My Week in Photos // Botanical Beauty, Burgers, and Birthdays!

Happy May, friends!  I hope yours is off to a spectacular start!  As I prep this post it's late Thursday night and while time won't allow for me to put together a typical Five Loves on Friday post, it was too beautiful of a week not to capture and share here!  

So here's my week in photo form...

Love me an in-car picnic at the lake with my loves on a chilly afternoon.  Good food, better view, and the best company is my favorite combo!

Botanical beauty always takes my breath away!  Our sweet family walk and talk at the local botanical gardens this week was incredibly refreshing!

Today is an Extra Special Day!

Today is my sister's birthday!  I cannot even put into words how much I love her!  She was my first friend and will forever be one of my favorite people on the planet!  I was so touched that she wanted to spend her birthday with us.  My parents (aka: the host and hostess with the mostest) threw such a fun party for her and for her daughter who shares the same birthday month.  What a joy it was to celebrate both my sister, and my niece's Sweet 16 too!  I am so looking forward to making many more memories with them in this fresh new year of their lives!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Wishing you a marvelous first weekend of May!
