Sunday Safari

Happy New Year.

Happy 2012!
It is the year of refinement at my house.

It is the year of the Water Dragon.

A Black Swallowtail emerged yesterday.
A lovely birthday surprise.

It is too cold for her to go outside.

She will be an inside butterfly.
I am so happy I have flowers for her.
I am so happy to have a butterfly in the house.
There are 24 white roses in the living room.
A birthday gift from my husband.

There are chocolates too!

One a day will keep me smiling
in 2012!

A new critter has come to live with us.
My daughter made Fuzzy Lamb.

Fuzzy Lamb is my new love.
She is comfortable on the love seat with Alpaca Penguin.

Our reading room is coming together.
My daughter and son-in-love sent this painting for our new room.
It is titled, "Beekeeper".
I have new dreams to dream.

My son and daughter-in-love sent me amazing essential oils.
I have my own scent! My daughter-in-love knows me!
She and my son made the recipe. They are alchemists.

doTerra products are exquisite.
My loved ones spoiled me on my birthday.
We visited on the phone and sent hugs.
I love listening to their voices.
I love hearing about their adventures.

My husband took me shoe shopping.

I needed some short black boots.
I also bought a new outfit and a hat!
New clothes for the New Year.

We start a new year today.
We begin a new story.
May your 2012 be filled with magic.
May your 2012 be filled with joy.

Happy Sunday Safari.

Dear Sherry,

So pleased that you enjoyed your birthday yesterday. So many beautiful presents, you are truly blessed.

The chocolates look absolutely delicious and white roses (how perfect).

Will butterfly be okay? Will you be able to release him/her at some point?

Happy New Year Sherry....may 2012 hold all your dreams and more.

I love the beginning of your new story, Sherry! What a wonderful birthday - complete with butterfly and my favorite white roses (not to mention the chocolates, anti-aging serum, and sweet lamb)! Now I'm wondering about the hat... Hoping 2012 brings you many good things.

Happy New Year, Sherry, and a very Happy Birthday to you! It looks like your children know you well--what lovely, thoughtful presents! I especially love the painting. And a house butterfly--what a great way to start the New Year. May the magic of your special day continue through this coming year.
