Hello friends! It’s Monday after a weekend away with Steve to celebrate our 13th anniversary. It was wonderful! Here are some pics from our weekend and some hellos for this brand new week!

Hello coffee. I drank so much of it this week. To me, coffee and relaxing go hand in hand!

Hello reading. I read Austenland  {again} over the weekend. So fun! Now I’m starting on Kite Runner.

Hello to cherishing the time I got to spend with him. So good!

Hello to coming back to the real world, filled with lots to do and not enough time to do it!

Hello little sunbathing turtle. You are so sweet.

Hello to being back home with my sweet boys. I missed them so much!

Hello heart-shaped leaf. Love is everywhere, you just have to look for it!

Hello to washing sheets and getting ready for my mom and sisters to visit. Hooray!

Hello gorgeous fabrics at Raoul in Santa Barbara. I was seriously inspired!

    Austenland was a fun read…recently saw Shannon Hale wrote Midnight in Austenland (Jan 2012). I haven’t read it yet…but plan to….it might be worth checking out…..

    I just reread Austenland too. I was hoping to read Midnight in austenland, but was too late to run to the store, so I picked up an old favorite instead.

    Looks like you had a great weekend.
