Thank you all for the birthday wishes! It was indeed a lovely day. The day after my birthday, my girls surprised me with a luncheon at our favorite tea room! Madison, Peyton, Flynn, Kyrstin, and I enjoyed delicious food and beverages in the most quaint setting. I was so touched by their thoughtfulness.
My little Mocha is leash trained, meaning I take her out on a leash at all times. We live in an area with lots of wildlife, and I don't like to leave her on her own. Yesterday, Flynn and I were in the backyard while doing a sketch for her nature journal during her art lesson. Mocha was on my lap, and I set her down for a minute to grab some art supplies to carry inside. Mocha was uncertain of what to do at first, but when I told her to go ahead and run around, she tentatively started out, and they suddenly she realized she could run around and literally pranced around so happily! It was so cute. She kept looking back at me to be sure she was still ok, and when she was done, she ran to the steps and waited by the gate to go up to the deck. I was able to snap a few phone pictures while she was taking a break.
I received some happy mail this week from a dear, have -yet-to-meet-in-person, fellow fall-loving blog friend who is beyond talented in every area I can think of! Leslie, who blogs HERE and also has a youtube channel HERE, created this fantastic magazine herself! I have been enjoying it with my soft autumn blanket and my pumpkin spice coffee!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.
Happy belated birthday, Billie Jo. I am so happy your girls did that for you....so special.ReplyDelete
Love your little Mocha. She is darling and I know you love her to bits.
Happy weekend-xo Diana
It looks like you had a very good birthday. Nothing better than a blanket and coffee to relax.ReplyDelete
What fun to go to a teas room. Flynn is as tall as your oldest daughter, how did that happen so fast?ReplyDelete
Hi Billie Jo! Such cute pictures of little Mocha. Such a sweetie! I love that picture of you and your beautiful daughters. Looks like you were truly treated like royalty on your birthday. Have a good weekend!ReplyDelete
I’m glad to hear you had a fun girls day! Little Miss Mocha is to adorable! Maybe for one of Flynn’s next art lessons she should try to draw some portraits of the pups if they sit still long enough! ❤️ReplyDelete
What a wonderful surprise to have lunch at a lovely tea room with your girls. I love your cute shoes paired with the black dress by the way. I absolutely love going out for afternoon, but the closest tea room to us closed a few years ago and I miss it terribly. I'm not sure what kind of pie you have there drizzled with chocolate, but it looks wonderful! And Mocha is just the sweetest little pup. I hope you have a cozy weekend. Hopefully, it is cool where you are - it's still warm and muggy here. The forecast is promising cool, autumn weather for later next week and I'm so excited for it!ReplyDelete
