73/365 ~ outside the window

We stayed at my brother and sister-in-laws's house while in Newfoundland. Right outside their dining room window is a gathering place for sweet little birds. They come to munch on seed in the bird feeders and I adored watching them.

72/365 ~ going "Home"

We flew "home" to Newfoundland for March Break. It certainly wasn't a warm destination, but it was a destination filled to the brim with warmth. 

We decided to surprise my mom, and we did indeed surprise her. I thought about having my camera ready to capture her reaction when she saw us, but I decided it was a moment I wanted to experience completely with my heart, I didn't want the camera to filter a single moment. It was a good choice. 

The picture below is one of only a couple pictures taken that day, but my heart overflows with memories of seeing my mom's face when she realized we were standing there before her.

71/365 ~ collecting

She likes to collect sweatshirts from different Universities. This one is from the University, her father, and I attended. A gift from her grandparents.

Is it me or does this picture look like a school picture?

70/365 ~ snack time

Sitting around the table after school having a snack and catching up on our day equals a happy mom. The new delicious and healthy fruit dip I tried makes me pretty happy, too. In case you would like to give it a try ...

Chocolate Yogurt Dip
1/3 cup plain yogurt
3 tbsp of cocoa
3 tbsp of maple syrup ( I used less)
1/2 tsp of vanilla

69/365 ~ spring is in the air

The temperature leaned a little above zero, so we had to spend a few minutes on the back deck letting the warm(ish) sun kiss our skin (and fur). Perhaps spring will arrive soon!

Nothing fancy just an ordinary evening hanging out watching "Friends" with my girl.

67/365 ~ art by candle light

Quiet music, candles, paper and pencils were just what our souls needed. It was a fun evening with my littlest girl!
