Livin The Dream

Hi my friends....Spend the Fourth Of July with my favorite person in the world... my brother Steven. ( my baby brother) As far back as I remember growing up, my little brother has always worked so hard & has had lots of great friends around him...and he still does... I remember the little skinny kid waking up at the crack of dawn to deliver his local newspaper route, oh how did he ever survive living with me & my mom... let me tell you life was not easy back then... well he turned out to be quite the man. I am so proud of the life he has created... a wonderful life filled with lots of love, a beautiful wife & baby, great friends, an spectacular Farm/home... I love you.. Thank you for being truly the best brother to me & a great uncle!!!!! xooxo Your big sister & your biggest fan!!! I wanted to share a part of what matter most in my life... my family....
me & my little brother who is now my BIG brother
Steven, my son Dante, my daughter Lilly (Olivia), my mom Edie... Happy Fourth!!!
Steven's beautiful wife & my precious nephew Dylan's mom... Dr. White/Aunt Jean
like father like son?
loved his shoes..he didn't quite understand why I was taking so many pictures.. I told him I have a blog...he looked at me like I was from another planet.
God bless this beautiful child!!!

There was sooo much food but I loved this idea. easy & delicious for a party... grape tomatoes with fresh basil, mozzarella marinated on a skewer... delicious..
Their back porch with the prettiest setting wraps around half the house... I would love to take a long nap here one day or two...
one of their paddocks... lots of hard work keeping up with it all.
A couple of pieces of quartz Dante found on his walk.. Inspired me to make something.


we get the best watermelons down here..
my little lillypie is taller then me...

O.K. That's All Folks..... Yes... I would say they are Just Livin The Dream... I hope you are too!!!! have a great day!!! xoxo Laura

I had a great wander through your blog today following your comment back to here. A lady after my own heart. Loving your son, beautiful things, making, life, the beach. Don't you just love it when you read someone's blog that just reeks of character and integrity. Especially your best treasures, your son and your heart. How neat to have your mum over the road. Primo.

Your Baby Brother~ Now your Big Brother is living in a beautiful Dream. Your family is filled with much loving kindness, Laura. I can feel it a thousand miles away through the essence of this post.

Like you, I adore Steven's stompers. Do you know what kind they are? Would love to surprise my husband with a pair.

Hugs from afar!
