A Because Party

Today's weather is nothing short of perfect. Long sleeves? OK. Short sleeves? OK too!
Little Miss Hannah decided it was the perfect day for an outside "Because Party." You can read about "Because Parties" in the Little Bear books and movies...but basically, it's a party for...Just because!

And, yes, professional photograpers: My rickety, backyard garage door IS available for use as a back drop. Just ask, and be my guest. Just stay an hour after and watch my kids while I go grocery shopping, OK?
The hostess made a fruit salad - apples, bananas, oranges, orange juice, and cinnamon . I helped slice a little. A side of pumpenickel pretzels was served. Like the fancy serving dishes? A Because Party is a relaxed, fuss-free event.
Brothers may come too. But be prepared for their shenanigans, like sneaking the pretzels, and blowing dandelions onto the fruit salad. The hostess did her best to be gracious.
This is me after the hostess decided the Because Party was in my honor. I got to wear this beautiful, rare, exotic bloom in my hair. And get my picture taken. Just because.

Happy Friday!
