Ok.... so it's technically Sunday again! Weekends are loaded full of fun-ness lately, so I'm glad I can still link up with Life Rearranged a couple days late! So.... I'm just giving you a teeny little warning, today's post is gonna be a long one! Last Saturday was my Godchild Tessa's graduation and 18th birthday party!! It was a beautiful day out at the farm next to where I grew up!! It was so fun to see everyone and see things that I remembered seeing as a child. The day meant to so much to me and I will never, ever take it for granted that we are living back in Minnesota! Truly a gift!!!! First some random images from my week....
|I spied this cute white husky sitting amongst quite the interesting yard!|
|I just adore this bridge in St. Peter, Minnesota!|
|Old General Store & gas pump in Norseland, Minnesota! Too bad it's not open anymore. :(|
|Super cute new Silver jeans.... I mean capris. When you are short, you can wear capris for pants!|

|Got a hair cut.... and she curled it cute! Getting highlights tomorrow!|

|For those of you who don't know, we recently moved back to our home state of Minnesota after living in Michigan for 12 years. Michigan was so rich in microbreweries.... we loved it!!! So imagine my surprise when a local liquor store had a sign outside that they are carrying Bells Oberon beer from Kalamazoo, Michigan!! Not only that, it was on special!!! So of course I had to buy a six pack!! And the liquor store manager is going to give me their Oberon signs!|
|You'd like we live in the country instead of a subdivision! Behind our house....|
|Also behind our house! I hope they never build houses back there!|
|Beautiful blue eyes. Sigh. I love her.|
And now onto the photos from last Saturday!!!! It was truly such a beautiful day out at the farm!!
|My cousin's son, Marshall, is the cutest little boy!!!!!! Love his hair!!! Those curls steal my heart!|
|Grace & Marshall|
|Nobody is too big to sit on a Little Tykes chair! Love my daddy!|
|Comfort is.... seeing the pond behind the house I grew up in. The memories of walking through the pasture and swamps and forests.... All day long without a worry in the world.|
|The gravel road to my grandpa and grandma's house.... walked this road more times than I can count!|
|Fence post.... and pasture.|
It's been almost a year since we lost my cousin, Ashley, in a hit and run accident. He is dearly missed. The week he passed away, he and his wife were supposed to find out if she was pregnant. And she was. Shelly gave birth to Zachery in February! It makes me sad to post this on Father's Day, but knowing Shelly, Zachary and Whitney, their 3 year old daughter, have a beautiful guardian angel watching over them, gives me peace. I got to finally meet Zachary last Saturday. He is such a sweet little boy, and looks a lot like his daddy!!!!!
|Sweet Zachary and I! I am in love.|
|My Aunt and Godmother Linnea... Ashley's mom, Zachary's grandma|
|My sweet Grace cleaning bird poop off Ashley and Shelly's headstone! Darn birds... poop somewhere else!!|
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post!!! I couldn't narrow down any photos.... they are all just too precious to me to eliminate any!
