winner of birthday blog hop!

Thanks to everyone that hopped with us for Kimberly’s Birthday!


Shelly, I’ve messaged you!


So yesterday was {inter}National Scrapbook Day…did you play along in challenges, do some shopping or craft up a storm?  I had some crafty girls over and we made some gorgeous cards compliments of the birthday girl, Kimberly (those will be coming to my blog soon}.  In true Kimberly form, she gave me some goodies and this awesome card:


PERFECT for me…I love it Kimberly!

It’s been really lovely here in the Pacific Northwest…last night the boy & I went for a walk on a local trail.  I’m lucky to live in a community where that has several trails and parks.

If you’ve been following me for a while….you know that my boy is a high school senior.  We recently paid his college tuition deposit…yes, he’s made his decision.  With 5 amazing choices, he’s decided to go to school in New York City/Manhattan.  I’m super excited for him and know that it’s a perfect fit.  I’m going to miss him horribly, I miss my girl and she’s in the same state!   I’m super grateful for my kids…they make me laugh, they are self motivated and are just plain awesome♡

  4. Congratulations on our son, Amy. I am not looking forward to Charlotte going away and am glad that it is three years before I have to worry about it. NYC is a great place to go to school too.

It's a blessing to see your kids grow and blossom, but it's bittersweet, too. I wish I could make them stay little forever! 🙂
