Florida Album

Just made a fun Florida album of Justin and Sarah's time here in Florida. I used discontinued papers, some of my favorite stamp sets, ooooh glitter! Thought I would share it before I mail it off to the wayward children. Enjoy!

Happy Father's Day!

I just had to share the card I made for my honey for father's day. The card is from our pets and he will just be amused by the whole thing.

All you need is a piece of B & T paper size 8 1/2 x 11. The rest is just a matter of folding. I used Boom-di-ada paper. Love it!

He is also an avid reader and he marks his page with a grocery store receipt. I think he'll love his bookmark. It's all about love and simple things.

Michigan here he comes!

As a parent we have our children's lives mapped out for them in our brains. We only want the best for our children and we have high hopes.

Well this week my hopes for my son came crashing down... he packed up and moved back to Michigan with his girlfriend. He is going to live his life his way.

So with waves and a tear I watched them go with safety primarily on my mind. They made it back safe and sound and now they are going to carve out their lives their way in the Midwest.

Where does all the time go?

Where does all the time go? One minute they're little 4 year old kids.... cute, curly haired, tanned and with not a care in the world. Then you turn around and they're 19! My Justin just celebrated his 19th birthday this week and I keep wondering where has all the time gone? Life for Justin and I has been quite eventful. Where people we loved have come and gone... but we are survivors! I hope that as he ages and matures the good parts of growing up and the values I have tried to instill will live on. My wish is that my legacy lives on with the child I love so dearly.
