Yesterday was such a lovely day! Even though I'm not a mother, I love Mother's Day because it's a day to honor mothers and women in general. My mom spoke in church and gave a really good talk. The weather was absolutely beautiful, so I sat outside for a while after church and took the opportunity to take a few pictures. My mom is wearing a new shirt that I bought her for Mother's Day; she looked great in it!
Here are the tulips and irises that my sister Sharon sent our mom. They were absolutely beautiful, but they didn't last very long enough. I love, love, love flowers but I seriously feel sad when they die!
With that in mind, that's why my sister Kristin's Mother's Day gift to our mom was so perfect: paper roses that stay beautiful and never die! Kristin is a jack of all trades and is so talented. She recently learned how to make paper roses (from this website) and has made at least 80 of them in the past few weeks. She made a beautiful wreath for our mom which mom decided to hang in our downstairs bathroom. Also pictured is the Mother's Day card Kristin made for mom, and a paper rose wreath Kristin made for her front door.
Kristin also sent me some a few roses which I have in my room. I told Kristin that they are like paper endorphins because it seriously makes me happy to look at them! :)
