Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
Last weekend we spent two nights camping on the river and we had such a beautiful time! It was just Eric and I and our little family. It was awesome!!! I'll be posting pictures about our trip next week.
One of my favorite things to do when we go to the river is walk in the shallow water and look for pretty rocks. I have loved to do this since I was a tiny girl.
I always bring home a handful of rocks and put them in the garden. They just don't look the same though when you bring them home, they are now dried and the colors are dull.
I was looking at them and thinking about how they are not as pretty as they were when I picked them, and then I remembered something that my Daddy taught me. You simply put the pretty rocks in a small jar.
And then fill the jar with water....
...and seal it.
Now they are so much brighter!
The colors are full and pretty like they were in the river.
I put the jar in the kitchen window where the sun can get through it.
It makes me smile every time I see it. Not only are they beautiful and remind me of my childhood, but they also remind me of our awesome family camp trip on the river.
It's a simple little thing that brings me joy.
