wildflowers and pie

This is how I spent my Mother's Day. First to the farmer's market "all by myself!". That alone time was glorious:) Then off to my favorite local cafe for paninis and banana creme tart with Dave and James.

from Susina Bakery (mmmmm)

Then we went to Descanso Gardens. I cannot believe that I have lived in Los Angeles my entire life and never wandered north to these beautiful gardens. It was the most perfect day. It is now ending with a delicious dinner made from my farmer's market buys and a refreshing bottle of champagne. Seeing how only two of us are of drinking age.... I think I know what tomorrow might bring. But for now, here are some peaceful pictures that I took today.

It's Crowded out Here

Berries of a Peculiar Sort

Badminton, Anyone?

A moment to Shine

My place in the Sun

To all the moms out there, I hope you feel loved and appreciated today (and everyday frankly).

Happy Mother's Day Christine (all all other Mom's who are reading). I'm so glad you had a good day. Isn't Descanso Gardens wonderful? I went there first as a Girl Scout and visited last about three years ago. Such a beautiful spot.

You're turning into quite the photog! I definitely see a line of cards in your future.
