^^ David was practicing his casting (for fly fishing)…. he watches videos on it and then practices which I am guessing is the equivalent to us watching hair tutorials or something?? I don’t know I don’t get guys but its cute watching him 🙂IMG_7367IMG_7243IMG_7189IMG_7351 IMG_7258 IMG_7201IMG_7179IMG_7263IMG_7223IMG_7354IMG_7249IMG_7317

So this past weekend David and I had lunch outside in the backyard since it was such nice weather. It eventually got so warm I had to go change into short sleeves! (of course right now its FREEZING) but it was nice while it lasted. I had gotten a cute vase and serving stand from Tai Pan Trading and was excited when David brought home some tulips for me so I could finally use my vase and gave me an excuse to set the outside table even if we were just having BLT wraps 🙂  I am a sucker for anything tortoise and couldn’t resist a tortoise vase! I can’t wait til we can be outside all the time and just leave the backdoor open. Minus- we get deer running around daily in our backyard and Chauncey currently LOVES eating deer poop … I guess it looks like puppy chow? Or maybe he just loves poo.. either way he finds a way to sneak it without me seeing and I find out when he comes to give me kisses and his breath smells odd….. yeah gross I know.

Today was a crazy day… just so many heavy hearts after hearing about the Boston marathon. Lots prayers and love for them. Its nice for the country to feel united in tragic moments like this as we all keep them in our thoughts.
