{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life. ~

I was working on a daybook post yesterday, but never had a chance to finish it... maybe later, after we get home from swimming lessons.   In the meantime, here are a few pictures I took this past week with my phone using Instagram!


 This pretty bouquet of flowers has been making me smile every time I walk into my kitchen.   They are from my neighbor, who sells flowers at the Grower's Market each weekend.  
Don't you just love gladiolus? 


The dipped (shell) cones from DQ after swimming lessons on Captain's baptismal anniversary were a huge hit and oh-so-easy!


We attended a friend's wedding last Saturday, and the bride choose pink, black and white for her colors.  So pretty!!!  ;)  Anyways, we all thought it was funny when the Bride & Groom pulled up to the reception in a Pink Hot Rod!  My girls loved it, and were so excited when they got to climb up inside.   It was such a beautiful wedding and fun reception! 


It is so nice to have freshly picked tomatoes from our own garden this summer!
