Chickens, eggs & donuts!

When Joy invited me to come stay with them for a few days I requested that we have one of her famous donut parties!

So the first morning I woke up to the smell of fresh baked donuts wafting into my room and a very excited Gracie eager to show me her chickens & hunt for eggs. Gracie loves her chickens and is so proud of their beautiful eggs!

I followed her as she slipped on her boots and raced around the yard in search of eggs! Score, we found two!

Back inside, I thoroughly enjoyed the amazing spread of donuts on the table along with my cup of tea.

I enjoyed the donuts so much, we stopped in at Target to pick up my very own donut maker!

Let the fun times begin!

I also wanted to share one of my favorite walls in her home with you! I’m so inspired after this visit to get more of our family memories up on display!

Thank you Joy (Wildflowers Photography) for inviting me into your beautiful home.

  7. […] While in California I had the “joy” of finally meeting Joy from Wildflowers Photography! I had been in love with her work for a long time and was thrilled that we could finally see each other! My first couple days here were spent in her loving home brimming with happiness, laughter, and baby giggles… AND the smell of freshly baked donuts (deserves a separate blog post)! […]
