March Visits

March has been so beautiful this year! The weather has been so wonderful that we've enjoyed great visiting this month!

Mama and Dad came up the first weekend to bring Cassidy's birthday gift - Dad made her a craft cabinet like mine. We spent the day at Matt and Jenn's new place and all went for ice cream in Columbus. It was also their first time meeting the girls so that was fun as well! Miss Kati is my kind of gal - she went right for Mama's rings!!

Brittany came up for a Sunday visit. We lunched and then went to Trader Joe's for baking supplies and food ideas. I am always so happy to see her and so excited for her bakery plans! I cannot wait for her to open her bakery and for more of her chocolate chip cookies.

Rose also made her way up for a Tuesday night date. With work we have both been so busy that I was glad to just have an evening together.

What a wonderful month spent with those we love!

Our First Weekend Together...

This past weekend was the first weekend since November that both Mark and I have been off and without a trip involved!! It was such a blessing to spend time toegther, just our little family.

Friday Night we had dinner at Fridays (with gift cards and a coupon so we paid just $4) and then went to find Mark a suit. I had been saving since last summer when he first mentioned it and so we found him a beautiful Ralph Lauren suit at Macy's.

Saturday we enjoyed a free (thank you Cindy Dawson!) trip to the Home and Garden Show and then lunched at Shapiro's. Realizing that we still had a lot of the day left we headed up to the north side to visit Trader Joe's and some other organic food stores. We promptly realized that we are too poor for such luxuries and found a FANTASTIC Goodwill to spend the rest of our afternoon in! :)

Sunday I went to church while Mark visited Great-Grandma Kathryn and then we stayed home all afternoon watching movies.

It was so wonderful to just be together! I think God for all of the little blessings in our life!
