things that are growing...

1. This Basil
We grew lots of basil last year & ate it all through the summer so we decided to plant some for our new place when we moved. We rotate our little planter each morning & by the time Finn gets home from work, the baby stems have always leaned in towards the sun. Basil is delicious on all types of things & grows really fast!

2. Our Nephew
I miss this little guy so much & he's changing with every passing week. I love skyping with him & his sweet mama (Summer) and being able to actually see how he's grown, which is always a lot. Most recently, he has taken on vegetables, become a champ at rolling over, and has two teeth for crying out loud. He's getting big.

3. My Hair
A few months ago I cut off 14 inches of my hair and donated it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. Some friends & I did it together and if you've ever considered donating, I encourage you to do it! The short hair was great for winter when I was swimming laps often plus I think I saved a whole bunch of money on conditioner. That said, I'm ready for it to be long again and slowly but surely, it's growing back and is now past my shoulders!

  1. Love your hair!

  2. I really liked reading the word "nephew" :) The basil is an awesome idea! Jet loves his Aunt beth and Uncle Matt, and your hair looks great!! I like it both short and long. Love you!

    1. I love calling him my nephew. I'm an aunt!! We were just looking at pictures of him on your facebook and Matthew said he looked like he was "overflowing with joy". : )
