A Saturday bouquet of smiles.

Dear friends,

My Saturday so far has consisted of sleeping late, drinking coffee, checking in on my favorite blogs, watching the Food Network for Sunday Supper ideas, gathering flowers from my cutting garden, and having this exchange with Kate as she walked into the kitchen:

Joan: Wow! You look nice.

Kate: Well, so do you.

We’re about to head out to St. Louis for a day of shopping to stock up on college supplies.

Do you think when my little CupKate is gone, Parker will tell his mother she looks nice before we go shopping?

‘Cause I’m just trying to prepare.

With gratitude {for a Saturday bouquet of smiles},

Joan, who thinks the quickest way to brighten your day is to cut some flowers and share some love

  1. “Do you think when my little CupKate is gone, Parker will tell his mother she looks nice before we go shopping?”. He will if he knows what’s good for him. And, he’ll get used to gracefully accepting more eyes-on attention than he is used to. All part of the learning curve, all part of the fun.

  2. Men notice very little. Teenage boys notice a whole lot less unless it’s on a little teenage girl they want to get to know. I can only remember one time my son telling me how nice I looked in a new dress. I told him it’s what I had purchased with the gift certificate he had given me. He told me what a good job he had done! But a son has a very special place in a Mom’s heart.
