what I'm doing...and what I should be doing

I should be weeding the garden, doing the laundry, and cleaning the house....



instead I am sitting out on the deck with a glass of wine and tucking blooming chives in a vase...


it's allowed though...right?


Celebrating motherhood simply and gratefully...

Happy Mama's Day to all of you!

xo,

Abby

And taking beautiful pictures! You can't forget that one ; )
I wasn't sure what the flowers were but once you said they were Chives, well, of course! Such delightfully light images. I wish you a wonderful Mothers Day as well, Abby.
