{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}


We took a walk last Saturday, Jonathan and Katie and Euclid and I. It was beautiful all around, from the weather to the scenery to the togetherness, but I thought the late-afternoon light in this pasture was especially lovely.

(I realize many of my pretty things are related to nature. I can’t help it; I live in a beautiful place and it hasn’t been acting very wintry lately. My daughter is lovely and could easily take this spot, but she often fits the happy and funny categories. While I could look at pictures of her all day long, there ARE other things in my life worth documenting, few though they may be.)DCM_7861 (2)


After months of seeing reviews on other blogs, I decided to give Stitch Fix a try. Results pictured below (pants and sweater from Stitch Fix, scarf already a part of my wardrobe). Ignore the fact that selfies just aren’t my thing, pretend you don’t see the need to clean my bathroom, don’t judge the lack of a full-length mirror in my house, and focus on this: I got two nice new additions to my wardrobe without having to go to a store (I HATE shopping). This is a happy thing, indeed (despite the sticker shock this bargain-hunter experienced)!

Butternut squash was not a hit.image


We found these little guys in our bathroom the other day. I am grateful for our central vacuum cleaner, and the trap seems to be doing the trick, but ugh. I hate ants.20150223_135927

Those are the pretty, happy, funny and real moments around here this week. How about you? Head over to Like Mother, Like Daughter and join in the fun!

    Love the shot of your daughter and the squash! So cute :).
    I’m with you with those ants, can’t stand them in the house.

      Thanks, Ruth Anne! I tend to think she’s pretty cute, but I have a biased opinion. 🙂
