My daughter and I were celebrating her birthday by going on a garden tour in Sandy. When we arrived at the first garden, no one was around! I soon discovered the tour was going to be held the following week. Sigh . . .

We left and continued up the mountain (Mt. Hood) to locate a cabin by a creek that was for sale. I have always dreamed of having a cabin by a creek. We found it…such a lovely spot. I fell in love with it. However, the house was a fixer-upper and I didn’t think my husband would find it ‘adorable.’ I didn’t tell him about it after returing home…will wait for the right time.

We left the quaint cottage and continued up the mountain. We stopped to eat at a wonderful cafe, and then visited the book store and antique store next door. We stopped at the GoodWill and purchased a couple of books, and then went home. Not all is lost when making mistakes. We made the most of our day by  enjoying each other’s company, saw beautiful scenery, ate yummy food and spent time enjoying ourselves.  So, don’t dispare when making boo boos. Capture the moment and don’t look back.  🙂 leila
