I love that knitted design you created - stunning!
I got to see this production quite a number of years ago. It was hilarious and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Beautiful story - she looks so content. So glad it worked out for you all.

Your love will grow stronger - because you have decided it will. Looove that chocolate cake - that must have been quite the day for your wedding. You look stunning in the beautiful dress.

It's interesting how balance plays a dynamic role in every part of our lives - learning the boundaries, learning our strengths and the strengths of others and where we fit in it all. Thanks for sharing.
It's so true! I am constantly assessing how much I am taking on and still find it hard to understand why my body won't let me do everything I want it to do. From time to time, I will actually sit down and work out what my true priorities are and what I really want to do for the next season. It stops me feeling overloaded and I feel like I've got value from my time.

Thanks for sharing this encouragement. There are so many opportunities to show love to people - most of the time it is the simple things that can make a difference. Most people don't want us to solve their problems, they want us to love them through whatever they are going through and support them in whatever way we can. I found the same, when talking to the homeless on the streets - most of the time they just want to be listened to and respected and that often meets a need in them that's greater than any physical need we can meet for them.

I used to feel similarly about the winter months - where I grew up, the winter was also the rainy season, so it was extra challenging to stay positive and be creative. In my early adult years, I learned to treasure the winter times - it was during the winter where my friends and I would get together and share the tastiest, home-cooked meals, with varieties of desserts, hot chocolates, teas and coffees - whatever creation we wanted to experiment with. Winter time became a time of warmth in friendship - because there was less activity available outside, especially in the evenings, we would talk about all kinds of things, share stories of our lives and basically become so much closer in friendship. There are so many creative ways to do this - especially with a family as well - board games, card games - creating opportunities for conversation - to me it was priceless and great memories.

What a transformation! Brilliant idea.
What beautiful photographs! I love the way you you showed us so much by sharing the landscapes as well as the beautiful close-ups. There is something incredibly refreshing about a crystal-clear creek and open fields and ranges - beautiful.

Hoping your mother will recover well. I think that any artistic expression can be immensely therapeutic - and you have something to show for it once you're done.
Romantic - yes! What a lovely heritage you have.

Sounds a bit like my first attempts at cooking. I would have liked to have spent more time with my mother - she was a great cook and I didn't fully appreciate this until I went to boarding school for 3 years and realised what I was missing. I love the idea of the poetry in the book - it would be a great way to remember details.
Wow, you seem to have a happy, healthy family. Great pics!
This is fantastic! I am all for local, organic produce. The edible bugs actually sound really tasty - not something I would say that I would have been keen to try previously, but you make them sound delicious. The store will be amazing - who can resist good, fresh food?

What a great way to add a bit more flair to a salad. I need to give this a try sometime.

My Mom was so good at sewing - she made a lot of clothes for me right up until I started working. I admired her talent - and patience. She tried to teach me how to sew when I was about 15 or 16 - I just couldn't seem to make it work - straight lines seemed to be a challenge and I really didn't have patience when I couldn't get it right straight away. Unfortunately I didn't inherit the same talents she had.
I love the colours you've chosen for the boxes - great idea to make your own.
