This weekend included… lots of family time… early morning tea on the porch… hide & go seek… the county fair… blue ribbon zucchini bread… baby goats… a real life cow auction… little people snuggles… breathtaking views… antique shopping… vintage linens… long walks on country roads… blackberry picking… long chats with my Daddy… Spanish telenovelas… bunnies (need I say more)… Sunday supper… naps in the sunshine…fields of wildflowers…baking…Sally the Salamander… fresh air, cloudless skies and a chance to step back and remember all that is wonderful in the world. 8 more words
