paper flowers and heartstrings







i received these beautiful flowers for mother's day!  but they weren't created by Mother Nature, they were made from magazine pages by my sweet son spencer and his adorable girlfriend tatiana.  as the story goes, he was in charge of cutting the flowers and the leaves, and she was in charge of the gluing and arranging.  i think they make a fantastic team, don't you?  

and while i absolutely love the flowers,  what really tugs at my heartstrings is they shared their imagination and gave so much of their time to create this for me.....and speaking of time, our sweet daughter melissa drove a five-hour-round-trip on sunday just so i could spend the day with her!  our kids have been adults for several years now, but as a mom, i think you always keep them under your wing, no matter how old they get.....and when they give such gifts of themselves, there's no greater joy in knowing you are so abundantly blessed!

thank you to my little dutch sweetie,  melissa, spencer, and tatiana
for a truly fabulous mother's day!!  love you, xox
