You are never too old...

Well, maybe you are but you will never admit it! After living in the same home for 33 years, it is time for a change and for me a big one. Over the past year there have been so many changes in our lives, both good and bad, that it is hard to even think straight. There have been some bumps and sad days along the way, but for the most part they are good changes and we are looking forward to starting another chapter in life. In just a little over a week things will transfer from one home to another and the holiday weekend is going to be a very busy one for all of us. Green Acres opened a month ago and we haven't even thought about getting out there yet! I think it is going to be another summer to blink and ask where the time has gone. In May we have already celebrated 2 weddings and little Braelynn's birthday. She is the sweetest little thing. Well, she is a little ornery, but we like her that way.

And check out the number 1 big brother! He sure was the life of his Ma's wedding! 

We were blessed that dad felt up to all the celebrating, and if he didn't he was a good sport and didn't complain too much about any of the fuss.

If that isn't enough to smile about, the garden is starting to show signs of life and I can almost taste all the things that I've been craving all winter long.

Be sure to stop by the forum at Ivy Scraps and check out the challenges this month!!  Hugs to you all.

Come Celebrate NSD and Each Day with Gloria!

Gloria and I have been friends through digital scrapbooking for several years.  Many of you will know her from Moo Two and Ivy Scraps.  For those who do know her, they will know how giving and how special she is.  If you don't know her, then you are missing out on a very special friendship!  Gloria and I now work together at Ivy Scraps and over the past months and years, she has created many lovely gifts for you that go into the newsletter or into the forum.  Once a month or bi-monthly she creates a kit in honor of one of our design, CT or membership family.  We are not talking Mini kits here.  We all know that Gloria is from Texas and they do everything BIG there!  Her kits are no exception and into each one goes a lot of thought about the person she is shining the spotlight on that month.  Gloria's heart is as big as the state of Texas and the design team at Ivy Scraps decided it was time to give some of that love right back to her.  She loves her family, especially those grandchildren!!  She loves to take road trips, to design, to read, helping others and giving to those who need her.  I'll be some of you know she LOVES to bake cupcakes.  Once at Ivy Scraps her avatar was the cupcake lady!!  

So, Gloria, in honor of all that you love and all that you do and in return for all of the love that pours from your heart to the Ivy Scraps family, we hope you will be able to use this kit as you celebrate the special days and special things in your life.  Thank you for being such an awesome friend and inspiration to us all!

To the rest of you, follow the blog train and pick up the pieces of the kit Celebrate Each Day with Gloria!
