365 Days Take Three! -- Day One Hundred Ten

Hard to believe this girl (my cousin), who it feels like was just a tiny baby yesterday,
will be graduating from high school in just a few short weeks...

365 Days Take Three! - Day One Hundred Six

"A new baby is like the beginning of all things - wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities."
-- Edna J. Leshan --

I planned a baby shower for my best friend and yesterday we gathered to celebrate the upcoming arrival of 'Baby J'.  We don't know what she's having so the theme of the shower was "What's it gonna Bee?"  I had so much fun decorating and making the cupcakes and planning and am so excited to meet this new little one in just a few short weeks :)

365 Days Take Three! -- Day Ninety-Seven

*Point is, what's so wonderful is that every one of these flowers has a specific relationship with the insect that pollinates it.  There's a certain orchid that looks exactly like a certain insect so the insect is drawn to this flower - it's double... it's soul mate, and wants nothing more than to make love to it, thus pollinating it.  And neither the flower nor the insect will ever understand the significance of their lovemaking.  I mean, how could they know that because of their little dance, the world lives?  But it does.  By simply doing what they're designed to do, something large and magnificient happens.  In this sense they show us how to live.  How the only barometer you have is your heart.  How when you spot your flower, you can't let anything get in your way.*
