more packages and our weekend.

Happy Monday Blog friends, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am going to start this post with... Yup you guessed it, more packages. How blessed am I to have won the PAFA team giveaway. So here is a package from Saturday, forgot the picture of the package, I was excited and just opened it

Look at this beautiful Pillow, isn't it wonderful. Ronda Tedder at Simple Thyme Prims did a great Job

Then this package came in from Trish Camillo and look what is inside...I won her giveaway for the spring wreath. It is just beautiful


Here it is, the colors are beautiful and that bunny is so darn cute

Sunday here in Maine was Maple syrup Sunday so we got up early and headed to a small maple sugar house in Gorham, Maine

It was freezing outside, inside smelled like Heaven



getting ready to add more wood to the sap boiler

gotta keep that fire hot for the sap

samples of ice cream and fresh maple syrup


Here is the outside of the shack... it is a really cute building 
Then even though it was freezing, we decided to go to the beach to look at the ocean and get some Pier fries for lunch.. It is so worth the drive for those pier fries.. YUMMO!!!

Not sure what was up with my camera, these pictures are soooo bright, it was very sunny out but these are just so bright
Kennedy wrote her name in the sand, we were all freezing and she was ready to play in the water, crazy girl...

I hope you all had a great weekend as well.

Hi Sabrina,,

So glad the bunny made to your home..!..I can remember as a child going to a maple syrup farm, this post really brought back some memories. It was always cold when we went and the warm syrup was so good. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day. Enjoy all of your wonderful treasures from the PAFA team.!
Simple blessings,

I really enjoyed your pictures of the maple sugar house-- that's really neat! Do you eat the syrup on the ice cream??

How fun to be so close to the beach... even if it was freezing cold. Sounds like a fun day!
