Floral Cake

Almost 28 years ago, we bought the most expensive cake I've ever purchased.

It was COVERED in flowers. ;)

I didn't want to cut into it!

Picket Fence Studios To the Lovely Couple, Stamplorations Celebrate Big die, Copics

This beautiful cake image is from Picket Fence Studios.

Better Together Yummy Image

I'm all about this yummy image from Polka Dot Orchard:

Polka Dot Orchard Happy Together, Technique Tuesday Bubbles on the Border bubbles, My Favorite Things Horizontal Stitched Stripes, Copics

In my dream body (not Marlena's)...I would eat chocolate and drink coffee with zero ramifications.

Alas, reality doesn't reflect that.

A girl can dream tho. ;)

Goodbye Sweet Boy

Ugh, friends, my sweet Chewie passed away in his sleep.

 My Favorite Things Rainbow Die, Darice Pet Theme dies, Ink Road Stamps The Upside Down

 His was the purest love, next to Jesus, in our home.

13 years of overflowing love coming from a tiny Shih Tzu, who adored my three grown daughters since they were preteens. ;(

 We are so sad, but extremely grateful to have had his 'lil jingly presence for so long.

Give your fur baby an extra hug from me~
