74.  Barrington Country Garden and Antique Faire

 There is so much to be grateful for here in Barrington, but sometimes it’s easy to forget to stop and appreciate our blessings.

67.  Make a Little Mischief

 I’ve been spending a lot of time with my baby girl lately. She’s the sweetest thing, but she loves to make messes. Even after herculean efforts to keep things clean, I find new cookie crumbs around every corner. She spills milk because it’s fun. She removes her diaper at the most inopportune times.

66.  Stop at Steeplechase Antiques
