April 14, 2014


Yesterday Justin and I spent some time cleaning up the backyard. It's still massively covered with leaves and we even have a big hunk of ice still holding ground! Amazingly, as we carried out twigs and swept away leaves there were little signs of life. This time of year always fills me with hope and delight! I'm worried though because apparently we have one more snow potentially coming! I hope these tender shoots will be okay.


I'm starting to get back into some normalcy after a really draining week, and as part of that I recorded Before the Dawn with Marina - fun times!! We actually recorded via Google Hangouts and if it stays stable we will probably do a show live!


This is what I did end up buying at Value Village. I have wanted a peach Old Navy sweatshirt for a long time. Also, I finally found a silver version of the wedding shoes I wore. I ended up donating my gold shoes a while ago. These are the shoes I wanted for that day and now I have them. I also bought the cutest little pot. It felt very French to me and I could have used it the other day when making Nutella ganache. Only $1! Overall, a pretty successful shop.

Yay to a successful shop! What wonderful silver shoes. I'm glad they found their way to you!

It's so great you got out in the garden Jamie, I know it really took quite a lot this winter but it looks like it's already coming back to life - woohoo!

Wowza, that sounds like and awesome VV trip Suzie! Isn't it awesome when that happens? I really remember you having a peach sweatshirt, I can even see it. I'm so glad you found such great goodies.

Late add from me :)

Suzie Ridler said...

Oh wow, life is stirring there in your garden Jamie, wonderful!

Shannon, that rocks Google Hangouts worked and you might do a live show.

It was a great little shopping trip and Shannon, I was wearing the original peach sweatshirt just yesterday. It's getting quite ragged but I still love it.

I think it's awesome you guys might try a live show, Shannon! Very cool!

Suzie, I love when you buy something like that and it just fits right into your wardrobe right away!
