Flower Power Girl

Anyone who knows me knows that I just love color! For me, the more color the better. That is just one of the reasons I love this scrapbook page. It’s so full of color and it’s just plain fun! But of course the main reason I love this page is being able to look back through the years and relive the memories of my very special flower girl. 

The pictures are of my beautiful baby daughter, Richelle. Although my baby girl has grown into a wonderful, beautiful adult, I can still remember how much she loved being outside and she absolutely loved flowers. In these pictures, Richelle is at my parent’s house and she is helping her Granny plant some flowers in the front yard. My mom is having a hard time getting Richelle to actually plant the flowers because she was too busy putting them up to her face to smell them. She didn’t want to put the flowers in the ground. My mom spent most of their flower planting time chasing Richelle around the yard with all of the flowers in her arms. It was so cute to watch! 

Richelle still loves flowers to this day, some 28 years later. But now, just like all those years ago, she would rather put them in a vase then plant them in the ground. I am so proud of my daughter, because just like the flowers she loves so much, she has blossomed and bloomed into a beautiful young woman. My wish for her is to one day have a little flower girl of her own. There is nothing in the world that can compare to that!

 Thank you for joining me. Until next time…
