Wow, what a week, goodness gracious.
I have exciting news to share with you... I am a Grandmother!!!
I was able to hold her after she was only 10 minutes old,
and instantly fell in love with precious little, Kaia Mae Saephan.
Such a miracle and a blessing. She was born on May 31st at 11:07pm. She weighed,7 Lbs.,4 oz.
A new little family of love.
We couldn't be more thrilled!
She is doing well, still in the Hospital, as she has had a few difficulties with her digestion, so they are keeping her until everything is A-Ok. Happy that she doing so much better the past few days.
This Grandmother has been a tad bit worried, for my daughter and her. Trying hard to stay positive, and keep my mind off the "worrying". I know everything will be just fine, it's just the "waiting" and feeling "helpless" I guess.
So.... today, I thought I would do something just for me...
Our weather is absolutely gorgeous today, so lovely that it brought me outside, with the camera in hand, to capture some of the beauty right outside my own front door.
My Roses are coming along nicely today. These have the most amazing smell... Yum.
Look at the little daddy long leg at the top! They are harmless to humans, in fact, I remember playing with them as a child. Wouldn't catch me playing with a spider now though... ewww.
And my "fairy" roses are just starting to bloom. I adore this rose bush, so much in fact, that I dug it up from my old house, and took it with me. It gets huge, with hundreds of tiny pink roses scattered all over it. Quite amazing. And that is it's real name too! I love it!
Sage is still in full bloom, I love how things have gotten overgrown, and are so full, that they are coming through the fence. I have always loved a cottage garden, so full, and a little wild. All of these are taken on the outside, so you can see how full they really are.
And so fragrant too. I could spend my day just sitting outdoors, watching nature. Truly, I am a total home body. I love being at home. If I didn't have to leave sometimes, I would just stay right here, and be perfectly content doing so.
Even Truck is loving this day.
I wanted to do something "just for me" today, and enjoy being outdoors, so I thought.... Tea for 1! That's it, something special just for me!!!
So I nudged the table right along side the garden bed, drug out some of my vintage linens, a few sweet treats, and made myself a special little celebration.
These a Tangerine shortbread cookies, delish, and butterflies! How could I pass them up...
Peonies,roses,phlox,villarium, lavender, and a few springs of green for fun. This is what's left of my bouquet from the farmers market last Saturday. I am savoring the last of these peonies. They smell so heavenly.
A couple of Ginger Snaps...
And some lemons...
with cream please...
Hope you all enjoy your day too!
