Lukie (also known as “Mr. Blue Sky” in our house) turns 10 today, which is a huge deal because as he explained yesterday, “I’ll no longer be a single digit!”
And as is the tradition in our house, the birthday boys picks all the meals for the day.  Some highlights are Coffee Cake, fried potatoes, hard-boiled eggs and cranberry juice for breakfast, cupcakes for the class (with blue & green swirly frosting, of course!), and ice-cream sundaes for dessert.  It’s good to be 10!


Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
