I hope everyone is having a good week!
Last week my girlfriend and I took our little girls for a mile-long hike behind her house and I happened upon two of these lovely rose pine cones.
Nature walks are so good for re-engergizing and restoring balance, not to mention the cool stuff you find along the way!
They almost look like they were carved out of wood, don't they?
They actually come from the tops of Deodar Cedar Pinecones and when they fall to the ground, they break apart and look like this.
One of natures amazing gifts!
I thought I'd share some personal things going on in my life right now...
I started training for my half marathon this week... woohoo!
My sister just gave birth to her fourth child, a baby girl named Colbie. I'm hoping to get some photos of her soon.
My childhood best friend is getting married this Friday on 11/11/11, eek!
Between now and the end of February, my family has 12 birthdays. It get's pretty busy around here during the Holiday season!
I've picked up my crochet needle again : )
Also, I know everybody reads Maria's beautiful blog Dreamy Whites and it was such an honor to be mentioned on her blog. Thank you Maria! Maria is super talented on so many levels, gorgeous, and the sweetest person. She's got a giveaway going on her blog right now that you don't want to miss!
Wow, are you still there?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
until next time,
