Hello Cupcake

It was my oldest daughter’s birthday this past Wednesday....I can’t tell you how old she is because a Mom never tells her daughter’s age on any kind of social media...unless that Mom wants to see an exasperated look on her daughter’s face along with a rolling of the eyes.  So in honor of her birthday,… Continue reading Hello Cupcake

Perennial Isn’t Just For Flowers

When I’m planting flowers in the spring, I always look for the perennials....those flowers that will come back year after year.  I feel like I am getting more for my money if I don’t have to continually buy all new flowers every year.  But because I have such a black thumb, it’s always a guess… Continue reading Perennial Isn’t Just For Flowers
