What have I been up to ...

buying a new coffee cup ... like I needed another one lol

 being a "bird mom" ... we had two nesting grosbeck moms this year ... one nest hatched 4 babies ... we aren't sure how many this mom's is sitting on ... take a look at that wonderful nest she built!
 spending quality time with the girls ... our annual trip to Ocean Shores ...


We met up in May to share our beach memory jars ...
Took a road trip with the entire family to Lincoln City Oregon to celebrate Chris' 30th birthday ...
 the kids and Haystack at Cannon Beach ...
 the house we rented ... we had the left side ... 3 bedrooms and right on the beach ... perfect!
inside the house ...


 can't get enough of this view ...


  my beach memory jar from our Oregon trip ... 
 birthday celebrations with my side of the family
 soccer game with Lisa and Terry ... Go Sounders
 celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary ...
 leaving for Port Townsend ... had a wonderful time!

 enjoying the view ...

 love my rock tower ...
 saw these two old samplers in an antique shop in Port Townsend ... if I'd had an extra $1,500 they would have come home with me!

 our beach finds
 and yes I've been stitching ... but I still haven't truly found my stitching mojo ... took me forever, but I did finally finish April's Word Play by Country Stitches ... I'm now almost done with LHN's Liberty ...

So that gets you all up to date on the life and times of me ... feels good to be back to blogging!  I hope you are all doing well and stitching up a storm ... I need to catch up with you all too *smile*


I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for memories ...

So good to see a post from you, Michele! Happy 37th anniversary (our 35th is closing in on us--hard to believe, isn't it?). Loved seeing all the photos of your trips and get-togethers... Looks like you've enjoyed the past couple of months :)

Have a great rest of your summer!

Fantastic pictures. Also, were you even legally old enough to get married? You look barely out of HS in that photo!

All that sea glass in one trip makes me jealous. I try to find at least 1 piece on each trip to the beach, but it's getting harder and harder.
