Reflecting…

Reflecting on my many blessings this past week and thanking God.

This was taken out one of the windows at the Bellevue Art Museum in Bellevue, Washington.

1. A super filled Saturday where I re-connected with dear friends from my church growing up, my high school, and with my family and dear old Pop. It was good to see so many people I love in only 12 hours!

2. Beautiful Spring blooms are everywhere here in the Pacific Northwest and it makes me smile to look out my own kitchen window and see these Dogwood blooms.

3. A successful shopping trip where our daughter found her dress for a wedding she is in and I found a comfortable pair of shoes for our son’s wedding. Little blessings that will make for a more comfortable day of celebrating!

4. A Low Key weekend ahead. The last three weekends have been filled to the brim and it’s nice to know this weekend we’ll be able to catch our breath.

At the Art Museum…

5. Besides shopping on Tuesday Katie and I hopped across the street from the mall to the Bellevue Art Museum and enjoyed Madeleine Albright’s collection of pins together. No photos allowed of the pins but we found some other things to photograph!

Katie took this one looking up. Always remember to look up!

Do you have some blessings to reflect on this week? Here’s something more to consider…

I’m linking up with the lovely Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for Friday’s Fave Five and with Weekend Reflections.

Have a wonderful last weekend of April everyone!

  1. Looks like you had a great week. (I still can’t get over how many things you did in one day.)

    Love the domed book stack at the Art Museum! I also love your line, “Always remember to look up!”

  2. I could look at dogwood blooms ALL DAY! It’s a wonder you can get anything done 😉 But a relaxing weekend sounds like just the thing. Hope you get to bask in sunshine on your deck with the newly planted borders and tidy walkway.

  3. Sounds as if you’ve much to be thankful for this week. Thanks for sharing. I haven’t been down to the Bellevue Art Museum to see Madeline Allbright’s pin collection, but today might be a good day to do it, as it’s raining at the moment. Have a great weekend! xoxox

  4. Your filled-up Saturday sounds fun! But a low key one coming up sound s great, too. I really need the low-key times to balance the busy ones.

    That little structure is cute!

    Hurray for comfortable shoes any time, but especially for special events.

  5. When we lived in Kent for a short while, I loved to shop at Bellevue Square. I went the back way through Issaquah. I am so thankful for the spring blooms! The lilacs are stunning just now. Have a happy and restful weekend, Ellen!

  6. A slower weekend will be nice for you! Some months hold more than enough but the memories are sweet! A twelve hour trip to LA would be a lot! I hope you were close to an airport! Nice you saw your pop!

  7. Five lovely things in your line-up…from that people-packed weekend to a wonderful day with your daughter to the closing verse from the Word of Life! Enjoy your restful weekend, friend!

  8. A quieter weekend after a string of busy ones is something I’m enjoying just now. (Cup of tea beside me, feet propped up, and reading blogs!) The dogwood is truly stunning. What a gorgeous time of year this is. Enjoy your weekend of restoration!

  9. I love those whirlwind trip where I see so many people at once. But afterwards, I’m really tired. I hope you had a restful weekend. Love the dogwood. Our jacarandas are blooming. Every climate has its signature spring blossoms.
