Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.
Mother Teresa

we love to make a celebration out of the ordinary, and so it was on Sunday... as we pulled together friends for a spur of the moment cook out, finished off with "smores" around the fire pit...

but not until dear dad had to piece together from his "scrappy" scrap pile to find the right stuff to burn for just the toastiest of mellows.

and just in case you wonder ...it wasn't perfect...we had , messy, sticky, whiny kiddos, a couple o' swing mishaps, blood, sweat and tears (yes, all three),and tweeny girls that wouldn't come out of hiding when it was time to go. completely normal here!...and completely worth it...

good friends, blue skys, "smore"" smeared hands and lips, garden fragrances thick in the air and a blanket of color before me, who could ask for more?
