**fourth fun**

i know we're a few days past the fourth. but my photographer has shall we say, out of commission! the fourth of july is always a big wonderful family reunion. [i believe there were 156 of us this year.] it's filled with cousins and more cousins, yummy food and ice cream, the egg toss and lots of other games, campfires and hot mustard [thank you aunt nancy!], fireworks and sparklers, and camping as the frogs sing me to sleep. love it.

for the love of little things.

on our recent visit to b.f. [to visit the grimms, not the donuts] we did some shopping in pixburgh [aka pittsburgh]. i saw these adorable le creuset mini cocottes.

see, adorable!
in my frugality i decided against buying them. because really, how often could i really use them. well today i came across this:

lyx, i'll be back shortly. this time i'll get some donuts and some mini cocottes.
