so much has been going on - thanks for the update!
"fuffins" cute
I'm just inspired again the way you welcome little Greta into your kitchen projects. It shows in the care and happiness she has in her little cooking corner too.

I find that I don't allow enough time for "helpers" when I have a kitchen project - something I want to be mindful of and change. I want to give my children skills and good times!

Your Greta is watching her Momma very carefully and learning so well. Her tidying her kitchen and bringing in flowers to beautify is proof of that!

What a precious homelife you are building with your husband for your family!
