When you move the party outside everyone is just a little more relaxed. The conversation starts to flow and people like to linger. There is nothing better than great food, great friends, and being outside. Continue reading →
Everywhere I turn I’m seeing Pink Flamingo’s, long necked, skinny legged, perfectly pink, iconic happiness and fun. I have seen so many awesome pink color infused flamingo post’s that I am unable to keep them to myself. I’m promising blissful moments and a smile on your face here. There is a little pink inspiration for everyone in this roundup, including a great write up about the designer and the history of our favorite little plastic bird.
So let’s get this party started and rock some pink flamingo love. Starting with something for my favorite place, the home, check out Bedroom Bliss from the flamingo infused blog Mrs. Lilien. With a blog header like this, you can’t help but love it.
Planning a Staycation right there at home this Fourth of July? Crank up the Red, White, and Blue with some of these colorful outdoor additions.

I hope everyone had a very special Mother’s Day. I sure had a treat. My two beautiful daughters worked together behind the scenes to prepare a grand cookout for the big day. By grand I mean lots of delicious foods with each of them bringing some of their specialties to the table.
They even went all out to make a lovely presentation. The feast included chicken and vegetable kabobs, ranch BLT pasta, deer burgers, and clean molten lava cake with strawberries. Needless to say I was more than full at the end of the night. Not only full of food but also full of pride. Pride in these young women who now have families of their own and navigate life as a spouse or mother.
It does not matter how old you get, you will always be your mother’s child. My husband and I are blessed to still have our Mom’s with us which is great because there are some days when I just want to go to Mom’s and let her nurture that kid in me. My mother has always been a comfort and a strength with her loving ways and faith in God. I hope I will also be a source of comfort and strength for my children and the generations to come. Who we are is very much a product of those who came before us. I was delighted to see a photograph my uncle put on Facebook of my grandmother Viola. I was reminded of how very much I resemble her and how seeing her in leadership roles shaped my thinking. When I think of my grandmother Florine I see the ultimate prayer worrier and my biggest cheerleader. I used to tell my school children that I hoped each one of them would have someone that would believe in them as much as my grandmother did in me. I hope each of you has someone special like that in your life.
