    I love that flower! I think that’s an Allium? I saw them for the first time last Summer and was determined to plant some, but then learned that they’re bulbs that need to be planted in the Fall. Maybe next year!! :)

    I love that sharing inspiration, fosters inspiration.
    Booyeah to those who encourage people to aspire to greater things.
    A big rasberry to those who put others down or put unrealistic expectations on people ESPECIALLY new mothers!
    {{{ttthhhhhhhhh~Jewelz pokes tongue out at those who criticize
    without an ounce of constructive thought}}}
    I’m up on my soap box over at my blog.
    This post is an Ode to Kal Barteski
    because both you and Kal inspire me daily.
    Whoot Whoot
    Keep It Up Girlz
    Love and Sunshine coming your way Ali.
    Thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness. Thank you for sharing the things that inspire you.
