I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

The Joys of Easter

Blogging has been hard for me lately. It’s like I’ve had a brain freeze for the past month. I sit down at my desk, put my fingers on the keyboard, and I type word garbage. Nonsensical words. Boring sentences. Nothing makes sense or sounds interesting when I write lately. Even as I wrote just those few sentences, I’m bored with it and feel the need the wrap up this blog post already…blahhhh.

Anyways! Easter was another joyous holiday with the family this year. We celebrated mine and Paul’s birthdays too, since our birthdays are only 2 weeks apart, and we had such a wonderful time. We ate pasta, meatballs, Italian sausage, garlic bread, popovers, fruit pie, Easter Pizza, and chocolate cake. Nummy. We enjoyed the beautiful weather by watching the boys play in the yard, watch Paul test out his new gift, and just sitting around the (non-lit) bonfire. Enjoy my favorites from last Sunday. :)

PS. Missed my brother’s family as usual!! xoxo

PPS. This past Monday I stepped out of my comfort zone and I cannot wait to show you what happened. :) Stay tuned, friends!!

Chase has been starting to make just wonderful facial expressions. :) Someone decided to blow out our candles for us again – I think this is going to be a tradition. :)

Remote control helicopter!!! :)

You can’t really see it but I am now sporting a “Hogwarts” sweatshirt. :)

See?? He is just too funny.
