memorial day bits

a few bits from our memorial day...
a day filled to the brim with thankfulness for our military men, women and families
 and for all they do and sacrifice to protect the freedom of this great nation we hold so dearly.

this little star turned 6 months old!
a photo shoot for all the girl scouts in town to be put in
medway's 300th birthday time capsule.
(ella is in the front row, near the middle)
a gorgeous day to march in the parade with all my little daisies.  
bennett hopped in along the route to join us - he was so excited  to join the
fire trucks, bagpipes, floats, soldiers and all the scouts!
a fun afternoon and cookout at home
with my mom and brothers.
games, mario brothers and all sorts of silly!
it definitely felt like the unofficial kick-off to summer.
i hope yours was just as fun!

six months old

a gorgeous day thrifting and swooning over chippy painted treasures at the
brimfield antique fair.
and here is what came home with us.
just a few things to make this house feel  more like home.
note: if i had my way that blue bike up there would have come too, but alas there wasn't room.  note to self: next time bring a roof rack...or maybe rent a uhaul!

we are settling in after a crazy couple of months.
i'm finding bits of normal and routine...
even if it is a new normal with new routine.

it feels good to have the time for this little blog space again.
my small way of keeping memories and sharing bits from our home, 
even if they are just instabits like these!
