Yep, I've had years of the most beautiful hand made crayon art work, macaroni pictures and hand made cards from my kiddos when they were little...just to name a few.... but if someone asked me which Mother's Day popped in my mind first. Here 'tis...
My daughter... she had to be 16 or 17 or so, I just remember she was of driving age... had snuck out of the house the night before. Now it's not what you may think, so hold on! ;o) We probably had the attic fan on, so I never heard her leave the house all mousey quiet. (ok in hind sight, that's not a comforting feeling!)
I'm always the first one up and it was such a beautiful Sunday morning, I was planning on taking my coffee out on the deck like I usually did. By the coffee pot was a note from my daughter that she was sending me on a scavenger hunt! So I followed each carefully hand written note from one destination to the next, little pictures were drawn in the margins as well. She sent me through my gardens, to my favorite bench I'd like to sit on, etc.... a nice little stroll.
I had an old mailbox in one of my gardens and I noticed the flag was up. This was my destination! I carefully pulled the door down and inside sat a little box. Anticipation had been building on my journey and I couldn't wait to see what was inside. My daughter had bought me the most beautiful cross necklace with little diamonds on it....it was breath taking!
Of course, one of my first little thoughts was... she spent way too much on me! Then I removed it from the box and noticed a little piece of paper sticking out from underneath... the final note... telling me in words and thoughts that were so "adult"... of how much I meant to her, etc etc. Oh gosh how I love that girl.
When our house was broken into and burglarized 3 years ago... this was the only piece of jewelry they didn't find... it was hiding in plain sight and I thank the Good Lord the thief's never saw this one. It would have hurt worse than everything else combined that they took from us!
Anyway.... I'd love to hear if you have a special Mother's Day memory... share with us if you have the time!
Blessings my friends and have a wonderful day!

I am always amazed when I see these pictures! I got the privilege of going with my daughter when she got another sonogram yesterday! And here's a little sneaky peeky at our newest little one. They don't want to know if it's a girl or boy this time... they want the surprise. Their son will be 3 in July and this one will make his/her appearance in September! This is a profile pic and you can make our the little nose and hands... my daughter says... "It looks like it's got a big nose!" hawhaw

Less than a month ago I posted some garden pics... well everything is coming up wonderful and thought I'd update them! Of course I'm still adding... I love love love flowers and plants! Enjoy!
I love using what I have around here to recycle the old into a new life!
Lettuce and spinach - and it's been yummy!
Did this one yesterday... old weathered basket... just add the pretty!
My husband built two simple boxes last year, added big 'ol pots and flowers!
Look what surprised me behind the air conditioner!
And look who stopped by for a visit during my flower photo shoot!
Why is it I can have 10 feeders out there and these guys will fuss over the same one!
