happy list

a collection
of the little things that have made my week

oh my-
what a month…
it’s been 
insanely busy
with work
and very hard-
mother’s day 
blindsided me
but bits of brightness
have gotten me here-
to the unofficial start of 

a little gift
of a full bunch
of the sweetest smelling bells

love for mum

may is a busy one in our family
my parent’s anniversary
mother’s day
my mum’s birthday
(also my sister’s and a few great girlfriends…)
so, while there has been a pathetic lack of blogging
we haven’t forgotten to celebrate…
mother’s day was spent on cape
with a lovely little luncheon outside
for my mum, mother-in-law and gram-in-law
my father and i prepared
chicken salad bursting from fresh, flaky croissants
a crisp rose (well, not for me!)
and a lemon-berry tart for dessert
this weekend
 was spent celebrating
this special lady
a bit more
with lunch
a mini bedroom makeover (more soon on that…)
and gardening
i just love this high school pic of my mom
i think she looks like ali macgraw!
lots to catch up on here
but couldn’t let another day go by without a shout out to my mum!
