First Sign of Spring and Tea Time with Lily

Crocuses are said to be the first sign of Spring. However, long before the Crocuses bloom, the arrival of the Robins signal that Spring is around the corner.

Titi Evelyn (Auntie Evelyn)

My sister Evelyn came from Florida and spent a week with us. While I was busy, she would play with Kaylie and Liam. The usually aloof Liam would follow her around to hug and kiss her.

The Last Goodbye

Kaylie loves this dress and insisted on wearing it for my mom's viewing. As my sister and I were sorting through my mom's personal effects, we came across a pair of earrings that were so very pretty and perfect for Kaylie. Needless to say, she only wanted to wear this particular pair of earrings. This was her way of honoring her. She wanted to look her best and to her that meant wearing her burgundy dress and floral earrings. She was the only person wearing red at the viewing, but I couldn't deny her wish.
