I just ran outside in time to see in amazement at how beautiful the sunset is reflecting on the storm clouds. The first pictures shows the separation of calmness and chaos fast approaching. Since I am still so new to these kind of storms, I am always in awe everytime I see lightning and get so excited as do my kids.

Patapsco Valley State Park

This past weekend we went to Patapsco Valley State Park for the day and had a great time hiking and walking up to the waterfall. It was so nice to be outside even though it was a bit hazy.

The days have been very gloomy which has gotten feeling so blah but the sun finally came out these past two days and this weekend should be perfect for another day at the park, I hope. We are expecting t-storms tonight and hopefully the humidity will go down a bit.

I am so inspired by the great outdoors right now and with that I am on the hunt for picnic accessories but not just any common bland item but some fun and cute accessories with a little vintage thrown in. I am having a hard time locating anything at the moment but have found a few sources and I think I will dedicate my Friday finds to picnics and accessories.

I am hoping we go to Shenandoah National Park as it is such a beautiful place and haven't been their since David was a baby. Fingers crossed.

**the storm is definately here as we hear the thunder very clearly now and clouds are amazing in color**

Candy Bouncers

On top of everything that I want like a nursery and a vintage trailer I am on the hunt for some candy bouncers for my yard. I had to settle for these cuties since they were in my price range:). I found a site that sells them and man are they pricey. Another want to add to my never ending wish list.
These little yellow ones live happily in my flowers for now.

Happiness in a Bottle

Happy first Monday of May. I really wanted the weather to warm up and get back to working on the vegetable garden but boy I never thought it would be 90 degrees when it was only in the 40's in the beginning of the week. Well I did manage to plant all my flowers and still need to finish half of the vegetable garden but I will have to wait as it is raining today:(
The last couple of posts all I talk about is flowers and vases and so on and I was lucky enough to find these broken, scratched up tiny little bottles on Etsy for $3.0o. I had second thoughts but when they arrived they were perfect. Look how adorable they look full of azaleas. Flowers are the best accessory for anything broken or tattered.

Thank you all again for the kind comments and I wish you the best of luck on my little giveaways. 2 more days left.
