However we did manage to make a nice dinner and set a festive table. Aidan picked the flowers on the table and arranged them just so, and he also put the silverware on. He is such a good helper!
I also discovered a new use for the huge box of jello molds I bought at a yard sale this summer - tea light holders. They reflect the light beautifully! I think they are going to be a new favorite special-occasion standby.
As far as how the first day went I am not sure yet. As I write this he is still driving home. (It is 7:00) This is going to take some getting used too............
P.S. Thanks for the couch and rug love. The couch is from a thrift store- I found it years ago. But good news - there is one almost just like it at the thrift store in Roseville right now! The rug is from IKEA, it was super cheap, but it is nice and warm. However our corners are full of hairy dust bunnies now, it is almost like we have a dog. Maybe we should just get one.
But you get the idea right?

Well, in this case, that just isn't true.
I didn't want to risk mailing your gift, so I took a picture instead and when you come for Thanksgiving I will give it to you then. My photo doesn't show you very well, but the bowl is cream with subtle leaves imprinted inside of it. It is very simple and lovely.
Just like you.
Happy Birthday Mom.
