Pretty Peonies and Lovely Lilacs

The spring after Maddie was born I planted peonies.  
They are one of my favorite flowers.  
I didn't realize they took so long to bloom, so when I noticed the pink petals blooming last week for the first time I was soo excited!!
Aren't they so pretty!? 

Several years ago I got a cutting of lilac bush from my sister and planted it. 
It's doing amazing, so a couple of weeks ago I thought Maddie and I could make an arrangement together. 

And this is what we got to enjoy for a week or so...

We used these amazing frog lids for mason jars...so ingenious!!

You can find them here

I know I'm not the best housekeeper, and I'm still a little too comfortable with clutter, but it's so nice to bring in something beautiful to make a house feel like home!
