Celebrating April Birthdays...
Happy Birthday to my younger sister Marie. On Saturday we got to spend part of the day together to celebrate. We always love to shop the craft stores and Michaels did not disappoint. We are too funny selecting what we love and then telling one another how we really don't need said item/s. Finally we have our selections and can move along to other adventures.
I had a very special place I wanted to share with Marie. These Demoiselle Cranes are my favorites at the Auburn CA Bird Sanctuary. Marie said they look very Art Deco and I completely agree. I just knew she would appreciate this beautiful gem just minutes from the hustle and bustle of traffic and shopping crowds.
Mr. C and I stop here quite often when traveling up and down "the hill". We have watched it grow and become very popular through the years. I never tire of stopping and enjoying the calm and beauty of it all.
I was very happy to see my beautiful sister enjoying it as much as I enjoy it. Here we are sitting on a bench just soaking in the amazing exotic birds and koi fish. Then it was off to lunch and lots of chatting and laughter. I treasure my times spent with Marie. I have lots of sisters. She lives the closet to me so I get to see her more often. We live an hour and a half apart so usually meet in the middle. The weather was perfect and the company was perfect. Hug your loved ones and let them know you love them...often.
Spring is in full bloom and pollen sharing. I will share what Mr. C and I did on Sunday very soon. Not much crafty going on here except my mailings in April. I keep forgetting to take photos however you can believe I am making and mailing lots of postcards, cards and pocket letters this month.
I hope you are enjoying a beautiful Spring. Embracing Spring Sunshine Bliss...
