Ahhhh Summer......

I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted, yikes! But with summer upon us, evenings spent outside until dark, and weekends spent at the lake, posting isn't the first on my agenda:) So forgive my lack of posting for awhile!

In the meantime, I added a little space and wanted to share it with you! I LOVE, love, LoVe to read. And I am happy that I am passing this on to mt girls. Emma reads aal.the.time. I think she would read in the shower, if she could! So naturally I wanted to add a bookcase somewhere to house all our books. I had this bookcase down in the family room, and the only thing I really used it for was to store all our DVD's and VHS tapes. I brought it upstairs into the hallway. I love this print, I bought it a couple years ago online, and have loved it, but didn't find the right spot for it. The frame I had downstairs with an old picture in it, so I took the old one out and put this one in and what a perfect fit! This frame I bought at a thrift store (brand new) for $3. I had taken pics of the girls this past weekend reading their books, and thought it would be a perfect place to have this! The quote says, "I think of life as a good book, the further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.:
We still have to fill it up with our books we plan to read over the summer, and I need to redo that lamp, but I love this special little place to store our books (and many thanks to my wonderful Aunt who is always sending me books!!).
So, I pray that each of you has a wonderful summer, and please share any and all fun ideas that you do with your kids during summer vacation:)
