paperbag book

I started this project before my brother died, originally intending to give it to him as a birthday gift. It was really hard to finish, mostly because I hadn't done any journaling and had to put everything in the past tense, but I'm really happy with how it came out. I've made two copies. One for my mom and one for Lyla, so she can remember her uncle KC and how much he loved her.

I went to Oregon last week with my Mom and her friend Joann. It was beautiful! We stayed in a beautiful cabin in the mountains near Joseph at a wellness center. We did a body cleanse, the whole juice fast and massages. This is the site if you are interested in doing a body clense at some point. The pictures of Lyla were taken on Fathers Day, which we missed spending with Aaron but Lyla wore her "favorite things" shirt in honor of Daddy!

A Berry Good Week

I've been keeping really busy lately. I've been doing a lot of pages that I will be posting soon. In addition I finally bought a canning pot and attempted my first ever canning venture. I made Strawberry-Almond Chutney which was super yummy. I got the recipe from this book. We had it with some awesome Indian Curry with coriander rice. Then I went blueberry picking on Saturday. It was so much fun! It was so peaceful and serene. I would advise anyone who has not gone berry picking to do it at least once. Check out this site to find a berry farm near you! So as you can imagine I have been baking blueberry pancakes & muffins for the last few days non-stop! I love this time of year!
