    i love your perspective on things! (and can i just say that i’m crazy over that photo of those trees?!!) glad you had a great weekend! xox

  6. I LOVE the colors you wrap
    around your life….creativity
    springs from you like sparks
    from a fire!
    Thanks for the tender cow’s eyes(swoon),
    the trees waving at blue skies,
    your lovely hand and heart,
    wind tickling straw
    and turkeys trying to sort out
    which door to choose:)
    Looks as if Spring has sprung
    in rachel!

  10. I just love your change of scenery! he he he he! How delicious. Hope that you had a wonderful and restful holiday. I am super duper busy relocating. Do I need to even tell you how crazy it is around here right now?? Crazy doesn’t even begin to describe what is going on here. Please keep me in your most positive thought and prayers. I just had to stop by and visit my friend.
    Hope that all is well with you,
