Two Teens And Their Mama: Whatever Is Lovely

Whatever Is Lovely


I've been wanting to link up with my friend Carrie at A Lovely Little Wardrobe for her Whatever Is Lovely series, but I always seem to miss it. Fingers crossed for today!

--Last week I wrote about the dismal failure in our garden this year.  I'm happy to report, however, that our front yard is doing great.  The flowers are enjoying all the sunshine and warm temperatures.  Me too.

--I came across The Sweet Nest blog a few months ago, and I immediately forwarded it to my most French friend, Deena, because I knew she would appreciate it.  Anna and her family moved to France from the Pacific Northwest last year, and she shares stories, and the most gorgeous pictures, from their adventures.

--My lovely mom is feeling better and her arm seems to be healing well.  She still doesn't have much use of it though, so we'll see what the doctor has to say next week.  And yes, I made her go hiking, even with a broken arm.  It was a short walk and she needed to get out of the house.



--A military vest has been on my radar forever - and I finally found the perfect one!  It's so great, I may need to order another one in a different color.



--Have you gone outside this week to check out the Perseid Meteor Shower? It's one of my favorite things to do this time of year, and my younger son and I get set up in our hammock and watch the show.  Even though the shower peaked on Wednesday, there's still time to catch a few falling stars.


Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Your flowers are gorgeous Lana, and I hope your mom soon regains full function of her arm.
    I missed the meteor shower at its fullest this year. My husband and kids went out, but I was in the midst of a migraine and couldn't lift my head off the pillow! I have been lucky enough to see a few falling stars though.

  7. Sadly I missed the shower so far. I can't seem to stay awake long enough. Of course, I've had both babies full time this week so I've been dead to the world by 7 every night this week!
