POTPOURRI

Who doesn't love taking pictures of things that make them happy? 
Here are some share-worthy photos of things that made me smile this week :)
...
Stems:
Last week, I bought a bouquet of these pretty flowers which remind me very much of Peonies. As the week went on, they started to wilt, so I cut them into shorter stems and arranged them in a milk glass goblet. 
They sit pretty atop my coffee table. 
My little love is learning Chinese:
He responds to several phrases:
"Ni Hao Bao Bao!" 
"Lai Bao Bao" 
"Zuo hao Bao Bao!"
Seriously? Such a smarty and too cute for words...
Special Delivery:
I feel so blessed to still be in contact with people who have made such an incredible impact on my life. One of which would be my 1st and 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Brown (Auntie;). 
I have SO many fond memories of her class. She was a warm, caring and never ceased to amaze me with her piano skills. 
Today we're still in contact and more recently have connected through Facebook. 
This week I was surprised and so touched to have received an early birthday present from her. 
Literally, the most adorable and unique hob knob, milk glass piece I've seen. I'm very picky about my decor, yet she found something I fell in love with! 
Thank you again Auntie <3
Cesars with Mom:
If we're Facebook friends, you might have seen my post about trying a recipe from a past issue of Martha Stewart magazine. I'm an admitted Cesar salad addict but haven't ever attempted to make it from scratch.
I'll definitely be adding this simple recipe to my rotation...
