I spent the afternoon with my beautiful Momma today and that always puts me in the best of moods! I love it when she's able to come over (she still drives!) and we are able to enjoy lunch out and just sit and chat. After some good-eats at a favorite local Café we returned back to my La Chaumière de Briarwood where I showed her how to navigate the pattern for the Tattered Pumpkin Pillow you see above. She's wanting to make a few for her friends and for some reason she thinks I can teach her, well, something. That is soooo funny to me as this woman has taught me ALL I KNOW!
My Mother lives life with a grateful spirit.
She always has.
Never a whiner or complainer,
she accepts each day as it comes
with more grace and dignity
than I will ever hope to have.
She is my hero.
"Speak only kind things," she says.
In just a week she'll reach a birthday milestone and at present I've been super busy planning her party. Her invite is above (still so thankful for learning Photo Shop and Paint Shop Pro all those years ago!). This birthday is a very a special one....
She's so excited as family members are coming in for the big day! We are working at keeping it positive and fun...a tad bit of a challenge as we are still marking many "FIRSTS" without my Father. Makes having my Mother still here so very, very special...
With the scent of Autumn in the Air we've planned the celebration using a Fall theme. Makes decorating and choosing the menu/food a little easier...and sooo delish!
More to share soon!
