Random Photo Friday

Happy Weekend, my friends! Mother's Day Weekend, that is! May is moving right along, isn't it? Here is a quick wrap up of the week that was here in our cozy home...

Flynn and I made Madison's favorite pancakes for her before she left Sunday morning...

And just like that, she is back in the city she loves, safe and sound and happy.

We miss her like crazy, but talk with her almost every morning as Steve and I enjoy our morning drinks.
Madison gave us these perfect engraved spoons for our Mother and Father's Day gifts! Mine says "Mom's Coffee" and Steve's..."Dad's Tea".

Mocha helped me wash her bedding, and seemed to miss her too.

We are enjoying the abundance of fresher fruits here.
And if you have never bought and sliced a fresh pineapple...
You must!
There is nothing like it!

And, as always, I am late to the party. 
I finally got some prescription sunglasses.
Who knew?!

We enjoyed some spring weather this past week, and that meant some storms rolling through.
But enough breaks to enjoy a smoothie on the deck.

Happiest of Mother's Day to my beautiful mother, who I love more than she will ever know!

And Happy First Mother's Day in Heaven to Steve's Mum, the woman who raised the man I love, and who we miss every single day.

Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends.
Thanks so much for visiting!


  1. Happy Mother's day to you sweet friend! I love visiting your space. You always create such a beautiful life for you and your family. Have a cozy week and a blessed Mother's Day! ~Juli

  2. Happy Mother's Day to you dear Billie Jo! I loved this post-it is fun to see pictures of your family. I can feel the love jumping right out at me. Hope you have a great day- xo Diana

  3. Happy Mother's Day in advance, to a special Mother. You always put your family first and foremost and all your hard work shows in your precious children. Madison will be back before you know it, and what a nice gift she gave you in the spoons. Happy weekend!

  4. Happy Mother's Day weekend to you, Billie Jo!!

  5. Happy Mother's Day weekend to you too! I'm sure it'll be filled with love!

  6. Wishing you a wonderful Mothers Day weekend. Glad to hear Madison had a good trip back and is safe and sound. Love those spoons, what a great gift.

  7. Isn't it hard when they visit and then leave? Shame on them haha! One of our girls was just home for a few weeks and left . . . sadly though our little spaniel died suddenly a month ago and she ADORED my daughter so it was hard for our girl to not have her pup to snuggle with! My mom is spending HER first Mother's Day with the Lord this year - grateful for her legacy. Hope you enjoy beautiful weather and lots of pampering this weekend!

  8. A beautiful post, all about love! Happy Mother's Day to you!!

  9. Happy Mother's Day to you too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Happy Mother's Day to you, Billie Jo, and thank you for including godmothers in your post - for those of us who weren't blessed with children of our own but who have been blessed with godchildren. I have already received a beautiful card from my oldest goddaughter, who is 37, and who never forgets me on special days. Have a wonderful week-end.

  11. A great week! Have a wonderful Mother's Day! Thank you for being such a great and supportive mothering role model for me!!
