A little bit of Lovely

Mother's Day was a simple, lovely day.
I went in my studio for a few hours in the morning to catch up on some orders, all alone.  That was nice.

I really wanted a picture of me with the kids.
Mike tried...he probably took over 30 of them, but no one was into it.
That's okay...at least I got one!  :)


We spent the whole afternoon by the pool.  I am reading Redeeming Love, again.  If you haven't read it, it's a good one.



I went to a garage sale on Saturday and picked up this little ceramic strawberry for 25 cents.  I told everyone it was my Mother's Day present.  Logan told me I was wierd.  Ha!


 My favorite presents are handmade, honestly.  I love when the kids make me stuff.  I save all of them.


Here's what we made the grandmother's...flower bouquets.


And then Mike picked up Outback for everyone for dinner and brought it to the house.  The thought of going out with everyone in a crowded restaraunt didn't sound appealing.  It was nice to have it here.

A nice simple day was all I wanted. ;)
