So how did she come to be called 'The Princess'? It's not just a name for this blog. No, the title was bestowed upon her at birth.
My dad was the father of three daughters. His first two grandsons made their arrival before I was born. Another grandson born in that same year and a fourth a number years later. All of that finally changed with the birth of our girl. And when they met for the first time, he looked at his first and only granddaughter and said, 'Well, there's The Princess.' And the name has been with her ever since.
Happy Birthday, Princess! Long may you reign.

Aren't granddads the absolute greatest? May you and the Princess enjoy a wonderful day (and her Dad, too!).

I am glad you are back from Spring Break, Miss A Simple Girl. I enjoyed your story about how The Princess got her name.
Now that your house is sparkly clean, the outdoor work caught up on some, and whatever else you did, I hope you get lots of sewing projects done. It will make new decor for your waiting home.

Hi Libbym good to see you again. I'll bet you really enjoyed that time in the yard and under the hexs *VBS*
A break from things is good for the soul.
The little minis look great, both on the line and in the bucket! IT if fun to change them up like that.
Can't wait to see what the garden produces this year. I love seeing what your creativity produces. Big hugs and a very happy Easter. Hugs, Finn
