Hello friends and hello new week! The last week we’ve been home sick {Matthias has had an ear infection} so I’ve gotten some cleaning and purging done around the house. Wow, it feels so good! That seemed like a good reason to take some pics to share for this week’s ‘Hello Monday’ post!Hello sunflowers from sweet Emily of The Pilot’s Wife. She and her family stayed at our house for a few days and it was wonderful to catch up!

Hello happy. This little corner is so bright and cheery.

Hello antibotics. Matthias will be taking them for 6 more days still {and he hates the taste-bummer!}

Hello vegetables. I’ve been roasting eggplant, zucchini, onions and tomatoes with a little olive oil and salt–and they are delicious!

Hello fruity wall full of painting gathered at thrift shops and made sweeter with some watercolors by Chrissie.

Hello summer mantel. Simple, clean and whimsical.

Hello little bust with a bow around your neck. You’re all dressed up!

Hello kitchen cabinets that I would love to paint. Someday we’ll paint them cream–I just know it!

Hello entryway with an oversized sailboat and ocean paintings.

Hello to two doctor appointments this week {both for David}. Just check-ups, I don’t expect anything unusual.

Hello cozy couch that makes a great napping spot. Not that I get to nap often, but sometimes I sneak in a few minutes just to collect my thoughts.

Hello to dinner with our friends the Millers this week. We love them!

Hello ready for summer. The boys don’t get out until June 14th and we are counting down!

Hello books, books and more books. Both of my boys love books {well all of my boys, if you count Steve!}. I love a good book but I don’t read as much as I should. Are you reading a good book right now?

Hello teapot. I love that you help make my delicious french press coffee every morning. Yum!

 Hello oranges from our yard. They are really tasty too–surprising since we haven’t taken care of the tree this year.

Hello Monday! It’s a new week filled with lots to do and friends to see. And summer is just around the corner–yay!
