Afternoon In The Garden

Hello world.  Happy Friday... And what a gorgeous day we have been gifted with this lovely day...It is sunny, bright and with the most pleasant temperature. 
 
It is nice to be back after a little break from blogging.  It was a much needed break.  It is sometimes a little difficult to keep up since my full time job demands a lot of my time and it was just becoming a bit overwhelming for me.  So please forgive my absence and a heartfelt thank you to those of you that reached out to tell me that I was missed.  I was so touched by this sweet gesture.  I consider myself very lucky to be part of this great blogging world.  It is full of amazing and kind hearted angels that give you a little lift when you don't even know you need it.  Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
 
And so today, I was truly inspired to grab my camera and create a charming table in a cozy spot of the garden to enjoy a sweet treat.  It was perfect to enjoy a warm cup of coffee with a delightful strawberry short cake that was calling my name.  Oh sweet goodness..  And I am so fortunate to have a hubby who is never embarrassed to sit at my girly tables to share some quality time with me.  Bless his heart because I drive him crazy with all my projects and ideas...
 
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.  Please enjoy the photos.

Quiet Moments

Hello all.  What a beautiful week it's been.  The weather has been perfect the past few days.  And my weekend trip to New York was amazing.  We had the greatest time.  And did I mention lots and lots of  walking.   So many fun and interesting stores and the food.  Amazing.  But I will share a few shots of my time there on a future post.

And of course, it's been another busy week around here.  Getting everything in order before my Mom's arrival tomorrow.  She is visiting from Florida and will be staying with me for a week.  I am so happy to have my mommy here with me.  I can almost smell the aromas of her cooking through the house already.  So comforting and so much happiness...  My heart is filled with joy.  

As I get ready for the busy week ahead, I took a few moments to relax and enjoy a little bit of silence.  And so I gathered few pretty porcelain pieces, fresh flowers from my garden, hot water for my tea and made my way to my bedroom.   My hide away.  My cozy haven.  I love to steal a few moments to enjoy an afternoon nap in my room.  It is such a peaceful and tranquil space.  The colors are light and soothing.  The linens soft and pristine...  Such simple pleasures......

Have a great weekend....
