So my little girl turned 4 yesterday and to say that she is proud is a complete understatement.

She keeps saying, “Now I’m taller! And I’m going to school soon!” She is positively itching to go to school like her bigger cousin Anna.

In awe of the cake. And boy was it simple to make! I am most definitely NOT a baker, so cakes are sort of a chore for me to make (I dread it).

This one was a strawberry cake (thank you cake box!) with cream cheese frosting. And instead of going to the trouble of doing fancy decorations, I stuck some peonies in the middle and called it a day.

Opening her gifts and loving every minute! She requested a doll, cards, and candles on her cake. And all her wishes came true!

My house smells like a flower garden right now. Really.

Tulips in the hallway…

And peonies everywhere else! Just because it’s that time of year!

And can you believe my roses??

The porch smells absolutely divine, let me tell you! I just stand there and stare at them. All day long.

I love them so!
