A Sweet Surprise!


This morning, I went downstairs to see what was for breakfast. On the table, there was a special note just for me! 


I was so surprised! It was from my Dad, who loves surprises, especially surprising us! But what could be inside that napkin? 




 Yay!! It was a yummy croissant from my favorite French bakery!
 Mmm, sweet surprises are the best of all.


The croissant looked big, so I cut it in half. Hooray, more for later! 
But then I stopped. 
I looked at my pastry, then I remembered someone who loved croissants as much as I did. 



So I called her over...

And we had a delightful snack. 


Sisters are the sweetest treats of all, don't you think? 


Of course, croissants come soon after. 

Have a wonderful Halloween, and don't forget who your "sweetest treats" really are! 

Love, 
Carla

A Walk to the Flower Garden



Today I took a walk through my flower garden. Right now, my zinnias, marigolds, and larkspur are in bloom. 


Isn't that pink zinnia just gorgeous?

A New Dress


As the long, sunny days are drifting away, I got a new dress that has a bit of summer left in its pretty ruffles. My Mimi made this sundress for me, and I love it!  The ruffles are so me. 




Thank you, Mimi, for the beautiful dress! 

Love,
Carla

I love Autumn!



Autumn is here! I love the twirl of leaves, the crisp apples, the cooler weather- and the cinnamon muffins! It's a new change, a new season. We can always begin the new month with a clean slate. Besides, my birthday is in Autumn! 


 I love yellow flowers, don't you? 



Pretty flowers + pretty dress = happy Carla. 

Spread the love, 
Carla
