Fresh


Yum. Thanks to Erin for sending me some yummy sunshine in a box from AZ. My daughters love to bake and with things being so hectic lately it was a good excuse to make a mess of the kitchen that I forgot I even have. Homemade Lemon bars in the dead of a Colorado winter did us some good ;)

"Cherish" is in the works and I hope to be able to share some sneak peek photos next week so check back. So exciting just cant wait.

I also wanted to thank you all for your kind words and prayers. It is amazing how many wonderful people I have surrounded myself with and it reminds me of just how luck I am. My dad is recovering well after his 3rd and last surgery and now all we need is time. My father in law is still in ICU almost 5 weeks now. Gaining his strength every day and we hope to move him into a long term care facility this week. My grandpa is recovering from his heart attack and now receiving radiation treatments for the cancer that was discovered during his hospital stay. Certainly a challenge to have 3 very important men in my life all struggling at the same time with life threatening conditions. Really makes you look at life in a new light and be thankful for all that I have and all that I am.

I would love to do a giveaway just as a sweet thank you to all for your support and friendships ;). So leave a comment and I will do a random drawing and I promise it will be good. I am oozing with creativity now and begging for some Spring so I just might need to get out my stacks of fabric and scissors and create something new ;)
