i ♥ work!

a quote by Frederick Douglass:

“People might not get all they work for in this world, but they must certainly work for all they get.”

don’t be late for a very important date!

my niece had her mad hatter tea party yesterday and it was the most fun filled children’s party i’ve ever been to.  and the most colorful!  big paper flowers and decorative lanterns were strung above the main table as kids ate with colorful mismatched place settings.  little flower arrangements lined across the center of the table adding even more vibrant colors to the setting.



the activities ranged from decorating your own hat, to face painting and of course as my niece had requested, a piñata!




my mom made a hat cake to resemble the invitations with a side of equally fun stacked cupcakes which the kids (and a few parents) gobbled up in an instant.

“Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.”
