the weather was so nice earlier this week - almost summer-like. i spent a beautiful day with my mom, grandmom, and niece alaina...

... and lots and lots of butterflies!

when we weren't chasing butterflies or admiring flowers, alaina and i played in the sandboat her pop-pop don made her.

alaina showed me how to make "lovie pie", then made me a birthday cake and told me to blow out the candles.=)

after a rainshower, my mom suggested that she and alaina go look for rainbows - and they found one!

what blessings have you received lately?


  1. wow, what gorgeous butterfly pics, and quite an awesome little lady as well! i love posts like this...makes me think of all i'm blessed with. my immediate family is all healthy, my nephews are bundles of joy, i have been able to keep my job in this despicable economic climate, and i keep meeting lovely people like yourself. here's to all of life's blessings <3

  6. Aw, I love the butterflies. Especially the pic of the purple flower with the butterfly on it - so beautiful! Glad you had such a blessed day:)

  7. Thank you for these lovely photos!! Butterflies are all so beautiful. I like one fairy-tale what tells that butterflies are petals of flowers which just decided to fly into air. Alaina seems to be really sweet, children are full of pure creativity! You are a wonderful person, Kelli! Thanks for inspiration!
