Where flowers bloom so does hope.– Lady Bird Johnson

Each May, you can find Memorial Day flowers on every corner. It's a floral explosion. Many around here call Memorial Day, Decoration Day. It never really meant anything to me before, other than the start of summer vacation and lake season. Oh, how things change, right?

I decided to bypass next week's crowds and decorate today. I found the perfect little saddle for Josey by sheer chance. I had bought flowers a couple of weeks ago. They've been sitting in my car the entire time. I just wasn't very happy with them. Now, I know why. I hadn't found the perfect ones yet.

However, this one is perfect.

Not only is it the perfect size and color, it also has butterflies!

Happy Decoration Day to all my BLMs. Prayers for a beautiful, peace-filled day.


  1. Beautiful flowers for a beautiful baby girl! <3

  2. Josey's flowers are beautiful.

  3. Hi, here from ICLW. Josey's flowers are beautiful! I hope you had a very peaceful weekend as well :)

  4. Stopping by from ICLW...Those flowers are beautiful!

    I think that I used to follow your blog before, when I was blogging over at the (In)fertility Diaries. Hope you are doing well!

  5. I love the butterflies on the ribbon, so very playful. A wonderful choice. -ICLW

  6. Hi there,

    I was googling something about Carly Marie and found your blog. Love your beautiful layout!!

    I love your sweet Josey's headstone and flowers. I am hoping to get a headstone at some point soon for my daughter, Lily Katherine, who was stillborn at fullterm in March 2010. She is buried in another state from me, but I am planning on visiting this summer and already thinking about what I want to take to her spot!

    I'd love to have you follow along on my blog as well.

    Much love and hugs,
