My nephews were born today!!, and ohh the JOY of having teeny tiny babies around the house again, I'm in baby heaven!!.. it was a hard pregnancy, my sister in law had to spend almost six months on bed rest but she delivered two healthy gorgeous little ones and she is doing very well too!
Mikel and Lukas
Welcome to the world wee ones!!
"...together they traveled over the rainbow bridge and down the spiral staircase until they came to a big gate. The heavenly child felt a little bit anxious about leaving his wonderful heavenly home but with courage in his heart and his angel beside him, he went through the gate ... a little baby was born upon the earth! ...
as told by Barbara Patterson in the book Beyond the Rainbow Bridge
A new painting, a new style... I wish I had more time, the days should have 36 hours instead of 24. Months have passed, my studio and my blog have being sitting here waiting patiently for my return and believe when I tell you I miss my work and I miss you guys, but only time knows when I will be able to make a full come back, too many new things in our lives that require 100% of our attention... all wonderful things but nevertheless I wish I had more time..
and an unexpected visit from my nephew. A couple of years ago he lived with us, today he is a pilot with a very busy schedule and we were blessed with his visit. He has so much love to give, and the kids had an amazing weekend with him. We were in heaven!
Today we get ready for Spring's arrival, and here are some things we do to celebrate Imbolc .
We light candles around our house during the day.
We do our first spring cleaning: I invite my kids to sweep the house and we open the front door and sweep the dust out, this is to symbolize that we get rid of the old and we welcome the new in our lives.
Today is when we prepare the seeds we want for this years vegetable garden and start planting some of them indoors.
We hang Brighid's crosses in the doors that we use the most and above our chimney, and we have a small celebration before the day is over where we write one goal that we want to accomplish this year.
I also want to remind you about my GIVEAWAY so don't forget to leave your comment in the post below for the chance to win 2 of my prints.
