A long while back when I was working at Savvy Home, I bought this dining room set for cheap on Craiglist to put on consignment. Well, it never sold. (It has some scratches and one of the chairs has an arm glued on-but you really can't tell). After the unfortunate demise of one of my chairs from my old oak table at Thanksgiving.... I decided to get rid of that one and bring this one home. I just LOVE it- it really classes up the place!

One day in the Fall, Jacob and I had some time to kill, so we went to the playground in the very first neighborhood we lived in when we bought our first house. All of our kids were born there, but Jacob was two when we moved, so he doesn't really remember it. I do, though. And I remember taking the kids to the playground alot- it was just a short walk from home.
I remember Sarah being about three years old and watching the bigger kids climb the ladder up the slide and being determined to try it herself. Even though I was never a really nervous parent, I remember being scared to death. But even at three, it was hard to tell Sarah she couldn't do something once her mind was set on it.
When my kids were small and I was frazzled, I was often told I would miss those years and I scoffed... "no way". Well, turns out it was the truth. I do miss those years. But I'm thankful I've got some good memories.

Recently she decided she likes coffee and wants to be able to make it at home.
For her birthday, I got her this new Keurig coffee maker. I really think we are going to like it. Me, because I can make hot tea with it. Libby because she can brew a fresh cup of coffe before school to carry with her. or anytime.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Libby!
