this moment

{this moment} – A Friday ritual (inspired by soulemama). A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.

Wishing you all a peaceful and beautiful weekend.

a visit from Nina and Nino

Over the last week we have been blessed by a visit by Owen’s Nina and Nino. It had been quite awhile since we last saw them but yet Owen felt very comfortable with them almost right away which of course made me very happy, since he often is very shy around people he does not see often, with some people he simple never opens up to. So yes I am quite happy that he likes his Nina and Nino since they are his godparents after all! Our dog Bella definitely remembered them as she couldn’t stop crying for joy and jumping all over them when they walked through the door. Oh Bella, what a big heart you have.

We spent our days going to the beach, taking walks in the forest, and eating delicious food. At night we spent our time sewing away as we were trying to complete a quilt for our tiny fall arrival. And amazingly we did indeed finish a baby quilt. I’d say it took us about 3 nights and we will be sure to post all about it as soon as Jenna and Tristan arrive back home from the rest of their trip. It was so great to have them stay with us for the time that they were here, as it always is, and we will miss them dearly in till their next visit.

We miss you already Nina and Nino,

Hugs and kisses from Owen and the rest of us,
