Coming up Roses

I had the most wonderful Mother's Day. I am sick as can be, but none the less it was quite special. I think my favorite part was just seeing the excitement on the kiddos faces knowing that they just may explode in anticipation on what they had in store for me.  The Mr went above and beyond with gifts. A new everyday dinnerware set which I just adore. I must say this image does not do it it justice. I was also sent this from a brilliant illustrator, calligrapher and friend, Kaitlin Slattery. It's the quote I grabbed onto the year I started blogging and it has made an appearance still after many blog redesigns. It rings true now just as much as it does then.
