This past Sunday I hosted a small luncheon for my soon to be daughter-in-law, Queen of Braveheart. It was just the occasion to finally finish all the little details in the house that I have wanted to get done but have put off. Pictures hung, curtains bought and hung, and trying to make our ugly bathroom look better....things like that. I am also making the dessert for the wedding. Cake, cupcakes and cookies, so there has been lots of baking. It would have been nice to blog about it all, but I have just not had the added time to get it on the computer. But today I will try and catch you up!
The spring trees have bloomed at our new home and cheered me with their gorgeous color.
The smell coming from the lilacs is intoxicating.
Gorgeous Magnolia Tree
Breakfast in bed on mothers day..thanks hubby.
Cake. I made two cakes. One Chocolate with Chocolate Mousse filling and a layer of raspberry AND a Lemon Pound Cake with Lemon Curd and a layer of raspberry. I gave everyone a slice of both and then let Queen of Braveheart pick which one she wanted for her wedding cake. She thought the lemon one was nice and summery...and so it is.
We had a lovely, lovely day and are really looking forward to the wedding in one month.
And thanks for all the thoughts you sent to my Dad, he is doing great, he had a rough go with the chemo, but is slowly turning the corner and doing much better all the way around. He is one special Dad and I look forward to a dance with him at the wedding.
