Have a wonderful weekend

My darlings, what are you up to this weekend? My mom is visiting and has been making us the most delicious meals, including lamb stew and shrimp with creamy rice (and she's baking cookies today!). It has been a wonderful, dreamy two weeks so far as a family. Hope you have a fun weekend, and, in the meantime, here are a few great posts from around the web.... xo

Lovely lighthouse wedding.

How to make the best scrambled eggs.

Living in a Fellini film.

Most beautiful cabin ever.

We just got six of these latte bowls and love them.

A little strut!

Cotton bloomers.

More cotton bloomers.

Pretty outdoor photos.

These paper cups would be fun for parties.

How cute is this photo montage that Abbey made for her son's first birthday? As she said, what a difference a year makes!

A beautiful new paper-cut world map.

Cute notecard.

Green graffiti.

Pretty. She looks like Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

A wedding with cookies and daisies!

Adorable British kids clothes.

The World Cup? Yes, please.

Plus two videos:

The Iceland volcano.

This SWEET little boy got a hearing device, and this video shows the amazing moment that he starts to hear.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sounds like a lovely week for your family. Bask in it.

Aww, that video with the little boy getting a hearing device. That is beautiful! It brought tears to my eyes. It reminds me of a picture of a little boy hearing for the first time... his expression does it for me. I can post a link of the picture, when I find it in my bookmarks.

I'm excited to be attending a baby shower this weekend! I'm mush when it comes to pregnant women and babies, because that was without doubt the happiest experience in my own life (my daughter is now 23, so I also feel like Rip VanWinkle).

Enjoy every wonderful moment now... it will keep a smile on your face remembering this time when you need it in the future.

My boyfriend showed me the hearing device video a few days ago - it made me cry I was so happy! Nothing short of a miracle. Happy weekend to you + yours. Cheers.

susannah said...

i read your blog all the time...my 2 year old deaf daughter got the same hearing device (a cochlear implant) when she was 9 months old. LOVED seeing this video on here-it is truly a miracle that these litle ones can learn to listen and speak.

enjoy your new itty bitty!
