good good things

This snapshot I came across of our wedding- it’s been almost 22 years!

My can’t-do-without aprons!  The middle one was made by my sister-in-law, Nancy.  It fits in perfectly with my other two vintage aprons.  I can’t wait til it’s broken in and the fibers are as well worn and soft as the other two!  

The smell of honeysuckle and fresh mown hay.

The funny and beautiful way the light got captured in this bed cover.

Coffee, this mug, and turquoise nail polish.

Flowers. in every stage.

The orchid I got for Mother’s Day! (need to figure out how to take care of it)

This quote by Theodore Roosevelt:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. 

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly . . .”

As read on Brene Brown’s post about her new book titled DARING GREATLY.

Also college boy is home and the other two are done today at noon! SUMMER VACATION!!!
