The Little Farmstead Can Wait...

Hey Seattle. Seattle! Just when we think we know you, you pitch us an 88 degree day on May Day! AWE to the SOME!

A good friend invited my preschooler and me, my sister and another good friend to spend the day at her Grandmother's lovely beach cabin. She served us an amazing chinese chicken salad on the waterfront deck. We sipped Arnold Palmers and just may have eaten our weight in chips and salsa.

Sometimes it's okay to let the laundry pile up, the beds go unmade (gasp!), the weeds grow at break-neck speed and have to pull dinner from a hat. Maybe it's more than okay to spend a day connecting with a sister,  a son and special friends…to slow down time (if only for a few hours) and appreciate the gift of today...

Feeling thankful and wishing you a sweet respite from your work. You work so hard…I know you do.



  1. It was a lovely day, made lovelier by a sweet friend like you (& little man of course!)! So blessed to have you in my life and can't wait to have you back for a longer visit!! ~Julie W.

  2. Oh it was such a treat, Julie! Thank you, thank you.
