Happy Birthday Sister!

I have the World's Greatest Sister. No joke. I'm so lucky. And last weekend, while most people were celebrating the first day of Summer, we celebrated the day Desiree Dawn was born.
Truth be told, we try to extend the celebration as long as possible. Birthdays are a big deal in our family.
We planned on keeping the decorations low key, but then Mom remembered that she still had all my stuff we used for Grandma's 90th surprise party and she got to work.
We're getting really good with all this party decor. The only thing purchased was this AMAZING looking baby's breath. Have you ever seen it look so gorgeous?
I'm not the only person who thinks my sister is great! Her friend Matt, proprietor of La Maison Gray, created a soap in her honor.
 I FINALLY got around to finishing this necklace. Desiree had the initial inspiration for it (a couple of years ago), we just didn't know how to finish it off. Done. And she was surprised!
The weekend was filled with fun, food and family. What's a birthday without sparklers?
Homemade mint ice cream pie. To die for.
Happy Birthday D.D.! I love you!

Father's Day 2014

One of my very most favorite memories with my dad is the day he brought tricycles home for his girls. I don't know who was more excited, us or him. He had such a big heart and loved doing things to make other people happy. I love you and miss you every day.

Happy Fathers Day!
