Sundays at Home No. 11 and Happy Mother's Day

Welcome to week eleven of Sundays at Home and Happy Mother's Day. I am starting this week's link party off on a somber note...

I am thankful that I have the opportunity to spend the day with my husband and two little ones. This week has been filled with lots of extra hugs, kisses and quality time, after learning of the tragic death of three year old Ryan, son of Jacqui from Baby Boy Bakery. I am heartbroken for his family and have been lifting them up in prayer constantly. I hope that you will pray also, especially for his mom on this day that I can only imagine will be unbearably painful, only one week after losing her precious little boy. Here are some pictures of their beautiful family and beloved Ryan.
Many people will be releasing red balloons in his honor this Mother's Day, and I hope to as well. Donations are also being raised for the family on Thrive Moms and GoFundMe if you would like to contribute.

Here is what I had to share last week...
I shared about our Life Out Here where we enjoy the pleasures of a simply country life.

I also shared some random Rustic Romantic Vignettes from the past few years.

And in honor of the NFL draft this week, I finally got around to posting my little man, Owen's First Birthday Party.

Over at Sweet as a Cookie, Karissa shared some delicious looking Garlic Parmesan Corn.
Make sure you stop by her blog to see what posts she has featured from last week's link up! 
We each feature our own favorites.

Here are my picks from last week's link up:
Lamberts Lately shared a great Mother's Day Gift Guide. It might help those of you who are last minute shoppers (like me!).

I was swooning over all of Natasha in Oz's pictures of her Trip to Paris! Sigh...

I love this Deconstructed Vintage Book Bundle which is available on Etsy from The Penny and the Pearl.

I am so happy for my friend Anne Lorys who was Published in Flea Market Decor!

And, I am sucker for free printables, especially ones that motivate me to get my house in order! Will be using this Spring Cleaning List from City of Creative Dreams.
