Happy Mother's Day to all the special Moms this weekend!

We've had a week full of celebrations!

We went to the Biltmore Estate to celebrate
my mother in law's 80th birthday this week!

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed a beautiful evening!

My hubby was sweet to bring me a bouquet of red roses this week
for Mother's day AND to celebrate the day we met!
We still like to remember this special day, too
and it was 15 years ago on May 15th that we met
and started this amazing adventure!

Wishing you ALL a special weekend!

(A close up of the sweater I am wearing! lol)

Enjoy your time together with family and friends
and join me in a prayer of thanksgiving for all of our blessings!
