Gallery Wall and A New Window

April 28, 2014

I think I finally created a gallery wall in the den that I can stare at and be happy ..........it's filled with my children's art work.

My kids happened to make me the most amazing birthday cake this weekend. Now this is perfection....

and it was delish. Each of my kids baked their own layer with dad, and gooped frosting all over it.

Picked these up this week...... My first peach tree. I figured it was about time, since I live in the peach state. I see a delicious peach pie in our future. 

And finally, I was so excited to show you the full kitchen reveal this week, but this happened....a new window over what was my butlers pantry. And this time, it was all this handsome guys fault.

Some girls get diamonds for their birthday, I get windows..... and kisses!

Have a super fantastic week.
