A pretty pink house with a red roof - those are ball-fringe curtains in the windows - with a delicate forsythia bush.
A happy day: we ate our first dandelion from our own back yard. Ben proudly helped me pick it. I couldn't help myself and weeded a flower bed.
Another happy, tiny little detail of my life is that the fat bar of French lavender soap has been washed away.
Its remaining little slivers were softened in water and melded onto the new bar of lavender soap. I do this not out of thriftiness, but because my dad does it. And I love my dad.
Here's funny and real. Our children have only a little bit of dirt in their sandbox. We're suddenly back into daily-bath-season. Maybe that's why the soap is disappearing around here so quickly!
And I love Genevieve's outfit. It is weirdly chic. There are several elements here to copy: the mix of blues with dark green. Knee-socks with capris. Dark socks with light shoes. That killer part with the barrettes - very 70s, don't you think?
All of this spring contentment for Leila and Rosie's collection: pretty happy funny real.
