{Today's Letters}

Monday, July 01, 2013


Dear Mr. Loerke, this weekend we taught River how to swim, wore cowboy hats as we worked on house projects, and stuffed our boca's with dollar hotdogs at the ballpark. Let's do these things again and again. Dear Strawberry Thief, you just got outsmarted with lavender, sage, and some plastic forks. BAM. Dear Self, you are imperfect, quick to speak at times instead of listen, and often don't put things back on the correct shelf at the grocery store. Keep growing. Dear Timothy James, this morning I caught you with a fork in my strawberry rhubarb pie. Good thing I love you more than eating the last bite.

Happy Monday, brave ones! How was your weekend? I hope it was filled with learning new things, time outside with those you love, and baking something that reminds you of summer.

Btw, congratulations to Ashley Butz for winning our giveaway last week! Be sure and checkout Miriam Designs and be encouraged to see how your purchases help the women at Thistle Farms.

Em, I have more fun with you than River has chasing her tail. I love you and am encouraged by your industrial nature and humble heart. So proud of you!

Congrats Ashley! I love weekends where I learn in creative ways. Some are fun some not so much. My weekend was spent exploring Tennessee creeks with nephews & niece. Here's to sore backs, tired feet, crazy good memories and naps in a creek!

Yay River! I saw the little bit of panic on Tims face when River was underwater. I had a chocolate lab named Lucy Jane and she was the best. When she was a pup she stepped out into a creek but it was the deep end and she went under and I panicked. She came back up and started swimming. Lol Dogs. Are. Awesome.

I love the idea of the plastic forks to keep away the thieves
, did you dip them in lavender and sage? Is it really working? Thanks!

Shae, I am in Nashville. I am a Texan transplant by way of South Carolina. :)

But I love this state and other than Ireland I don't want to live anywhere else.

Are you near Pigeon Forge area?
