My husband and I are in love with our children. We have been from the moment we brought them home and laid them in their cribs for the first time. Their youth and our youth spun from gossamer threads to be cared for knowing how precious and fleeting they would be.
I like to imagine so many of us have vintage nursery items displayed in our craft rooms as a reminder of our hearts capacity to love even more.
The quietness of my empty nest has settled around me once more. Waiting my companion for the sound of their voice, a glimpse of their face.
I have loved storks since he first came to visit me as a young military wife in a community of other Home Alone wives.
My Dear Friend Janet's husband and mine both flew in the same squadron. She surprised me with a baby shower having invited the Bobwhites and other of our friends. I loved that Janet had three sisters she absolutely adored, and one of them made a stork cake for me.
Just what my craft room shelf needed! A pink stork cute as can be and so very easy to make. I do think this will become an all time favorite. It could be because it reminds me of how truly blessed I am in this life of mine.
