Today I hosted a Mother's Day lunch at home.  The weather is glorious at the moment, so we sat outside on the back verandah and basked in the sun.
Only a few photos to share.  Once the lunch was in swing, I forgot to actually snap some of our guests! 
I had a beautiful day, just perfect actually.  Time spent with my family is just so precious.
How did you spend your Mother's Day?


  1. oh lovely!!! Happy Mother day! The painting is very pretty... You seemed to have a fab day!

  2. Beautiful painting. Your lunch table looked very beautiful. I got breakfast in bed from my 5 kiddies (bacon and eggs that they had cooked themselves) and we enjoyed the lovely weather with a picnic lunch in the park. I meant to get photos too but like you forgot. Oh well, sometimes the memories are even better!
