This past week has been a whirlwind of excitement, joy, and great things happening and coming! I’m so thrilled to be in a position in my life where I have SO many joyous moments to share and wonderful news to talk about that I literally don’t know where to begin!
First, I’ll start with my beautiful Mom (who will always be my Mommy, no matter how old I get). Her birthday is today! Happy Birthday Mom! I’ve talked about my mom a few times through my blog journey, and I’m so thankful and happy that she was born, and that I was born from her out of the millions of other moms out there. I truly think I was picked out perfect just for her, as I can’t imagine anyone else being my Mom. She was my first best friend (along with my beautiful sisters, who I adore) and she has taught me so much, given me so much, and loved me so much that it’s impossible for me to put into words how grateful I am to her. She’s always my number one fan, no matter what I’m doing with or in my life. How lucky can one girl get? If you missed my previous post showing off my beautiful Mom, you can find that here. We had her birthday celebration a little early because of her work schedule, and my hubby’s work schedule. (They both work too much and too hard!) Here she is at her party, showing off the pretty rose cupcakes I made for her, isn’t she BEAUTIFUL? I know I’m biased, because clearly I get my awesome looks from her (hehe) but even if she wasn’t my mom I’d still think she’s a total babe and rockstar.
And above she’s proudly showing off the red and black button bracelet I made for her. Isn’t she a doll? I love her to pieces. She’s been such a great inspiration in my work and I can’t thank her enough! You can find bracelets in my shop right now, HERE. I’ll be adding more this week!
And if celebrating my mom wasn’t enough great news, GUESS WHAT?! I have 5 new babies! Okay, no, I didn’t forget to mention I was pregnant, and I seriously doubt I could hold back bitching for 9 months about carrying FIVE, so I’ll be more clear. I have 5 baby kittens! Remember my little Clover I told you about here, awhile back? She had babies! They’re around 6 weeks old right now and about as precious and adorable as you can get. Here are a few pics of them (I seriously took a million but I’ll spare you a huge post of all of them).
Aren’t they so sweet? I’m absolutely smitten with my kittens! 🙂 I plan on contacting a local feral cat rescue in a couple of weeks (once the babies are 8 weeks old) and having them picked up/spayed or neutered and hopefully having Clover returned and the babies placed for adoption. I’d like to keep one, but I’m debating on if that would be fair for my existing old man Peanut, and little rascal Jingles. Mom is going to take the sweet little grey one with the orange splotch over it’s eye and under his chin.
And if that wasn’t enough good news – my new bracelets have been selling so well thank you to some of my super loyal return customers! So happy about that, and I’ve loved hearing the feedback! Dan is gearing up for a month long trip to Miami which I can’t join him on because of Peanut’s health issues, it just wouldn’t be fair to him to have him boarded or take him on such a long drive. I hope that Dan at least gets to come home on the weekends, but I’m going to take it as a great experience for him and something that will enable me to focus only on myself and my shop for that entire month! Good things are coming, and I’m feeling great myself. It’s going to be a great year!
Smile, and pass it on ❤
