In which I take far too many photos of my flowers...

 Happy Good Friday dear ones. 

I'm sick and need to be resting because our weekend to come is full, so bear with me while I make this rather quick.  I shared in my previous post and video, that I was still trying to decide on my flowers for our Seder dinner and Easter table.  In the end, I came home with tall showy flowers that would never work in a real life dinner setting because you'd never be able to see those across from you, but they smelled amazing and were the exact bouquet my heart leapt at so I brought them home anyway.  We've enjoyed them on our kitchen table the last few days but this morning as I was setting the table, I scooted them over to our side table and that inspired me to quickly tweak a few other things, as it often does.  (grin)

I thought I'd share some photos I snapped while in process, setting the table, and figuring things out.  (My previous post contains links to the nails I've used in the place settings.)

 I wasn't sure how long I wanted to leave the kraft paper menu up... but once I placed the huge jar of flowers on this side table, I had an idea for the weekend...  I grabbed my roll of white paper and a charcoal pencil and quickly scribbled something new for the weekend's festivities... I loved the simplicity of "It is finished." 

I had to share this photo really quickly before I sign off.  My man and I have spent a crazy amount of time at track meets this year and I made him take a photo this week.  His face kind of says it all... we sure do love our kiddo but we are starting to feel like we live in sport stadiums! Ha!  We're gearing up for another rainy out of town meet on Saturday and then anticipating Easter Sunday with more family.  This will be our first official holiday without my Daddy in my home, sitting at my table.  We will be seeing him at the Alzheimer's home but it's such a new stage and if I think about it too much I cry.  Feels so off to me and makes me happy our weekend is to be so busy.  I think God kind of knew that I needed to stay on the go. Isn't He amazing... He always knows just what we need, even we have no clue. 

I hope you all have a lovely holiday and enjoy time with your loved ones. Happy Easter.
