish our first week of summer vacation - how relaxing. . .
  • Our Princess attended summer camp this week and it was a success!
  • I was able to help out Mr. Wonderful this week, it was nice to be able to do stuff for him  
  • Our new house is coming along!!! Hopefully by the end of the month we'll be able to move in!!!
  • The great summer rains we've had so far have made everything emerald green, lush and colorful - just the way I like it :)

The Gallery: Food

Summer where we live means heat and the best way to beat it is to be near the water, 
and that's just what we like to do! 
The food is cooked from scratch with wood found nearby-carne asada and quesadillas, YUM!
A grilled quesadilla with roasted salsa and avocado - Delish!
And for dessert - of course - we had to have roasted marshmallows!!! 
We used sticks from a fallen branch :)
Waiting - BARELY - long enough for the marshmallow to cool before biting into it :)
Great times, great memories - thanks to Mr. Wonderful for make it possible!

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Heart 2/31

Today I'm sharing a heart I made with wire; after shaping the wire into a heart I wrapped it with fabric scraps - from my ever growing pile - glued at the start and end with my trusty hot glue gun :) 
Since I love sparkle I added some sparkly beads here and there and it is now hanging in my craft room :)

31 Hearts - Day 1

An almost childish drawing of a heart, first sketched with pencil on watercolor paper 
and then retraced with washable markers and filled with doodlings I usually do when talking on the phone :) 
Sorry about the poor quality of the photo - did not realize it until I uploaded it.
