Happy things

March 15, 2016

The world is so full of a number of things,
I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings . . . 
Robert Louis Stevenson

The Save the Dates have gone out. Aren't these two adorable?!

We celebrated our daughter's birthday . . .

A birthday bouquet . . .

Tulips say spring is almost here . . . 

We have a couple short trips planned soon. My bronchitis seems to be wanting to come back for a visit, so I am drinking lots of fluids, taking lots of remedies, and trying to rest.

Bronchitis, you are not welcome here! Too many happy things going on for you to be hanging around!

Hope you're all having a beautiful week. xo


  1. Hello Deborah!
    Oh how I love tulips and yes they welcome spring so beautifully.
    How sweet to celebrate your daughters birthday with that bouquet of blooms! Happy birthday to her! We just celebrated our daughters as well.
    Have a wonderful trip and I agree with you ..bronchitis go!
    praying total healing for you xo

    All my heart,

  2. Dear Deborah:
    Yes! Lots of fluids and sleep as well. Looks like you have some very important events coming up so stay healthy!

  3. Lovely! Lovely! Lovely!

    Thanks, Deborah, for your beautiful photos this morning!


  4. Beautiful blooms loved the bouquet, the tulips and ornamental cabbage look amazing. Thank you for your visit and your encouraging comments on my hair, just need to sort the wardrobe out again now as some colours just don't suit me anymore. Take care and hope you feel better soon.

  5. Oh nasty bronchitis...boo hiss

    Beautiful bouquet of tulips...they are so cheerful and yell scream.

  6. So many happy things! Bronchitis better stay away.

  7. A very cute couple! Exciting to get the save the dates out ... I just received one from my niece for October! Happy Birthday to your daughter. What a beautiful springtime bouquet :) Take care of yourself Deborah! Hugs to you,

  8. Your beautiful flowers are just what I needed to see to brighten up this rainy day!

  9. How precious are the Save the Date photos? So adorable! Lovely dinner for your daughter - I love the tablecloth and all the pretty flowers. I do hope Mr. Bronchitis does not come back to visit! Take good care. xo Karen

  10. Yes, what an adorable couple and happy times are ahead. Happy birthday to your dear daughter.
    Tell that bronchitis to take a hike, Deborah! Hope to see you soon, sweet friend. ❤️

  11. Your birthday bouquet is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing the beauty with us.
    Such a sweet save the date photo of the happy couple.
    I hope you begin to feel better for the trips you have planned. My husband gets bronchitis a lot due to the saw dust he works with and I have him take thieves essential oils that I get from Young Living, it works amazingly. It's an issue we deal with every winter.
    It was lovely visiting with you Deborah.
    Take care and God bless you~~

  12. Dearest Deborah,
    Lovely photos of happy events and glad you celebrated your daughter's birthday at your home.
    Yes, bronchitis can linger for quite a while. I had once a six week treat after having worked only one week in North Dakota at -40ºF. Never again!
    Why don't you try the use of some fresh ginger?http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifestyle/10-benefits-of-ginger-that-you-didnt-know-about.html
    Wishing you well soon!

  13. Dearest Deborah,
    Just like to add my Pinterest link where you find also several dressings made with fresh ginger so you can apply those great benefits: https://www.pinterest.com/mariettesbackto/delicious-healthy-food/

  15. Beautiful birthday table for your daughter. Happy Birthday to her. Love the adorable photo. Sure hope you feel better soon. I'm taking my meds and my hubby says a good patient. Haha.
    Blessings for a nice weekend!! xo

  16. Oh what an exciting time for your family! The tulips are absolutely stunning as well as the birthday flowers...love the purple cabbage or kale in the arrangement. I hope you are feeling better very soon!

  17. Oh Deborah, the Save the Date card is adorable! I know you are so proud and excited. Happy belated Birthday to your daughter. The bouquet is totally gorgeous!
    Hope you beat that silly bronchitis!
    Happy Spring and Happy Easter week to you.
