Seven Years Ago, Today...

...my life changed forever. I became a mother. Thank you, my dear, sweet, oldest girl for being my guinea pig. And for forgiving me my mistakes and loving me anyway. You'll never know the depth of my love until you become a mother yourself. I pray that will happen for you so that you can experience this change in being as I have. Happy Birthday, gorgeous girl!


So, because of said birthday, the girls and I went over to Fort Worth's Botanic Garden. Gorgeous! Beautiful day, beautiful surroundings and beautiful company! What more can a girl ask for? Besides winning the HGTV Dream House.

Last picture of my girls, but I love this one! It absolutely captures how they truly interact!



I love this clustered daffodil. It's called "Baby Boomer" and it's a cross between a daffodil and a narcissus.


Seeing this urn somewhat appeased the dull ache of longing I've had for England since last month. (Or maybe it made it worse. Jury's still out.) Most of you know that I went with some girlfriends last April and today brought back alot of memories. The weather was so similar to what we experienced and walking around a breathtaking garden seemed familiar.



OK, I lied about the last picture of my kids thing. But, doesn't this bench rock? Katri, if I could, I would totally buy this for you!!! Huggy hugs.

These pics look like they were taken at the Dallas Arboretum. I haven't been there this year.

Love that close-up shot of your girls. Precious! You need to have that enlarged and hanging in your house somewhere.

Wow can you believe how fast time flies? Laura came and gave me a hug the other day while I was sitting down, and she is now taller than me while I'm sitting! When did that happen?

Your girls are so absolutely gorgeous! No doubt. What a beautiful outing on a beautiful day. It was so great to see them in person on Friday. They've grown so tall!

Your girls are sugar and spice, for sure! Take it from me--mother of a "snakes and snails and puppy dog tails" boy. Love that garden urn!
