Snowy Days in Minnesota

Who doesn't love a great day in the snow. The snowy days are even more fun after being away for 4 months in the tropics of the Pacific Northwest. :)

We had a great morning making some art! I have been working on selling things here in Minnesota, furniture, random things - clearing out the closets! All at the same time, having fun with my boys and my girl, doing some art projects with the blank canvases that were in storage. It's always good to use the things that sat in storage way too long! Now that we are moving from this home why not, right? :)

I do love this home. I love my neighbors. I can breathe in this space, it is so peaceful, so relaxing. I see my boys thrive here, they play outside, they play in the snow, we watch the squirrels and the birds in the 100 year old oak trees out back. There is something so beautiful and simple about the life we live in this home. Family, church, sunny days at the baseball parks, play. I loved every minute of building this home, planning it, love my neighbors, love my family here, love the beautiful state of Minnesota that has been my home the past fifteen years! This home is a beautiful haven of a home that I absolutely love! Sometimes people assume when there is a YES to something, that it means no to everything else. IT'S JUST NOT THE CASE. I love Minnesota, love this home. Always have always will. I don't know the plans, but God does! What a sweet time we are having here after four months away, just hanging as a family while daddy goes to work. Watching Christmas movies, playing in the snow, doing art projects, selling what is left here. It's all good!

So much fun watching Andrew be art director today, he had a vision for these two canvases and his younger siblings implemented it. They were delighted to take part. "Favorite, favorite" Annabel kept saying, she loved making art with her brothers.

Merry Christmas everyone.

You are loved.
