It's no secret that pies are my thing. Some women relax at a mall or a spa, but I love to relax by making homemade pies in my kitchen. There is a homey and wholesome beauty to the sight of my baking island in the midst of pie-baking.
From apple pies above to the apple which apparently hasn't fallen far...
My daughters love to play school as soon as they get home now. This is the sight I found in my oldest daughter's room. It's the same sight my mother found in my room most days of my elementary school years. It's the sight relatives and friends will always recount from their memories of me. The tradition continues as my daughters now line up their own dolls and stuffed animals to teach them.
We finished painting the children's rooms and then finally did a little decorating. This is my youngest daughter's special little shelf. Loki, the Norse God of Mischief alongside one of her patron saints (middle name), St. Jeanne d'Arc, the Maid of Orleans. For anyone who knows my spunky, loving gal, this combination makes perfect sense!
