140511 Mother's Day Flowers

I do hope you all had a fantastic Mother’s Day and were overwhelmed [like physically overwhelmed – literally covered up with cards and stickers] with your children’s unconditional love and kindness [bursting through your door and waking you up first thing in the morning] – just like I was.


I’m not exactly sure what she’s implying, but I try not to read between the lines.

I’m taking the day off of blogging (I’ll be back tomorrow) because I spent a good portion of my weekend preparing for the Picture Birmingham event at Silvertron Café tonight.

Silvertron Event 3

If you’re local, please come eat dinner and say hello! You’ll be helping rescue victims of human trafficking just by having dinner out, and I would really love to meet you! (And I’ll tell you all of my favorite things to eat at Silvertron.) I’ll be set up with all of my Picture Birmingham products (100% of the profits go to The WellHouse) from approximately 5:00 – 8:30, but I’ll be there a lot earlier getting situated.

(Is "getting situated" a southern thing to say? Or do all of you say that? This is important.)

In the meantime, I leave you with a set of photos I took Saturday night.

Because after all, yesterday was Mother’s Day. So I should be fully within my rights to barrage you with pictures of my beloved children.

And also, I needed somewhere to put them so I wouldn’t lose them.

So here you go…

‘Tis the season for wishes and dreams in Dandelion form.











May all your dreams come true. And may you remember to never breathe in right after blowing Dandelion fronds.

  1. I say “getting situated,” but I’m southern, so I don’t know if that really helps with your survey. :)

  2. Happy Mother’s Day to you! Love the pictures!
    I get situated all the time in Illinois. But I grew up in Southern Illinois and people in north central Illinois often tease me about my southern way of speaking :-)

  3. I say get situated and I grew up in Idaho. Also, my father-in-law totally said, “move that a titch,” last weekend, and I thought of you.

    1. Well I grew up in the South and I now live in Idaho, and I have news for you native Idahoans: Idaho really belongs in the South, in many many ways, right down to the accent and the hospitality.

      Although I must say, I have never heard the phrases “these ones” and “those ones” used so often until I moved here. It is getting to the point where it doesn’t even sound weird to me. ::shudder::

  4. We get situated too. But I’m from South Carolina and apparently have the strongest southern accent around. I met Ree Drummond and she said I had the “most adorable southern accent she’d ever heard.” But I think that was code for “you are obviously a backwoods redneck”.
    Well, so be it.

  5. Great pictures! Love the dandelion wishes. Yes we say getting situated. Fixin’ to get situated would be southern. If I ever say fixin’ people look at me funny. My mom and Grandma say it all the time.

  6. I love the pictures! I hope your event tonight is a success!

    We say getting situated in Wisconsin too!
