Monday's Matra......Make a Wish with me!

My little dude is growing up and this is a photo that I will treasure for years...There is something about a homemade gift by your child that is priceless!  I am hoping that Noah always remembers that creating the gift for a loved one or stranger is such joy!!!!! 


He piped these little stars for 90 minutes while I was napping and to see his excitement when I awoke to it was the best part of the gift!  He gets it, That inside joy of giving to others!!!!!


As many of you know, my husband is an artist and cakes are always so fun for our birthdays!  This is my most recent addition to my Auntie family circle, Dearest Lizzy!  

MAKE A WISH!!!!


A birthday princess!  I cannot wait for her next visit to my home to get out the glue and fabric and begin a baby quilt.....I love 3 year old little girls and the joy in their eyes when I introduce quilting!!!!!


So much KINDness in my home last night and everyday!!!! Thank you friends and family!!!


Wait a minute.....How did my birthday wishes to you all show up on a gift bag?


HI from the peripheral birthday party goers!


There was fine dining....


"Oh my gosh..." so much love from Blog friends in my front yard!

and oh so much LOVE!

Today I am 38 and cannot wait for the coming year to see what adventures, friendships and miracles come our way- we are in this life roller coaster together stitching-sisters!

Love, Em
