Special Gifts

I had such a lovely lunch yesterday with my friend Lisa and her daughter Millie who have just become a Mum and Grandmother for the first time. I loved cuddling up with little baby Byron and spoilt him with a teddy some new clothes and a special photo frame for when I have the opportunity to photograph him next week. He is so adorable and didn’t cry the whole three and half hours I was there. My dear friend prepared an amazing seafood and mango salad for our lunch followed by the most scrumptious chocolate fondue with strawberries and marshmallows I could hardly move afterwards.

Before I left Lisa and Millie, they gave me a beautiful card that read..... To our special angel friend who has blessed our life with love and support over many years thank you for just being you!  And with it a lovely gift, one of my favourite perfumes “Princess by Vera Wang”, I was very touched, I’m truly grateful to share my life with such beautiful women who have endured so much in the past 12 months.

I didn’t return home until nearly 3.30pm, by the time it came for me to make some dinner for the LOML, well I simply wasn’t hungry, so I kind of cheated  a little bit and just ordered pizza for him. I felt bad after the 3 course lunch I had enjoyed. Though hubby didn’t mind as he very rarely gets to indulge in his favourite junk food, so my guilt didn’t last long!

I hope you’re enjoying your week my friends and share some here with me!

What an adorable little boy Byron sounds, and not waking up in the three hours you were there. Wendy it’s a wonder you didn’t go in and give him a little nudge.
The pics on your post are wonderful. Love them.
Hope your cooking the LOYL something nice tonight.
God Bless Eva

Lovely to have friends as kind as Millie and Lisa, seems they appreciate your friendship very much. It must have been wonderful to have a beautiful lunch and cuddle the newborn too.

Your lunch certainly sounded very special Wendy. What a precious little button Byron must be. Can’t wait to see some of the photography of him.
My week has been tremendous. I have had my son home from Darwin and we have wined dined and laughed together for the whole week.
