My blog is 1 year old today. Yay! One year ago, the weather was warmer and Alice was smaller (my hair was also darker-- hello ombre blond) but other than that, not much has changed. Life continues on, the good and the not so good. I have really enjoyed keeping track of our life with this little blog. I hope you have been able to find something sweet here, where the persimmon tree shakes.  

The trees are trying to usher in spring. 

Rosy is being uncooperative.

I moved a bird nest. Poor little bird built it in a trash bag next to a gas can so I made her a little bird box that should work much better. She has been working so hard every morning, getting the nest just right. Maybe soon we will have little eggs and baby birds-- if spring will ever arrive. 


  1. yay! happy blogiversary! the little birds nest is so sweet, i'm sure mama bird is very thankful for her new home.

  2. Happy one-year blogiversary! That's no small feat.
