Here is my take on Mercy's Tuesday sketch from this week (MTSC97). I love the roses from Designed2Delight's Beautiful Life set. They are jus so pretty and so much fun to color.
My mom loved roses and had many bushes. She had a real knack with them. The sentiment seemed appropriate since I've been thinking about her a lot the last few days. On my kids' birthdays I really miss her and wish they had gotten the opportunity to meet her. I tell them about her, but it isn't the same. Yesterday was Lilah's first birthday and I was thinking how my mom would have loved to be a part of her life. Didn't know I was going to get all personal and sentimental with this post, but sometimes that's how things work out. I do have two big pots of meatballs (my mom's recipe) simmering away on the stove today, although I never can seem to get them to taste exactly like hers, hubby says I'm pretty close.
And here is a little picture of Lilah having her first ever cupcake! Oh my gosh, she LOVED it. There wasn't a crumb left. I think she couldn't believe how sweet it was, she hasn't had any sugar at all before this. I make her baby foods with whole foods. She was thrilled, and super wound up from sugar afterwards.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your week is going well!
