Summer is in Full Bloom...

Everyone has those little things in life that make them happy....
"you don't?"...."I know you do...just think about it....like....extra frosting on top of your cupcake"


that type of thing....
the random...insignificant....total smile making thing....


One of my favorite "little" things are fresh flowers in my home...the cheer me up...even when I'm feeling a little down in the dumps....

when I have fresh flowers in a room...I always stop to smell them or take a look....

especially blooms from my Pooh and Beanie Bushes....


After Pooh was born....I perused the farmer's market for hours....until I found the perfect rose bush for him....it would there...blooming for him each spring and summer....bright and cheerful just like him....


When we lost our Beanie this Spring....I found it comforting...when Beanie's Bush was placed right next to Pooh's....Now Beanie can bloom...and continue to make me smile.....


This week especially were some beautiful blooms courtesey of Pooh and Beanie....






Fabulous....Amazing Bloggers also are something that bring a BIG smile to my face...
