On April 1st, 2017
our beautiful Mae Mobley turned seven!
She's THE most beautiful girl in the world....
according to the parents who adore her!

We had a really good and positive three month check up
at her Neurologist!
She has been totally seizure free for four months,
so we are going to try reducing her strength of Zonisamide
from 75 mg. down to 50 mg.
Prayers said and fingers crossed......

Easter decor is beginning to make an apperance here at home....

Did you happen to see these adorable bunny straws at Target?

Just a stunning afternoon here in the great state of 

 It has been SO long since I treated myself to an ice cold
how fun to add a touch of whimsy with the bunny straw.......

We so love our view of the greenbelt!

Sometimes, I feel like a queen
being able to enjoy a gorgeous afternoon
and read a good book...
thinking back on all those years behind a desk...
That's a gift in retirement years!

I baked a Buttermilk Pie for the darling.....

Speaking of the darling....
HE finished my favorite puzzle yet...all by himself!
This is just too pretty not to frame!

Everyone wanted to enjoy the outdoors on Saturday
since it was another beautiful spring day...
our infamous storms are going to be rolling through
starting in the early evening through Sunday.
We had many errands to run and the last stop
was to Market Street for Steaks, potatoes, fresh asparagus
and a gorgeous Strawberry Cake!

I love this time of year when spring plants arrive...
Market Street had THE most gorgeous coral hibiscus ever!
I must go back and pick up a few!

Bo was the first one to take a dip in the pool.....
I am going to note this...April 1st and
his first swim of the year!

It was a beautiful evening for cocktails poolside....

Bo got a new bowtie...."Bad to the Bone!"
Hope y'all had a great weekend too!
