Easy Spring Gift Box

I fell in love with this beautiful lattice gift box in the silhouette store.  And, it just happened to be the right size for a darling album from one of Olivia’s sessions with our favorite photographer, Tiffany Henning.

I cut the file out using my silhouette and adorned the top of the box with a die-cut Nestability flower, 2 tiny punched green leaves, and a center pearl.

This little box is easy to put together and packs a definite “wow” presentation- perfect for Mother’s Day!

Two Photos and a Lifetime in Between

Mother’s Day is around the corner.  My mom has always treasured this little grouping of photos that sits nestled in the edges of her dresser mirror:

Mom Gardens

I was probably 15 months old, happily exploring flowers at my grandparent’s garden.  The little girl on the carousel is my mom.  I recently asked her why the photos are taped together and she replied, “well that’s easy- I love this photo [of me] because I can see you in it!  You’re mine.”

I snapped this scene a few weeks ago of Olivia and my mom at the Botanical Gardens:

I’m struck by the similarities- a flower scene and so much love.  I have a feeling that one day, this photo will be pinned to my dresser mirror as well.

First Mother’s Day

Mother's Day

Photo taken by Karen Hendrix Photography

I love you so much, Olivia.  I can’t wait to meet the beautiful, confident, caring, and intelligent woman you become.  In the meantime, I’m cherishing your sweet smiles and little gurgles, as well as sneak peaks into your blossoming personality.  You are already so independent!

We spent our first Mother’s Day at my parent’s lake house and strolled through a garden of irises.  Your Dad gave me the most perfect little gift in honor of our big day: he crafted a beautiful rose out of paper.

What a beautiful reminder of my sweet Olivia Rose.
