photos and musings

Happy Mother's Day! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend, full of love and relaxation! I was spoiled rotten and I am so full of gratitude for my family!




This weekend we headed to the gorgeous garden center near us called, Culver's. Amazing store, full of gorgeous flowers and so much more. Its a trip full of inspiration and happiness. My grandparents were gardeners. Their flower beds were so stunning. I know that my love for flowers comes from them and spending time with them in their gardens.
These beautiful branches (above) were in the parking lot of Culver's. You could not have asked for a more perfect picture taking set up! I used my camera phone to take all of these photos, along with an app called Hipstamatic. And yes, the sky really was that blue!


Ranunculus planted in in the front yard. Having new and different plants at our choosing has been a ton of fun. I did a pretty good job of keeping our flower purchases under control. :)


And a look at a new tiny mole on the little man. Just above his eyebrow. Its so precious. Never thought we would get to the point that a mole on his face could be considered precious, after everything we have gone through. Grateful for this new feeling though. I am so blessed by this amazing gift from God. How did I get so lucky to have him entrusted into my care?

Hug your loved ones today. thanks for stopping by!
