This weekend we went to a Harvest Festival in a small town in VT. They had a very small floral show and someone made this arrangement and it just reminded me of my Great Grandma for some reason. I am not sure why because she was never really into floral arrangements but she did always have black slip-over shoes (not boots) for when it rained out so maybe that was why, but either way it made me smile.

This past weekend, we discovered a nest of baby bluebirds on our porch of all places!!!
We do have a bluebird house not too far from this location and noticed two sets of bluebirds fighting over it a while back but didn’t think much of it. One of the pairs must have relocated to my porch without us realizing it. They made the nest next to the back door in a high-traffic area and only about 4FT off the ground. I am not sure if that is the best or safest place in the world for a nest!
Unfortunately, discovering the nest was not a weekend smile as someone stepped on a bird walking to the car. I was so upset when I had discovered the fluff ball. I started to look around and they made their nest in an old peach basket that was sitting on a planting cart. To put it in perspective I am looking down on the birds. They are in plain view! I am hoping no predators find them.
It was strange because the other birds were just hatched when I found them. I honestly thought they were dead and I was going to get rid of the nest but decided I would wait for David. Good thing I didn’t because look at these two beauties a week later when we went to move the nest!

Yes! I am behind but this one makes up for it. Each weekend I will share with you something that makes our family smile This past weekend, we spent the majority of it camping in Vermont, but what made me smile was when I went to buy firewood at a roadside stand I saw this sign. The firewood booth was being run by a 10 year old. Whoever that 10 year old is please know you made my heart smile and you remind me of my drive and determination when I was 10 years old working at my family’s farm market!

This past weekend, we spent the majority of it planting Christmas Trees, but what made me smile was my boys wanting to help especially my youngest

This past weekend, we brought the boys to a beautiful lake in The Green Mountains.
They enjoyed playing in the sand, climbing on the playground, and learning how to skip rocks.
Although they have a long way to go with that! Plop!!!
