My Header

Below was my former header and because I got so many questions about my header I decided to leave the explanation. With my new blog look my header will be changing from season to season or whenever I feel like changing it.

The following photograph was taken by my husband from our Bed and Breakfast bedroom window in Conwy, Wales. We were staying at Bryn B & B right adjacent to the castle wall. This was a trip we took in May of 2006 with 4 of our friends. While in Conwy we ate at the most wonderful restaurant, Bistro Conwy. We also tried to climb Mt. Snowden but the weather was against us that day.

My current header is of the tea table that I set for our latest Mennonite Girls Can Cook Celebrations Cookbook in July of 2012. The setting is in Bev’s yard in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

All the recipes from this tea that we enjoyed are in our new Cookbook “Celebrations”

My new header has two of our kids and their spouses and our son Dan with his fiance. We will be having a wedding in late June and our family will be a nice rounded our eight!

The latest header is of the Columbia River in Northeastern Washington State!

Now my header is from the Olympic Peninsula and a garden in Sequim.

My header will be ever changing through the seasons and life experiences that we enjoy…

My latest header photo was taken at our son Dan’s wedding at the end of June, 2015. The wedding was at a ranch in northeast Washington north of Kettle Falls. With our new daughter in law, Jamie, all three of our children are married and working on happily ever after!

This new header photo is still from Dan and Jamie’s wedding but this one has my extended family, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and grand niece and grand nephew!

It’s been over a year since the wedding and now my header is back to our table set for the cookbook a few years ago. We are headed to Indiana and Ohio for our first look at the Mennonite Girls Can Cook Play and who knows what inspirations I’ll get for a new header there.

  1. Ellen, I came back by for a second look at your header, and then I saw this link. So it’s WALES! Beautiful. There is a castle that looks much like this on Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. This is equally lovely.

    Sheila 🙂

  2. I have always thought your header looked familiar and now I know why! I visited Conwy Castle several years ago.

    Beautiful photo…I so love it there 🙂

  3. I finally read about your header because I too have been wondering about it but always thought it is from Europe. I was in England in April 2006 and now I want to visit again 🙂

  4. Hi, Ellen?

    I stumbled upon this blog in my search for something else.
    And now I feel like a intruder and I’m confused.

    After posting something, I got an email asking me to confirm or subscribe. I’m not sure what I’m subscribing to. Is this a personal family and friends blog? Or is it public?

    I see two conversations going on. How did the subject get on Molokans when it seems the topic was your trip to Wales?

    Sincerely, Leslie Brown

    • I don’t know how my header explanation became a place for comments about Molokans…
      Leslie.
      We really loved Wales!

  5. I love your current header of the family. However, you never disappoint us with any of your sights. I wish I could change my header once in awhile but do not know how.

  6. I like the idea of changing your Header photo each season and have enjoyed seeing the latest one for the beginning of the new year. May you and your family receive many blessings from the Lord during 2017.
