Uncle Time, Library Love, and Baking for Fun

Sadie has been getting in all sorts of uncle time lately! She hung out with my brother a lot while we were on vacation (and even wanted to call him just to talk after we got home πŸ˜‚), and she spent some time with Jimmy’s brother this week!

Nick recently moved to a new house with 13 acres of land, and I had yet to check out the property and his new abode! Sadie was in heaven playing with her Uncle Nick and his puppy, Peach.

She also sat on one of his tractors! It was so peaceful being out in nature with nobody around. I’d love to live on a big chunk of land someday 😊

We visited our favorite library this week. Libraries are just the best. Bookstores and libraries are some my favorite places to spend time.

Our local librarians know us well and let Sadie play behind the circulation desk. We are so spoiled!

Sadie and I made cinnamon rolls together this morning! While all baking is fun for me, it was nice to bake them just because. Not because they were for an order or an event or something else. Just for the fun of it! I need to do more of that.

Sadie seemed to really enjoy helping, and of course she approved of the finished product πŸ˜‰

Well, I better get going! I’m pet sitting my friend’s dog and I hear her and Niva getting up to something in the back yard πŸ˜‚

What was the last thing you baked just because?

Where are some of your favorite places?



  1. I honestly don’t remember the last time I just baked for the fun of it… I should definitely do that soon!!
    My favorite place is definitely our beach house. Heaven.on.earth – in my opinion.
    I’m glad Sadie is spending time with her Uncles- it’s so important to stay close to family while growing up ~ and I’m sure she LOVES all the cuddles and fun time with them.
    Hoping Niva didn’t get into too much 😐

  2. Sadie and her Uncles! She is the best! Love πŸ’• her s much!
    Love πŸ’• You

  3. I love that the librarians know you all so well! Same here. The library is definitely a happy place for us. Though we’ve never been behind the desk before. That’s super special! That picture of Sadie on the phone is SO cute!
