I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

I haven't been blogging because we've been doing a little of this...

a good amount of this...

and eating like this. Though it is busy, I love this time of year!
But my favorite completed project of this week is this new bookshelf. Not just because I now have a pretty place to store our books but also because it's built and stained by Steve and Bub.

They did such a great job and it's beautiful! They stained it to match the in the wall ironing board on an opposite wall. I have been weeding out and getting rid of some books so it looks a little sparce. We go the the library often enough that I prefer not to store gads of books but we do keep some of our favorites that we have purchased or that were gifts. This is mostly the kids shelf in the family room with the grown up books stored on a shelf in the living room. The kids also have shelves in their rooms for books.

Summer is flying by!
