On this the celebration of my 34th trip around the sun, I spent a relaxing day with the family, trying to recuperate from all the traveling of the recent weeks, and counting all the blessings that my family heaped upon me during this day celebrating my birth.

orchids from Paul

funky new necklace

new cookbooks are always a blessing :)

St. Catherine, the patron saint of teachers to hang over our homeschooling bookshelf

  1. I love that shot of the kids working together in the kitchen. Happy Birthday Joy! I can't wait to see what you whip up from Ice Pop Joy!

  2. Happy Birthday Joy!!!! It looks like you had a beautifully perfect day. We LOVE Ice Pop Joy - so many yummies in it. I love the St. Catherine you received, as well.


I love to hear what you think!
