Have you ever gotten one of these for your birthday? I'm not sure if this wonderful gift was more for me or...


for selfish reasons

but it was so cute I had to capture it on film.


A couple weeks ago, Little Missy and I picked some roses out of the garden and did a little mother-daughter floral arranging.

She had her vase for her room:
She just jam packed it full of flowers and I had to admire her carefree attitude.
I tried to be a little more "artful" about the whole thing, but definitely don't have my mothers eye for this kind of stuff.

It's always a treat to have fresh flowers around. I don't have a green thumb, but when I was younger I use to dream about having a big flower garden in my yard so I could always have fresh-cut flowers around my house. Here's to the one bush in my yard that fulfills that dream.

So pretty! Maya is such a cutie and I love both of your arrangements. :) A backyard garden would be a delight!

If today was your birthday and you brought me corn bread I am going to be very upset! Please tell me... I have been a little out of the loop as of late. I knew it was coming up but now I think I missed it.

I LOVE those full-of-love gifts only a child can give. That's great you caught it on camera! Maya is a cutie, and what a clever project to make floral arrangements.

Ooh...those are so pretty. I love the color of those roses! And I LOVE cherries. I get addicted and can't stop eating them and then sometimes get bowel problems, if you know what I mean. We just picked a huge bag from my mom's tree. I love summer!
