We had a small birthday celebration for Jess this weekend. It was her 36th, and it was a nice day for all of us.
I haven't been shopping in a long time, so I gave Jess some things I had that I thought she'd like. One gift was a pair of my earrings - they are Jess' favorite earrings, and she borrows them all the time for special occasions. Jess loves all things miniature, so I gave her a locket that I've had since I was a little girl. Inside the locket are miniature Rosary beads. I'm not sure who gave them to me, or where I got them from, but they sure are special to me and have been with me for a long time.
Picked her a rose from my rose pot along with a poem...
The lily has a smooth stalk,
Will never hurt your hand;
But the rose upon her brier
Is lady of the land.
There's sweetness in an apple tree,
And profit in the corn;
But lady of all beauty
Is a rose upon a thorn.
When with moss and honey
She tips her bending brier,
And half unfolds her glowing heart,
She sets the world on fire.
Francesca is almost 3, but she wanted to go in Mia's high chair for awhile, so I put her in there. We have to keep them small as long as we can, right?
There were Yummy chocolate cupcakes.
Love what this cup says. What you can't see is the unicorn on the cup saying the words.
I thought Jess would be amused when I shared this picture of her with the purple wig when she was 16, twenty years ago. ; )
It was really a nice day with family.
