A bouquet for Rachel.


( picked especially for you )


Rachel is one of my dearest friends, she's also David's oldest sister. She's a truly amazing lady. The sweetest mama to two very darling little girls. Kate, who is Annabelle's age and ever so full of love for life, and sweet little Maggie, just a few weeks old. Rachel is a devoted wife. She is a most dear and caring sister, daughter and friend. She is truly one of the most beautiful, and selfless people I know in the world. I look up to her and love her dearly. Rachel is also a lover of flowers. This post was made especially with her in mind. The goal, to cheer up her day, if even just a little. And ladies if you think of it, please pray for her.

She could really use some sleep.




( I have lupines and Iceland poppies and poppies and foxglove and purple irises all blooming right now. )



( and my English roses are just starting to open )



( I love this combination of sweet william and lady's mantle )

Sweet Chelle-- This is one of the nicest gifts I've ever been given! I love you dearly. . . and I AM getting a bit more sleep. But God sure knew what He was doing when He made babies so sweet and soft and yummy-smelling. It makes midnight cuddling that much easier! Thanks to all your friends (and my dear sis-in-laws!) for your thoughts and prayers. Lovingly, Ra
