{ Missing Her }

 Here is a photo I found today as I was going through my photos on my computer. This is my Grandma and her pride and joy Paco! This is on her 90th Birthday and she had her hair done for that day because we had a surprise luncheon for her in Costa mesa with all of her sisters and brothers. She had the best day ever and was feeling great at the time. This was one of the last photos of her before she became ill. We lost her just 3 days before what would have been her 91st birthday. This brought so many memories back and I miss her every single day. I am  and always will be the luckiest person to have had her as my Grandmother because she taught me so much and was the kindest and most loving woman you could have ever met.I just wanted to share this with you and this poem I had found. Remember life is too short and cherish everyday you are with your loved ones and make everyday count. I know she is in a better place ans she will always be in my heart!

If roses grow in heaven, 
Lord please pick a bunch for me,  Place them in my Grandmother's arms And tell her they're from me. Tell her that I love her and miss her,  and when she turns to smile,  Place a kiss upon her cheek And hold her for awhile. Because remembering her is easy,  I do it every day,  but there's an ache within my heart because I am missing her today.

Miss you Grandma
   your grandson Joe xoxo

{ Strawberries }

 Here is a quick post to share with you my first strawberries from my garden! It was really exciting to see them this morning and I have more on the way. I bought a strawberry hanging basket a few weeks back and I just wanted to see how they would do. I think I am going to buy more baskets next week.

 Its been busy here at home and I have not had much time for crafting and I have been in the yard quite a bit and Lola has been keeping me busy. here is a photo of the center piece on my patio table with some of my orchids in bloom and I love how they look at night with the glow of the candles. My orchids are now just beginning to produce shoots for new blooms soon to follow. I am so excited cause that mean I am doing something right and all of my flowers are all doing wonderful. I will share more photos soon. It looks like a beautiful weekend and i cant wait to garden in the sun.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and
