Vintage September

Do you remember the 21st night of September?

Love was changing the minds of pretenders

While chasing the clouds away.

Earth, Wind and Fire…old school, cool.

My husband, Sean and I love to spend time in antique stores…especially Sean. I think he secretly wants to join the guys from American Pickers, and go digging around in old barns and partially dilapidated homes to find treasures. I think I would love it too, but I really don’t like spiders or Tetenus shots, so I think I will stick to the air conditioned shops. When we can’t go out and hunt, the next best thing is Etsy Vintage!!! I can sit in my home and antique shop like a crazy lady. I thought I would introduce you to a few shops that I like on Etsy! You can thank me later for the countless hours you will spend perusing for your next treasure.

The trips we have taken to Colorado have been so incredibly special and memorable. It is the one time a year I actually take my camera with me everywhere and take as many photos as I can…why don’t I do that more often??? I love looking back at all of the fun things we did…Ice skating, horseback riding, the rodeo, taking tha chair lift up the mountain. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will be back next year!

Lock them up!

Sometimes I feel like I just want to lock my kids up…well, not so much lock up as FREEZE.

I really love this age…they are still sweet and love to snuggle mommy and daddy, but they are becoming more and more independent.

I am enjoying the fact that they want to help me around the house…setting the table, putting in new trash bags…simple stuff, but it is great.

Daley’s favorite “job” is washing and cutting the strawberries for dinner. She brings over the “helping stool” and grabs a very dull butter knife and starts taking the tops off of the strawberries. I hope she always want to help…I could use a little chef in the kitchen!
