Yesterday was my birthday and our 36th anniversary. Thirty-six years with the same man. Thirty-six years spending my days with the same man. Thirty-six years looking at the same man. Thirty-six years cooking for the same man. Thirty-six years doing laundry for the same man. Thirty six years laughing with the same man. Thirty-six years going through all the ups and downs of life with the same man. Thirty six years of being a very lucky girl!
Of all my birthday wishes yesterday, and I loved each and every one of them, this was my favorite…..hands down.

I am ready for Spring. In Florida, we have a very tiny window of opportunity where we can open our windows and celebrate the glorious weather before the heat and humidity settle in. We call it….spring. If you blink, you miss it. But however many days we have, 4 days or 4 weeks, I love it. Windows open, flowers starting to bloom, grass turning green, and a cup of tea on the porch, these are a few of my favorite things! I wanted to get the house ‘spring ready’ without over doing like I normally do. My motto is “Bigger is better” but then that mess has to be put back in the box. The more I set out, the more I have to put back in the boxes. So I knew I needed a new motto, “Keep it simple, Jody, keep it simple.” There has been a lot going on in Sheaffer home the last couple of months and I needed to stick to my new motto.
I love tiered trays, no secret there. Like I have stated before, I just keep cramming things in until I get it looking the way I like, or until I smile.

Easter is coming so early this year. I always perk up when I set some spring decorations out and believe me, I need perking up! I have a three-tiered tray that I purchased from Sam’s a while back. I LOVE it! I keep it out all year long and decorate it with each season. I love how it turned out this year. I just kept cramming flowers and birds into it until it looked the way I wanted. I used colored glass jars from Michael’s and Target for flower containers. The fuller it became, the better I liked it!
