Thankful Sunday, on Tuesday

Hello! Well I skipped my Thankful Sunday post because in a word the day was SCRUMPTIOUS!
It was one of those days that you wish you could just hold the sun up a little bit longer. Our weather was picture perfect . We started the day with Church, and then we went to a mother/daughter brunch hosted by a sweet friend at her beautiful home.

After that the girls and I went home to join the boys in some much needed yard work. So this week I am thankful for friends, family and my garden. In the summer it is one of my favorite places to be. It's our little piece of peace. Where everything is OK. So I'll share my thankfulness with you in the form of photos of a perfect day.


Miss Emilia showing us exactly how to eat a cheerio. Top picture, one at a time, or bottom picture , by the handful!

And one person I am truly thankful for is Bella. Her heart is so gentle and loving. Here she made three stones and placed them with our sleeping angel. One for Sweet Carly, one for my Aunt Emily, and one for Pablo. Three very special people who we will miss forever. She even sprinkled rose petals over them.


A little gardening.
And a bubble to end a perfect day.
