I Love Thursday #180
This is the 180th post of things we love for the week. We post each week along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color and several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Lily of the Valley! I finally have some of these lightly-scented Lily of the Valley plants thriving in our garden bed. I know they are quite prolific and will fill in the area rather quickly, which is just fine with me. These lovelies lined the driveway of my parents’ home and I recall picking the dainty small flower bells as a child. They make me smile and think of my mom who would place the short stems in a shot glass. HAHA!
Blogger friends! This beautiful notebook journal cover was made for me by Brenda at Songbird Designs. Isn’t it just gorgeous?!! The stitching is exquisite and it looks even better in person. I am so amazed at her incredible talent and her overly generous nature. I’m on the hunt for the perfect lined notebook journal to insert under the flaps. The size is just perfect, too – I think she could make a fortune selling these . . . don’t you?
The Arts are back! My great-niece, Sierra, is a professional ballerina. (Yes, I love saying that and bragging a bit whenever I can!) They are back to practicing and will soon be back to performing as before. I noticed that Broadway shows are back, as well. Soon, all the Arts will be available for our enjoyment. Yippee!
Liliana! Speaking of great-nieces, we have another one who just graduated this past weekend. We proudly share Liliana who is ready to take on the world in a positive way. She actually finished her high school courses in January and has started in an Esthetics program. The best is yet to come.
It’s a great time to be Colt! He always has a sweet smile for everyone (and those blue eyes!!). Batbaby is available with a ball to throw, a bounce in his step, and a big smile on his face. For Sue’s birthday, Andrea got her three kiddos in Batman regalia and sent her a snapshot. No harm came come with these three plus Colt on the watch! Addison and Dominic are still too cool for their pool. They both just tick back and enjoy some juice as often as they can.
Baby Chase likes chillin’ in the Elmo chair while his sister is not enamored with it one bit. She wants to sit in the chair! Talking to Chaser while he’s in the bouncer is fun and big sister, Addison, shows him how the toys work. When Chase isn’t in the bouncer, Addison puts her babies in and helps them to bounce since their legs aren’t nearly long enough. Dominic was one tired boy after last Sunday’s activities. We try to wear them out when they visit us! Finally, Dominic went to the outside Library program where they learned about parrots. He colored his parrot at home (Addison did too but I didn’t see the picture). They love visiting the library!
