Random thoughts on a tree-blooming Saturday morning:

1. What are your thoughts on headbands? Is there an age cut-off?

I tried it.

And I felt 12.

2. Did you see American Idol and Survivor both started this week? I feel like I have been watching these shows forever and I never get tired of them.

Our whole family has big opinions on both.

3. Four of my nieces and nephews and my brother just left for a mission trip to Moldova. They are so excited and a little nervous at the same time. I can’t wait to hear all about it when they get back.

4. It was an amazing week on the blog. We discussed:

5. Can I tell you how much I love CTL Z? It just makes life better.

And now?

    I have just fallen in love with headbands! The first day I wore one I did feel like I was 12 years old, but now they " add" to my outfit, more of a " polished" look, I have numerous in all colors.

    You have to watch Dame Penelope Keith’s Series on Hidden Villages and another on CoastalVillages - they are magical and Penelope is a delight!

    My late mamaw (we all live in SE Tennessee) called them Pee Oh Nees so that's what I've always called them. She had a few bushes in her yard. I loved them when I was a child and I still love them.

    Peonies are a June thing in my neck of the woods. They are a gorgeous flower, aren't they? Loved the teapot as a vase. I'm surprised that you didn't find a tour of Great Britain that included the Dales. I'm sad that All Creatures is over for the season.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE everything! But I will say I ordered the jute pots…. They are not nearly as cute as yours 😏. I’ll use to pot for flower bed 🥰

    KariAnne today I spent the day with family at the Tulip Texas Farm in Pilot Point. It was like a touch of spring! I can't tell you how happy I was to read your blog today. I did not know about Control + z! I have spent a lot of time when somehow I zapped the email I was working on! You are the best!
