Sweet and Simple

I love fresh flowers
They bring new life into a room.

My favorite spot to read my new favorite devo..."Jesus Calling"
Have you heard of it?  It's superb!

Sweet and Simple


What's your favorite flower?

Our little Valentine party.

Do small things with great Love
~Mother Teresa

I try to make the everyday events special, but on Valentine's Day, I made it even a little more special, just by making it a little more fun and pretty.

There were lots of candles....

and paper hearts with messages and for place cards

Remember those fortune cookies? They finally got to open one and read their sweet fortune.

There was lots of reds, pinks, and whites

and roses too!

Paper dictionary hearts, jazzed up and taped onto skewer sticks for the sweet cake.

Ohhhh, and the menu.....
Crab stuffed chicken breasts, wrapped in bacon.
Broiled Asparagus
Baked Potatoes
Warm, fresh Italian Bread
a little over the top, but soooo delish.

And for dessert....
mmmmmm hmmmmmm, sooo good.  :)

A sweet day, with my favorite sweets.

Not quite wildberry

Just when you think you got it all together, good, and right...

you realize (or in this case, someone makes you realize) it isn't right....there is an error

a flaw...

That means, back to the beginning. A re-do.
Start over.

BUT, after the flaw is pointed out and analyzed. You figure out how to fix it, how to make it right.
Even though that means more work.

But then that flaw grows on you, you like it.  Scratch that.  YOU LOVE IT. It's not really a flaw at all!  It's pure loveliness, even though it isn't perfect to what it was designed to be like.

And so from there, it becomes a keeper.  A show stopper. One that others love too.  It's not a flaw at all, it's just not quite Wildberry.

This glaze needs a new name, since it isn't quite wildberry.  Help us name this glaze!  :)
