Home


Miss Abbey is in girl heaven today. She has her daddy home and she has his full attention. She talked him into playing Groovy Girls with her. Isn't he a groovy dad to do that?

I'm sitting in the kitchen and I can hear them in the next room. She's pretending that her groovy girls are staying at the Stanley Hotel. The Stanley Hotel is in Estes Park and we spent some time visiting there a couple weeks ago. They're just too cute in there playing, so I walk in to take their picture.

I asked Abbey if she knew where the Stanley Hotel was. She looked at me blankly, and I tell her that it's located in mommy's favorite spot in the world. Still blank looks from her. I finally tell her that the Stanley Hotel is in Estes Park, and without missing a beat she said, "Mommy, I thought your favorite place in the world was HOME". Oh yeah, she's right it is my favorite place. And she told me it was hers too. And I thought my heart might explode when she said it. So sweet!

Home is my favorite place too! :-)

Won't be long before the snow in your header is a real representation of your surroundings again.

Have a wonderful weekend, Mer. :-)

Love and hugs,

Diane
