The simple things and simple treasures...

elena wilken

Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so hard.

Moments of summers past, from the place my heart loves most.

I/we never get tired of the ocean. It's half way into March and we've already made a handful of afternoon trips. Summer can't get here soon enough! Spur of the moment evening beach picnics are high on our summer activities list.

Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival, Portland :: a few of my own :)

elena wilken

We really wanted to go to the tulip festival this year as well, but waited a little too long. I guess you can expect rather 'tired' blooms in the last week of a month long flower festival. Regardless it was beautiful and we had a lot of fun. Audrey had a blast trying her best to get her rubber duckies aster than daddy over the finish line, enjoyed the slides and making new friends.

She wasn't quite sure about the tractor ride in the beginning, even though she asked for it. By the end she was ready to go around a few more times, though. :))

(I am not sure what made me not set the camera to one of the automatic modes when mom asked to take a picture of us, but I love this regardless ;). Besides I believe she has a few good ones on her camera.)

... She loves her 'ica'. (that's what she calls grandma - short for 'bunica')

...and here is one of me, taken by my sweetie :)
