This mothers day we got to do one of our favorite things. We went on a walk though the Avenues in Salt Lake. I was inspired by all the beautiful landscaping. I think Mushy was too, because he has been very focused on our "Weed Problem" this week. 

Nothing like a good self taken picture. Mushy looks so cute in this  picture. I LOVE you babe! Also, on a side note- this is the first time my nose has ever looked big. Maybe I have been fooling myself all these years into thinking I had a petite nose. I guess they say that ears and noses never stop growing, so maybe I should get ready for a long life of nose growing.

" I love you a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck"
My grandma used to sing this song to me when I was little. She would wrap my little arms around her neck and give me a big kisses every time the song said "peck".  Mushy looks at me a bit crazy when I try this routine out on him, but I figure I need to teach him now so he can help pass it on to our babies. Oh how I love my Grandma. She is such a wonderful woman. She has had a very long- 95 years- life. She was widowed early, and never took off her wedding band. She is a tremendous example of faith, disapline, and love. I hope I can make her proud someday, and that my life will be as full as hers. I love you grandma! 

Also- I did not get a picture of my mom on Mothers day, so I pulled on from our Grand Canyon trip. For mothers day I gave my mom a handmade short story. It was titled, "Why my Mom is the BOMB . com." It was hard explaining to my dad what that meant. Its true though, I really do love my mom. She has always been a mom first and a friend second. I could never ask for anything more from her. She is such a great listener, and she gives me the best advice. She continues to share her love and knowledge with me. I will never grow to old to be held by her and cuddled. (Although I think I am a bit to large for her lap now." I can  only hope that someday when I am a mom, that I can teach my babes to be as loving and kind as my mom continues to teach me. I love you mom- I hope you had a great Mothers day, surrounded by those who love you!

For the record I've always thought that you had a super cute petite nose. :)

About Me

My photo
I always had aspirations to make it big. Learn French. Move to Paris- for good. Instead, I met my soul mate, and our two lives became one. We decided to make it small, and moved to a little city. The inspiration for this blog came to me, while I was driving on an old country road with the top down and my man at the wheel. As the fields flew by, and the the Wasatch Mountains glowed in the Sunset. I realized that I may never be able to speak French and I will never move to Paris but I had made it big after all. This blog is dedicated to all the little things that make small town living beautiful.
