Week ~ 24 Happy Birthday Avery!

Our sweet little niece Avery James turn 8 this week. It's so funny how much she has grown (physically and personality) in the last year. She has such a kind heart, always sharing her love and affection.

Love that excitement!
Avery LOVES pugs!

Week 22 - 2011 Susan G Komen - Race For The Cure

Hello! Thank you for waiting patiently while my computer pitched it's fit. :)

I had such an amazing experience the first time we walked the Susan G Komen Race For The Cure that my friend Melissa and I decided to make it a yearly tradition. It is a heartwarming and hopeful event that I am proud to be a part of. This year there were over 70,000 participants and we raised 2.5 million dollars!!

The flag was flying high and proud that day

Even her little tow nails are painted pink

LOVE this hat!

What fun, energetic women!

Hopefully one day we WILL beat it!

How cute is she?

Week 21 ~ Community Garden

Across from our apartment there is a small community garden with local produce, wildflowers, plants that have been planted by the area residents. I have been thinking about signing up to have a space of our own in the garden since we moved to Soulard. I try to buy local and organic produce and ingredients so it's about time to sign up to grow our own! What goodies have you planted in your garden this year?
