We are home from our mini-getaway to the mountains! It's a wonder how slow-paced the days seem to be when there is no rushing about, no phones ringing, and no blogs to attend to or emails to read.
After a delicious family gathering at my parents' home for a backyard barbeque, we were welcomed with this wonderful surprise! My herbs are just starting to sprout! Here is the pot of basil the girls helped me plant a few weeks ago!
We have Oregano, Italian Parsley and Chives growing also! Mmm.. can't wait to use some fresh herbs in our summertime dishes!
I also got the pleasure of being mentioned in a blog I frequent often, Nature's Child. Over the weekend, Cate Nelson wrote a great piece titled Use Your Kind Words. Check it out and subscribe! They post a ton of great articles!
In other happenings, SewMamaSew is hosting a May Giveaway that starts tomorrow! There will be some handmade goodies up for grabs so make sure to check back on SewMamaSew's blog tomorrow for the list of participants!
Due to my weekend away, I may have missed the deadline for becoming an entrant but I am hoping to slip onto the bottom of that list to be part of this great creative giveaway! Keep your fingers crossed!
