I have to admit, that I'm not much of a Valentines' Day girl.
Maybe because my birthday is 5 days before,
and my daughter's birthday is 2 days after.
And did I mention that she was born
on our 3rd wedding anniversary?
So with all that going on,
we have enough love to celebrate!
For some reason this cute fabric called out to me
when I was at Joann's the other day.
I fussy cut it into strips and then did
a sort of log cabin block and made this fun mug rug.
I figure that I always do my best to
"Sew in Love" whenever I am making something crafty :)
So it's not necessarily Valentines
and there are hearts and polka dots....nuf said!
For my birthday this year
I asked my Mom, my daughter and my daughter in law
if they would want to join me and we could all go
to Balboa beach for the day.
We packed our lunches and headed over there.
The weather was fantastic.
One of the very few times it wasn't raining
on my birthday.
Gotta love California.
The boys had such a great time in the sand and water!
And my Mom loves any excuse to hang out
with her 6 great-grandchildren!
Little Miss Sofie is 9 months old already!
And little Miss Evie is 7 1/2 months old!
Makes my Nana heart happy to see the boys
playing so nicely together!
I know these little ladies will be
best friends forever too!
The boys were excited to ride the ferry across
to the other side.
David has made this trip many times,
but for the other boys it was their first time :)
What a perfect way to spend my birthday!
And if that wasn't enough,
this little blog of mine was featured in
the "Best of the Web" post
over at Pocketchange Lifestyle Blog!
How fun is that?
