Day 65. Mar 6. Working on a few more necklaces today, and having so much fun taking pictures of the finished pieces :)
Day 66. Mar 7. Happy Saturday morning!! We stopped by the library to grab a few books for the kids. On our way out, we heard an announcement about an author upstairs who was sharing a story about a couple who saved the lives of over two dozen Jews during WWII. My husband and I both looked at each other and headed upstairs. We're suckers for anything WWII!! We spent the next 1 1/2 hours with the kids listening to the most inspiring story about a couple in Holland who risked their own lives to save others. One family they hid, ended up having a baby in hiding. This woman is that baby, all grown up. Isn't she beautiful? So inspired by this story! It's an amazing thing to see the ripple effect that one brave life can have on so many others.
Day 67. Mar 8. We've been doing a little house hunting lately, and decided to head over to our favorite part of town. . . the historic district. We popped in to view an open house on one of our favorite streets. Just look at the bike out front! Seriously, everything in this house was full of so much character. The colors, the design, the layout, the original hardwood flooring from 1905, seriously just everything was pretty much perfect. Oh, except for the half-million dollar price tag. Anyone else ever go look at houses they can't afford, just for fun? #pleasetellmewerenottheonlyones #bestafternoonever
Day 68. Mar 9. Definitely on an adventure today! #thehousehuntcontinues
Day 69. Mar 10. Dylan and Lily feeding the neighbor's horses at one of the houses we looked at today. Not sure if it's just our age or the stage of life we're in right now, but we're realizing that green grass and open space makes us happier than anything else. . .also realizing that's pretty dang hard to find in the valley, so the adventure continues! #househuntingfun
Day 70. Mar 11. On our house hunt today, we took a wrong turn and ended up on the backside of an old, historic homestead. As we turned the car around, I noticed something out of the corner of my eye and yelled for Jared to stop. I grabbed the camera and hopped out. In the distance, draped over an old brick fence, was the most gorgeous white peacock. At first I thought it had to be fake, but we got out of the car and watched it walk around for about 15 minutes, before we had to leave. I have never seen one before, and I'm not a huge fan of birds, but this peacock was incredibly breathtaking. And fun side note: check out this article I found after we got home.
Day 70. Mar 12. School today. I don't really care where it takes place, as long as we get it done. Today we did math in the living room with all the windows open. It was 75* outside, with a slight breeze blowing through. Just perfect! #ohhappyday
