Pink Liberty

My husband and son surprised me with roses and cards a few days before Valentine’s Day.  This is a busy time of year for us.  Nine years ago we got engaged two days after Valentine’s Day.  We brought our son home from the hospital on Valentine’s Day seven years ago.

We were busy with my son’s birthday celebrations which included The Lego Batman Movie and a party for his friends that I wrote about here.  It was nice to have the roses over the weekend and they inspired my pink shoes that work so nicely with my new Liberty Print shirt from J. Crew.  My love of Liberty prints rivals my love of stripes and leopard print.  I have featured several other Liberty prints in May Liberty Flowers, Santa Barbara Mother’s Day, Liberty and Lavender, Fiddlehead Farm, Stripes and Liberty, and  Paisley Liberty

Mani Monday – 7th Birthday Edition

This weekend we celebrated my son’s seventh birthday with a cake decorating party at Duff’s Cakemix.  I was amazed at the focus and attention to detail that each of the ten boys brought to their masterpieces.  They had so much fun and were so helpful to one another.  They managed to share the coveted lego candy that, of course, most of them needed for their designs.  It is inspiring to watch them and their unbridled enthusiasm.  It fills me with hope for the future.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Creekside” by CND Vinylux.

Happy Monday!
