Only 8 more to go..Naomi is out getting more supplies. Too late in the game, I finally learned how to tie the ribbon decently (not on this one)
The purple above is what I thought Naomi would want but it clashed with the photo. The only photos it would have worked with are the ones with them sitting among greenery but none of those pix were good. Even though Shanna and I both received As in French, we both made a mistake in our respective invitations spelling RSVP but the font (not my first choice!!!) is so stylized, it is not obvious. The vellum lifts up to reveal the picture.

For the past few days, Naomi has had a short term assignment taking her away for an hour or so in the morning. I have Maya. I had gotten up early to get the now much cheaper flowers at the Farmer's Market but I tried to plant them and watch Maya at the same time. For a while, she was content to just sit on the blanket near me watching the world go by but then she got antsy. Eventually a neighbor came over with the little boy she was watching  who was just a few months older than Maya so they enjoyed each other. I bought more cosmos to replace those that became bunny food and placed these such that the bunnies need to navigate some obstacles to get them.

Then came hours of putting together the invites and we are still short!

Fortunately it is cool enough to run in the middle of the day. I ran into a co-worker who brought me up to speed where many of our other co-workers are now....

The days of working in the same place for years and years are definitely over.

This is so pretty Sue. There are such beautiful supplies available these days making Invitations, Thank You Notes etc so professional looking.
Maya must love being with you. I will have to go back to have a read to see how old she is now.
I love Cosmos in the garden. Tried to get chocolate ones last year but was unsuccessful.

I spelled RSVP, RVSP. My daughter did the same on her invitations to her sons' baptisms. You spelled out the words correctly.
