Easter at the E's

Easter isn't Easter unless you go to the E's house in Akron.  I have hunted for lots of eggs in the E's yard...and sometimes even came home with a prize duckling or two.  It was lovely to get this photo from my mom, showing that they are still enjoying Easter with the E's...and of course the table looks gorgeous.  Wish I was there.

Egg Fun

We had a blast dying eggs with buds. P couldn't wait to get home and eat them. She cried when she realized they weren't chocolate. Today, inspired by this post, we had fun transforming the carton into a wreath.

Happy Easter

Funny Confession #203

While rocking my uggs, I spotted these feet at school pickup. Can you believe how fabulous?!? I can't confirm 100%, but very good odds she arrived by bike.

A few things that caught my eye today


HVK, I think of you every time I pass this corner.

Guest Post

Its been a long time since I have had a guest post.  I'm thrilled to share this one, from Z$.  I hinted that I'd love for her to report back on the TS concert.  She delivered.  Enjoy.  Be sure to reply to her question.  I don't have the "circle one" app working, so maybe just submit a comment.

I think I may have been a bit skard of all the loud noise and lights...but overall i probably would have felt lucky.  Maybe a little old too.  And of course I would always remember it and I'd be so thankful that I had such a cool mom.  I'd also know somewhere in my heart that my mom probably learned to be cool from her little sister...


Have you ever seen a lovelier downspout?

Pretty Spread

Someday I'd like to host a fete and offer a platter like this for guests to nibble on.  Spotted this lovely creation here.


Have you ever seen a mag spread more gorgeous than T&C April 2013?  Bonnie E, are you still out there reading this blog?  I bet you want to crawl into these pages...

Funny Confession #202

Maybe I wear the furry hat more than P does. Maybe that made me feel guilty...and maybe we bought another.  Have I mentioned its chilly here?


Birdie sent us this book, and we read it every.single.night.  Partly because we like it, and partly because our stuff (including kids books) has still not arrived and cleared customs so our book selection is tired minimal.
Well, on the last page the book claims that the story is based on truth (or at least legend), and occured in a town called Kinderdijk (named as a result of this story - where a kitty saves a baby in a flood).

Today we daytripped over to Kinderdijk to see it for ourselves.  The kids were on the lookout for Katje the Windmill Cat.  We didn't see Katje, but we did see (and tour) some amazing windmills.  It.was.not.warm.
