{two favorite things} lilacs & austen...

Because of spring arriving so early this year, the lilacs are almost gone now... so sad.
But I did take a few photos of when I cut some to bring inside! 
Oh how much I miss them already...
Also, I set up a little still-life with the lilacs & one of my most loved books...
Pretty flowers & a Jane Austen book... & I am happy! :)

I am so happy that my favorite month is here... 
I definitely have a few fun things planned this month! First of all my birthday... this year my mom, sister & I have big plans for tonight & tomorrow to celebrate... I am so thankful & I can't wait! Also, this weekend I get to see this sweet girl & a little later this month a friend will be visiting from CA, with her little boy! Plus there will be lots more time spent outside, enjoying spring. I love this time of year, it's a preview for summer!! Do you have any fun things planned for May?


  1. Oh, Sarah, these are all so breathtakingly beautiful!

    Gorgeous flowers and Jane Austen!
    I think the only thing that would make it better is a pretty tea-cup with herbal tea nearby. haha But, really and truly lovely, Sarah!

    It's my birthday month too!
    Hooray for May birthdays.
    I'm looking forward to this month too.
    Though, I have a feeling it is going to fly by.
    There are a few weddings, graduations, graduation prep, GED test taking, my birthday, and my fellow and sister are in a play this month too! It is a full month, but all exciting stuff.

    I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating your birthday this week! Hugs to you!
