We've been busy doing this thing called Life.
Today, I thought I'd catch you up on what has been occupying my time outside of blog land.
As most of you know, we lost my sweet MIL in mid-March. You can read the tribute to her here.
She was very blessed to have lived in her own home for more than 60 years! But, with that comes a lot of stuff. While we cleaned a lot out while up there in March, we still have a bit more to take care of. And of course, we brought many things home with us. You might also recall that our youngest moved back home in December. So, three households under one roof. We have finally dug our way out. Haha.
May brought some happier times for our family.
We then celebrated Mother's Day. While bittersweet this year, the girls made sure that I was remembered and made the day a little easier for their dad to get through. Church and then a delicious meal cooked by #2 was in order.
May 21st found us celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. I have been blessed to be married to my best friend, and the most wonderful father to our girls.
The girls and I so enjoyed celebrating him yesterday on Father's Day. #1 had dad help her with a wood project she is working on (the girl knows her way around power tools thanks to him), I made him fresh homemade salsa with ingredients from the garden (his request), the girls and I prepped dinner-cilantro lime shrimp and grilled veggies that he prepared on the grill with his new grill pan #1 gave him, and #2 made him a blueberry crisp using our homegrown blueberries. Scrumptious. We so enjoy having our girls close by.
And, if you follow me on Instagram you know that our precious Henley has gotten quite big. 6 months and 46 pounds!
He is such a joy to have around.
Tomorrow I will be sharing a yummy grilled chicken wing recipe, so be sure to check back.
