You're Invited to a Tea Party!

"Ava's Tea Party is about taking time. Making time.
Moments put aside to love and laugh with those you adore.
Bake a cake. Or open the cookies. Make pink milk and sing.
Wear pretty aprons and pick fresh flowers and above all else,

be glad,
give thanks
and cherish."

(taken directly from Ava's Tea Party site).

I was so glad to come across Ava's Tea Party site (via the blogging community). I am constantly reminding myself to slow down and to simply enjoy. To stop what I'm doing or not worry about what's next on my to-do list....but to just enjoy & cherish the moments I have with my family and my friends.

Hope you can spend a minute over at Ava's Tea Party site here.  I personally am setting a date this August to have our very own tea party, just me and my girlie (and possibly a teddy or two)!

Lemonade & Sunshine

I'm staying with my parents for a visit right now and after a bit of snooping around their place (grin), I came across this great lemonade dispenser!

This has summer written all over it (well actually it has lemonade written all over it...bwahaha!)!  And oh how I could have used this for my daughter's second birthday party last weekend! Lemonade & Sunshine was on the menu and we served plenty of it! This dispenser would have been perfect! Ahh well, next time right!

Here's a photo of the big girl at her party. Of course she didn't want her photo taken! Seriously can't believe she's 2 already (sigh).

I am such a fan of kids' birthday parties and events! I try to take that extra-step (or two) to make it really special with lots of decor and lots of goodies. Just needing a bit more time these days (smile). Nothing better than seeing your children having an absolute blast on their birthday!! Makes it all worth it.

Off to make some lemonade! It's a sun-shiny day and we have a date with the kiddie pool!! Thanks for stopping by my blog today (don't forget to grab a favour bag on your way out!)! Head over to Pen N' Paperflowers for some Lemonade & Sunshine inspiration. Jessica has amazing style!

We try to make a point of getting together at least once a day! Always there for me after a loooong night with the kidlets. or helping me get through another challenging day! Thanks Timmy (grin).
