Today, mom and I drove around collecting furniture! Most of the sellers were young couples, some with small kids. Everyone was so nice! And the prices could not be beat!

I've set up house in our garage (sorry dad, your car is just going to have to weather the elements!)

Here's my new dining room . . .

Living room . . .

and study.

Unfortunately, I haven't found a bed I like yet. Hopefully the apartment floor isn't TOO hard!

Clouds that look like cotton balls

Gardening with my aunts

Island living & pretty sunsets on the water

Wearing hats with dolphins holding pick axes
