       Happy New Year Girls!

Just back from a week with the little guys in NC and loved every minute of it!  Both are as sweet as can be.

Irie is 10 months and taking his first steps while Silas is a rough and tumble two, almost three year old talking up a storm.  Like me, he loves his time alone.  One morning I asked if I could sit with him in the big chair and he said very nicely, "I'd like to be alone Bella".  (okay guy, I understand)
This little one reminds me of his Papa at this age.  Super sweet and he adores his big brother.

And this one?  Loads of energy, smart and fun!   Just like his Mama!

Anyhow, I came home to very little Christmas decor since I knew I wouldn't be home until the eleventh hour.  Literally. 

I recently framed three vintage French letters for the buffet wall in the kitchen and I love the look and feel they give the space.  Simple, serene and sophisticated.  I wonder what the letters are about in the beautiful script on handmade paper...

Lot's of glare going on but hope to remedy that with a course I'm taking to figure out what all the bells and whistles are for on my Nikon.

It's always good to get back home.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope this year is a happy, fulfilling one for you.

So glad you had a good time with those precious children...you must be so proud! Your Christmas decor looks fine to me...at least you have Paper Whites...I kept meaning to get some and kept forgetting.

I love that pretty cabinet of yours and the framed letters are just beautiful, what a great idea to keep them safe and display them, too!

Take care, Roberta!

The little ones are darling! Our grandsons are 2 and just turned 4 yesterday...it is so fun and exhausting!

I love the letters, they look perfect where you have them.

Hi Roberta! What a sweet comment from your son, almost 30 years ago! Sweet little memories to keep.
Yesterday my son said to me..."You are the BEST mum I have ever had!".......ha ha ha, I asked him if he has had a lot of mums besides me :)

Love, Carina
