I couldn't think of a better weekend to share this post again.
Happy Mother's Day, friends!
One of my greatest blessings is being a mom . . .
. . . a mom to 4 beautiful children.
Truth be told, I was fearful when I found out that we were going to have a little girl 6 years ago.
But if I knew then, what I know now . . . I would've only smiled with sheer delight.
We were not only blessed with 1 little girl, but 2!
And they are amazing . . . beautiful . . . and loving . . . sweet . . . and oh so lovely.
What a wonderful gift we were given to raise two little ladies.

I recently felt inspired to have a Spring Tea Party with my girls.
Oh what fun we had!

Petite Chocolate Cakes

There's something magical about dressing up in your favorite Spring dress, sitting at a beautifully set table, and enjoying a relaxing visit with your daughters (friends, loved ones) over sweet treats and lemonade (or tea).
With sunshine flooding our dining room, Miss Charlotte, Miss Lauren, and I sat together for a spot of "raspberry lemonade."
~ pink sugar rimmed tea cups ~
I suspended several tissue paper decorations over our table.
They were quite beautiful when the sunlight shown through them.
They made our "tea time" experience extra special.
We talked about our favorite colors and candy, baking, and pretty sprinkles.
Miss Charlotte loved the white china . . .
. . . and I loved getting to share with her that Honey (her grandma)
gave them to me when I got married to daddy.
. . . and that it was Honey's china first. It was a gift to her from her mom
when she got married.
Miss Charlotte so lovingly inquired,
"Mama, can you give them to me when I get married?"
I heard my heart sing.
And our sweet Miss Lauren Jane. . .
I couldn't be more proud of her innocent enthusiasm to join in the fun.
Have you ever seen a two-year-old hold a tea cup so well!?!
We giggled and laughed . . .
. . . and laughed and giggled.
The laundry didn't get done that day;
nor did the vacuuming, or the dishes.
Instead, I spent the afternoon playing "Tea Party" with my little girls.
. . . and I'm so glad that I did!
I hope that our "Tea Party" inspires you to have one too!
LET'S STAY in touch!
