This is going to be random and minimally crafty

An explanation for my Wordless Wednesday for Bonnie :-) This is the second time in our married life that we've had a glass door shatter! Both times it was caused by debris from mowing the lawn hitting it. On this occasion, I heard a weird sound while Bruce was mowing, but thought nothing of it. Later, when I went to check the mail, I opened the door and heard the sound of water being sprayed at me with a gushing for force. yeah, turns out, it was not water but glass....a million pieces of glass! Thankfully, I didn't open it all the way, because the glass just imploded at my feet. And THANKFULLY, it was not either one of the girls that opened it, because they wouldn't have paused at that sound.

On Tuesday we went Strawberry Picking for the first time. Ahhhhh, this lovely "Garden State" of NJ!

On Wednesday it was my Dad's 62nd Birthday. This is the coolest picture of him ever taken in 1968 in Vietnam:

And here he is now in all his glory, surrounded by his kids and Grandkids who obviously mean the world to him:

Not to ever be without his bib over-alls!

And here's the Strawberry Shortcake Cake, with fresh-picked Strawberries, in all its glory baked for said birthday:

Isn't she purdee? It's a recipe from Pioneer Woman, if you're interested. It was divine. And I think it looks extra decadent perched upon this cake plate from my Mimi.

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
