Weekend Recap

Shawn is finally back and we are reintegrating. I was getting used to not having to share the cereal and leaving my socks everywhere...and watching lots of Say Yes to the Dress while crafting.

Why do I like that show so much? Did you know Shawn and I have been married almost a DECADE? Our 9-year anniversary is in July. Where does the time go?I decided we should take a cruise for our 10-year. Or camp at the Grand Canyon. That'd be my preference--no swimsuit needed.

Mommy and Daddy came to see us. They brought chocolate and vintage goodies and treated us to pizza. Wish they lived closer.The Cottage Collective's Grand Opening to the public is this Fri/Sat. So I jump-started inventory prep this weekend.This will be the first time I tell you I sometimes have doubts about this blog. Have thought about shutting 'er down. But I don't get a peaceful settling in my spirit about that, so I will continue to share our lives with you. It's one of those things that's hard to gauge whether or not I'm making an impact. Sometimes we need reassurance.
The beautiful outdoors is calling.
And all those dandilions that need uprooted.

Happiest of Mondays.

I love reading your blog! We're actually in the same MAPS group... and I've tried meeting you a number of times so that I could tell you, but it never seems to happen! Maybe it's because I'm just too shy ;). Thanks for writing!
