Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you're all having a sweet day! ;o)
As for me? Well, I've been up since 5:30 this morning getting my daughter Stephanie off to work. She's my sweet one that would sleep for 14 hours straight if nobody woke her! Needless to say, I make it a point to get up with her so she's on time, besides I drive her there too. It's all good; as I mentioned in earlier posts, she works at Starbucks - free coffee for me - Yay!
So when I returned home, I didn't go back to bed as I found this lovely little blog party that's happening today. Well, I found it late last night, so I didn't have anything prepared! No time to create with my hands - too time consuming. But, I happily sat at my computer for the morning and created digitally. Here it is!
I know Valentines Day is traditionally about romance and the one you love, but today I decided to create about the other one's I love too - my daughters; especially since the suggested theme is 'Birds of a Feather'.
The 3 birdies represents me, Victoria and Stephanie. We truly are Birds of a Feather! Their crowns are pink for sweetness and innocence of age. My crown is a different color as age and experience has weathered it's appearance somewhat. We're sitting by our nest that represents our home; all 3 of we girls LOVE to spend time at home and never wander far for long. The rest of the page surrounds us with femininity and Victoriana; each of us are girly-girls at heart. Finally, the saying that surrounds us is:
"Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best." ~ Henry Van Dyke
I came across this quote when I first started blogging and surfing around. It really spoke to me because in a world where there is so much competition and so little self esteem, raising 2 daughters to be themselves and be proud of who they are, has always been my main mantra in nurturing their life journey. That quote said it so sweetly to me.
What fun I had creating this! Thank you to all who took the time to come and have a peek! I'll be visiting you as well.
Have a wonderful weekend! ;o)
