mother's day weekend...

I enjoyed a beautiful Mother's Day weekend!
Jim and I went for a late lunch ~ early dinner on Friday by the waterfront in Plymouth.
Saturday while my fisherman was wetting a line, I spent the day puttering around my campsite.
On Sunday, Jaclyn came down for a visit and brought me these lovely flowers...

And when I got home this old treasure was waiting for me on the back deck...

My girl knows what I like!
I can't wait to go flower shopping this week!

We brought some lobsters home and threw some steaks on the grill too.  We enjoyed a few glasses of wine and watched the sun set.
It was a perfect weekend!

Jake had to work on Sunday, but he left me a special gift to open when I got home...

I can't wait to start watching!

So, tell me, how was your Mother's Day?
Thanks for visiting ~ have a wonderful week!!

The simple joys of spending time with those you love are the greatest gifts I recieved!!! A new Rose Bush from our son...a new fridge from my "Mr. Ed" (whether I wanted one or not)...Worship and rest. Mother's Day was truly blessed!
I adore your flower cart. . .enjoy Downtown Abbey! Lovely, tranquil post!

So happy to hear you enjoyed your mother's day so splendidly Sandi. Your children do indeed know you well - such wonderful gifts! The wine and surf/turf on the deck sounds fabulous, too. :)

You really did have a wonderful Mother's Day Sandi! The hydrangea was such a beautiful gift, and will look so great on your new flower cart : )

I loved seeing your trip to Brimfield. Oh gosh, my heart almost stopped when I saw that settee in the first photo! I also loved all the pretty chairs you took pictures of. I just don't get to see great pieces like that here in Idaho, sure wish I did though : )

Thank you for always leaving such sweet comments for me. You always make my day when you come by!
sending many hugs...
