First things first – since this blog post lands on Mother’s Day, I’d like to wish each and every mom out there a happy mother’s day.  <3

Happy Mothers Day Minneapolis

April was a busy month … which seems to be the norm now days.  It was a month filled with the ordinary things: work, school, homework, laundry, taekwondo and the list goes on… but we made sure to take time and smell the roses  (or in this case, hydrangeas).  This month, I hope you don’t mind that I’m going to forego captions and let the pictures do the talkin’.

Side note: these hydrangeas are still alive and well in my vase.  They’ve survived more than three weeks – I change the water every few days…  add a cap full of bleach, and a teaspoon of sugar.  I read somewhere that the bleach prevents mildew growth and the sugar provides energy for the blooms.  I’m not sure if there’s any truth to it, but it seems to work.
