Hi Y'all, I'm Back!
It's so nice to be back after my blogging break! I have a lot of catching up to do and will be by to visit y'all soon. My parent's just left yesterday due to to the ice storm that hit Kentucky last week. I really do treasure the time that I get to spend with them. It was a little harder this time because Mama would wander around at night and I was terrified she was going to get out of the house or turn the stove on. I had the baby monitor on in our bedroom so I could hear when she would get up and didn't sleep well because I was listening for every little sound. Although it hurts real bad to see her this way I am just so thankful that I still have her to hug, kiss, and love on. We made some good memories, and even though she won't remember them, I sure will!
Right now I have some banana bread baking in the oven and "my, oh my," does it ever smell good! The washer and dryer are humming along and I just finished decorating a Valentine tree, which I will show you tomorrow. I wanted to share with you something I recently got in the mail that I absolutely treasure. Sherry, from the blog, Creations From My Heart, has an Etsy store and has some really beautiful things for sale. One of the things she makes are special made- to- order Memory Boxes. I asked her to make one of our little sweetie, Benjamin, and I'm tickled with how it turned out! Here it is:

Don't y'all just love it? She is such a talented lady ~ she is a great decorator and seamstress ~ check out the pretty aprons she makes, too! You can find her blog here and the post about the memory box here. BTW, I'm loving the pin cushions she has for sale right now!! If you visit please make sure and tell her I said hi!
Well, the dryer just buzzed and the timer for the banana bread is ready to beep so I need to jump off of here. I'll be back tomorrow to show my Valentine tree!
