Lilac Bouqets and Birthday Wishes....

Our lilacs are in bloom... one of my favorite things to do is to cut bouqets and bring them indoors....
..... to enjoy their heavenly fragrance throughout our home.When I was growing up, we had a large lilac bush by the end of our driveway.... .... and my dad would cut bouqets and bring them in to my mom.... such a romantic gesture..... 24 years ago today, my world changed forever, when Andrew Robert was born into our family. My first baby, my heart, my life.
A tiny blonde-haired blue-eyed bundle of sunshine. Ah, the simple pleasures. I still like blowing bubbles, do you?

Happy Birthday, Andrew! Always keep a part of that childlike wonder with you!

To all of you, have a great weekend. Make time to blow some bubbles..... :)

Your lilacs are beautiful and I can just smell their loveliness. Happy birthday to your boy! My boy had a birthday just last week. He's 29! Enjoy your weekend.

Becca...I am on my 2nd bouquet of lilacs this week. I love their fragrance wafting in the house! Both my boys had birthdays in the last few weeks too. My oldest 32 and the youngest 28. They grew up way too fast!~Hugs, Patti

Becca what wonderful childhood memories the lilacs bring for you.
Happy Birthday to Andrew


Happy birthday to your sweet son. My lilacs are budding but I am still patiently waiting the blooms and the wonderful fragrance that accompanies them. I love how you have your plates lined up in the drawer. so clever.


Hi Becca,
Lilac are one of my favorites! Soon mine will be open so that I can enjoy them!
I'll also be planting the hollyhock seeds in May! I sure hope they bloom this year.

The pic of your son is precious! You are gorgeous, and I love the picture with the lilacs. I can't wait until ours bloom. It reminds me of my grandmother.

Becca, your Lilacs are gorgeous, but not as pretty as YOU!
