….AKA Carla is in heaven
I look forward to visiting the Buttonwood Farm in Griswold CT every year now for their amazing display of sunflowers, like SO much. I even have it as a repeat event in my ical. Nerdy, I’ll give you that. But soooooo worth the nerd factor to not miss this simply breathtaking event!!
This year was almost a bust for me, and I was a sad mamma-jamma. The week the fields were supposed to be in their height was when I was away in Virginia….. however, I decided to give it a go anyway and am I glad I did! After spending the last part of my vacation with my inlaws at the beach, Georgie and I took a trip over on a weird, foggy day.
Now, fog is my FAVORITE weather, if it even counts as weather. Fay-vor-ite! Like my favorite. Not sure if I am clear on that one. I love it. Like, ALOT.
So while it was foggy at the beach what would the odds be that it would be foggy at the fields? Right?
I said ‘please’ AND ‘thank you’
Just when you think that it’s not humanly possible to love another human being more, you’re like- SERIOUSLY? And my heart feels like it’s going to explode. Look at that little face!
and then she’s like ‘mama this is me being a sunflower’
Still being a cutie little sunflower
If you know me? You can hear the noises I am making!!
Am I serious? Why yes I am!!
If I could shrink myself, this is who I want to be. Just keep the short jokes coming, I know
I can admit that I am living vicariously through my kids- they are so much cuter than I could ever have dreamt of being!
Being able to spend a late afternoon with my daughter, doing something that I love SO much, in a setting like this was the equivalent to one of my favorite days ever in my life.
What else can I say about that???
