Finer Things Friday - Skipping in the Streets

I LOVE springtime! After being hunkered down inside for what felt like the worst-winter-ever in the south, we have been celebrating mild temperatures, low humidity, and sunshine. One of my favorite parts about spring and summer is the assortment of festivals and fun days in our downtown area. We live in the state capital and every weekend from April to November offers something fun, and usually free! Last Saturday, we went to a BBQ and Bluegrass festival hosted by one of the downtown restaurants. We had an amazing lunch, saw some great friends, and were very pleased with how much little man enjoyed the day. My favorite part? Watching DH and little man skipping through the downtown streets. Spending time together is definitely a Finer Thing! Head over to Amy's Finer Things to see what other bloggers are celebrating this week.

And I have to share this too - last night while the boys were outside cooking dinner, little man came running into the house with a HUGE smile on his face. He pulled the most beautiful rose from behind his back and said "God made this just for you mommy." So sweet!!


  1. This is such a great post, Amber. I did just this today after you reminded me of the FINER things last night! While our endeavors in the strawberry patch were "messy" we all laughed, and slipped and slided... And then we came home and had strawberry pie! Life is good. Remember this!!! :)

  2. Love this!
    Also, thanks for posting your playlist! I'll ahve this going in my kitchen all day now! :-)
