What a blessing!!!  While I was away helping my daughter & son-in-law with their sweet little 2 week early baby girl, I turned 60 years old!  My daughter, unbeknownst to me, emailed my family and friends and asked them to send her one or two thoughts/memories of their relationship with me over the years.  Amie handed me this jar on my birthday and told me she was hoping to get 60 responses.  She got way more than that!!!!  And because her laptop doesn’t have “word” she had to hand write every single one of them, cut & fold them into strips to fit into this jar.  I read EVERY single one of them, and cried through most of them, lol.  WHAT A BLESSING! I told her it was the best gift ever!!!!  THANK YOU AMIE and to all of you who sent her thoughts/memories.  I laughed, cried and was touched by all of your sweet words that I will dearly hold onto! xoxo

Two Weeks Old


Time to get back to work!  I’ve been with this sweet little girl and her parents for the last two weeks and it was the most precious, special time ever!!  No doubt you will all be inundated with more pictures of this muffin girl!

“Thank You”


I want to give a shout out to my daughter-in-law, Tara for making the soaps for our “thank you” favors for Amie’s baby shower.  She did 5 different colors and 5 different scents!  They were beautiful and smelled wonderful!!  I bought thank you cards (Joann’s) and cut the cover of the card to fit into those cellophane bags you can get in the baking section at Joann’s.  Then I made the tag cards using a “business card” format on the computer and just tied them to the bags.  You have to check out her website!!!!  She’s does a fantastic job and is always posting a yummy recipe!!!  Follow her here . . .


Baby Shower – Blessings!


Sooo cute!  Amie’s mother-in-law, Diane made this diaper cake!

So many blessings already delivered for this sweet little one coming in October!

Baby Shower – More . . .


The cake is by “Cakes by Karen” in Northglenn.  It was yummy!!  Amie wanted strawberry cake and it had Bavarian cream inside with buttercream frosting.

I found these hanging metal shelves on – love them! There are actually 2 of them – one is on the other side.


This was our “thank you for coming” table – it’s hard to tell but the flower wreath has fairy lights in it.


The basket is filled with homemade soaps by my daughter-in-law (more on those later), they were thank you favors for the guests.


This is actually Amie’s bike – I filled the basket with hydrangeas and made the welcome sign.  We had it on the porch as guests arrived.


I found this adorable “free download” sign and tags on Pinterest:


Here was the set up – hard to tell from the pic but there are fairy lights intwined in the greenery and roses.
