When I got back from California, there was a delightful surprise waiting for me as a Mother's Day gift! Our Gypsy and Dewdrop completely cleaned up my studio and garage from the chaotic mess left behind from Birdsong!
Before I left on my trip, I was drained and exhausted from the prep and work, and excitement of Birdsong and I just wasn't up to cleaning up before my flight. Then, I was even more tired from a week of fun on the trip and dreaded facing the rooms as I'd left them.
It was the best gift ever to get home and see how thoughtful my girls are!! They cleaned, swept, and put all the furniture back in place. I don't know how the two of them managed to bring the big dining room table from the garage to the studio on their own.
Not only that, but she saved up some floor sweepings while she worked. Its funny because when Beth and I cleaned the room to get ready for Birdsong, Beth told me that there was enough detritus on the floor to make a whole project. And after the party, there was apparently even more.
Now, that is a true souvenir of the weekend! And one of the sweetest Mother's Day Gifts ever.
But that isn't all, today is shaping up to be quite the Mom's Day. My family made an early morning run to a farm to buy us some hens! Yep, the ladies are finally here.
I'll have some photos of Ariel, Small World, Unicorn, and Mator soon. (guess who just got back from Disney and was full of great names for the new pets?) But for now, I'm off to enjoy my special day and hang out with my loved ones.
I hope that your day is a special one too.
