Happy Retirement Mom!! A Lilac Cupcake.

HAPPY RETIREMENT MOM!!

My mom is one of the most hard working people I have ever known.

She has always gone without for the sake of her family.

This week she retired and will be enjoying the SWEET LIFE!





I made this in honor of my mom. My favorite flower for my favorite person.

It turned out beautiful, just like her.

I am excited for you, Mom....now...when are you going to drive your new fancy retirement car up here for a looooooong visit?


Next week?????? GREAT!

Best wishes to your mom. I hope she visits you often. These are beautiful cupcakes. (I love lilacs.)

In response to your comment on my blog: You don't have to come up with a super old recipe. It could in fact be a recipe from your mom, or an aunt, etc. It could be something they continue to make to this day, or something they made when you were a child. :-)

That has to be one of the prettiest cupcakes I have ever seen! It's a work of art...but I could still eat it in a heartbeat! ;-)

Thanks for visiting my blog and the sweet compliment on my daughters room.

So pretty, Trish! You are so very creative and Congrats to your Mom!

Thank you for stopping by this morning. I was wondering how you 'back up' your blog. Do you mean put it into your favorites? I'm afraid I'm not very good around computers!

Blessings,

Congratulations to your sweet Momma on her retirement. What a wonderful milestone for her. Now she can enjoy life a little more. Slow down and take time to smell the roses. Her car is SO beautiful. Good for her.

Have a beautiful weekend sweet friend. Thank you for sharing today. Love the cupcake, and lilacs are one of my favorite as well.
Many country hugs, Sherry

Best wishes to your mom. It is not easy to retire if you have worked a long time. My first year was the hardest. Now, I would never go back.
