Q for quite a few birthdays!

It's the week for birthdays!
Sunday was our sweet Blossom's 19th, and we spent much of it enjoying food!
Our family brunch at "Betty Blue & the Lemon Tart" was amazing...

Blossom had time out with her friends on Saturday night, and came home happy and excited about opening her gift from Mr E and I...
It's a spinning locket, something she's wanted for years because it reminds her of Hermoine's 'time turner' from Harry Potter.
We ended her birthday weekend with dinner at a Thai restaurant, and home later for re-runs of our family favourite, "Monarch of the Glen". Our girl has grown into a beautiful young woman; someone we love spending time with. Love you, Bloss. xxxx

Today was sewing day for Wendy, Michelle, and I, and it was extra special because it's Wendy's birthday this week too!
Remember THIS recipe for 37 calorie chocolate brownies I shared last week?
Well, I made them for our morning tea, and served them with a simple cherry sauce, and some light cream...
They were yummy, which is good because I had printed up copies of the recipe and made up the dry mix as gifts for the girls to take home...
Love days like this. 
Good friends, good food, laughter, prayers, and love. 

It's Monogram Monday today, and this week we are stitching "Q"...

  1. Hello sweetie! Your Bloss has grown in to a beautiful young woman, and I adore her reasoning for wanting a spinning locket!!!
    I'm going to make some brownies too, and what a lovely idea to gift the dry ingredients and recipe to friends... think I might do that too, adding kindness to each day makes you feel real good doesn't it? Loads'a love sweetie! Vik xxxxxxxx

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
