Tormenting My Beautiful Baby Girl...

OK. I admit it. I've resorted to blatant bribery and psychological manipulation. But Katie started it! She's the one who said she might come home over Labor Day weekend!

HOW am I tormenting my beloved, youngest child, you may ask? By posting photographs of her favorite place to be:

My Back Yard

To be more exact ~ the SWING in my backyard.

This is where Katie likes to sit and read and relax when she's home.

Most evenings will find her sitting in the swing, reading a book and sipping a glass of wine. If it's cool out, she may wrap one of my shawls around her shoulders.

Katie's seldom alone ~ Mimi and Bella frequently join her on her nightly vigils. We all miss her.

Hurry Home Katie!

We'll keep your seat warm!

*For the Record...*
Katie, I'm pretty sure that you know that as much as we do all miss you, we certainly understand your desire to be with Carter if there's any way that can be arranged. I'm (secretly) hoping that you can work it out. Don't worry ~ it'll be beautiful in the FALL as well...

I love you


  1. I think that is beautiful blackmale :) I hope your daughter comes home to visit you very soon.

    Awww, what a wonderful mum you are, Nancy.
    That swing does look relaxing--love the little built-in table between the two cushions.

  3. You threw in Lily AND A CHICKEN!?!?! Good grief! I'm onto convincing Carter it's time to meet the family! (he was trying to plan a little vacation to key west or NYC or something :) ) Everything is STILL up in the air, but i'll keep you (all!) posted :)

  4. I don't know how she can resist that sort of blatant bribery. I don't know about her, but I think that there will have to be a time this fall when I plunk myself in that swing...

    (I love the glory-full photo of Katie in the swing - I suspect that's exactly how you see her!)

  5. HERE I COME!!!!! Finally :)

  6. It's about time! ;-)

    I forgot all about this post ~ I'm so glad that you commented on it today and brought it back to my attention. I hope it's warm enough that you can sit out on the swing this weekend...

    I do so love my BBG... Safe travels!
