Seems like only yesterday I welcomed a beautiful baby boy into my arms – into my life & into my heart. And – I will never forget the happiness that took over when I heard – “It’s a boy!” The boy that I’ve always wanted – a son – a big brother for any siblings that would follow. Side-note: Being the oldest in a family of five – I always wished that I had an older brother.
Happy Birthday to a wonderful human being that I am proud to call son – my favorite son. ;) <3
To celebrate him in his next phase in life – I created this fundraiser a couple of months ago.
Feel free to share the link and/or donate if you can.
Every little bit helps.

The day is almost over here. But – I say it’s never to late to celebrate!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms & mums ;) & to your moms & mums here on Earth or in Heaven.
Blessings to one & all.

There’s a Costco being built just outside my neighborhood.
Last weekend as the girls & I were heading out to make a Dollar Tree run – we noticed a helicopter nearby.
At first I thought it was heading to the hospital.
Upon closer inspection I realized that it was at the Costco.
So- I made a U-turn & headed back home to fetch my camera.
And – I caught a few shots of men at work.

Hope all is well with everyone.
Before I get to my post – I was wondering if any of you that follow Skye at Sanctuary of My Heart or Oh, The Things We Shall See have heard from her recently?
I haven’t seen her post or visit since October.
I know that she was frequently on the WP & when she was going to be away – she’d mention it.
I’ve tried contacting her & no response from her.
I’m just hoping that she & her family are well.
Just over a week ago, Sylvia shared a post that included a painting that she was working on. I commented & mentioned that I had worked on something recently.
So – today I share with you MY SPRING MASTERPIECE!
As inspired by: Spring Flowers Vases

Hi Peeps! ;)
This year the girls & I submitted a Peeps scene for a local Peeps event.
We didn’t place. But – we still have a chance with PEEPleS Choice.
Only time & votes will tell.
Regardless of the end results – we had fun working on our pieces & can’t wait to enter again next year.

Love is truly priceless
Love gives life brightness

Last year I made capirotada for the first time.
Since it was simple & delicious – I decided to make this a yearly tradition in my household.
This year – Alexandria & Victoria helped me make it.
Once again – YUMMY!
