Why I'm smiling today...

Just wanted to show you real quick some things that made me smile today!

First of all, I woke up this morning to find that one of my hyacinth bulbs bloomed!  Isn't it gorgeous?!  And it smells like heaven!  Mmmmmm... I can smell it just looking at it.  :)

Second, my mother-in-law and I took the girls to the Boonshoft Museum here in Dayton and had a blast.  This picture doesn't really show what is at the museum but I love how happy my girls are!  We had a blast!

Third, I got two packages in the mail!  One was a delicious assortment of new fabrics for my bags!

...and the other was a couple of books I bought on Amazon!  "Grow Great Grub" by: Gayla Trail, and "The Backyard Homestead" by Carleen Madigan.

Cannot wait to get into bed tonight after the kiddos are asleep and thoroughly enjoy a couple hours of reading with a cup (or two) of tea!
