Friday Favorite Things


My favorite things this week are simple yet bring me the most joy....

These pictures that {I} took myself of a beautiful Rufous Hummingbird in my front yard top my list this week.

I have always wanted to get great bird pictures myself, and I am so full of joy at the wonderful beginning that these photos represent!

All I needed was a zoom lens and to be reeeeally quiet and sneaky. Totally worth it!

I ordered this from The Wheetfield {Katie Daisy} on Etsy and I am so excited for it to get here; this sign is perfect for California in the Spring and all these birds that are starting to move back in to our yard make me so happy. :)

Her artwork makes me happy too...it's so bright and colorful that I can't help but be cheerful around it!

Getting to be outside, even for 10 minutes with my boy was a treat. We have been sick so long, and he's a little worn from it all, so seeing him outside for a change, allowing me to take his picture so he "can remember" {his words} brings me joy.

Having fun outside on what feels like a beautiful spring day! :)

When he blows me kisses and mouths "I love you!", whether he is playing on the hill, or sitting on a chair at Starbucks while I wait for our drinks, it makes my heart melt. He is still {and always will be} my baby...my love...and I love that he is proud of that. <3 A kiss for mama xo

We had brief moments of warmth and sunshine here...it was a taste of what is to come and it was awesome. I adore my daughter's new billabong birdie tank...because of the birdies of course, and she was so excited that it was warm, that she ran to her room to put it on for the first time right before she grabbed a Popsicle and then ran back outside to soak up some rays with a huge smile on her face. I love this girl with all my heart...she is everything I hoped for in a daughter and more. <3 date day 015_edited-2

Even Yogi loved the warm sunshine...I don't remember the last time I saw him so content to bask in it!

It's cold and rainy here now, but I know that warmer sunny days are just around the corner, and I can't wait!
