Another Beautiful Day

Today I am so grateful to be able to take my kids to school.
I dropped them off this morning, pulled away and realized just how lucky I am
to be able to do that.

we laugh. we sing. we talk. pray. 
we remember to be kind. thoughtful. respectful. 

Its a beautiful day, sure to be a great weekend and I am grateful.


There's lots going on. 
I am more than 1/2 way finished with my Japan order. 
Here are a few pictures. 

just one of the styles that was ordered

there sure is a lot


and this is new

it is double stranded
one is an open link chain
and the other is crystal wire wrapped chain

it will be added here today

Have a wonderful Weekend.

Proud Mama

We had a violin performance to attend.
It was beautiful.
The younger kids were great. 
The middle school kids were awesome.
The high school, they were fantastic.
And this kid, 

She was awesome. 
I cried. Of course I did. 
I didn't bawl but I had tears for sure. 
I was so proud.

(coloring, lighting, is a little off, we were in a gym)

Proud family

Good Job!
You're the BeSt!!!!

Let the Celebrations Begin

Its Birthday season around here!
And this year, we'll it for sure is a celebration.
Either we are going to embrace it, or simply hate it.
I choose to embrace it.

The three of us have been friends for many years. 
Thats me on the left. 
The middle is the Birthday Girl.
And on the right, she's been my friend since kindergarten.
The three of us are different in so many wonderful ways.
We are truly friends of the heart. 
We love each other. 
We love each others families.
We are there for each other, no matter what. 
Its such a blessing to have these girls in my life. 

We celebrated together another year. 
Had a wonderful night. 
With friends, hubbies and families. 
Good Times for sure!

We've always been there for each other.
It just means the world to me.

its friday
the weekends here 
 and i'm happy
 the family is home
and i love it

i got so much done today
worked some more

i went to an estate sale today
for me, its a little sad to know someone has passed,
knowing their family is missing them
but today, i was inspired 
the linens in the cupboards were IRONED
the napkins and dishcloths were STARCHED & IRONED
everything was so lovely
how wonderful it must have been to live 
back when things were slower
which inspired me 
not to slow down, cuz i just don't think i could
but to put a little extra on the little things
i'll show you what i mean in a later post
definitely inspired
love being inpired

created this today for a customer
she is so grateful for the Moms that have helped with a huge event
i love the way they turned out
i can't wait for them to receive them

enjoyed these
mmm, they smell lovely

three lucky little flower girls will be getting these

can't wait to show you my goodies i got 
so fun

have a wonderful weekend.

Summer Time, I can't wait

oh how i love summer
am i enjoying the weather right now
 the rain is good
we don't get a lot of it
and i don't mind it

the sun shinning
the outdoors
the golden skin tones
the flip flop tans
short and tanks
the water
the walks
the bike rides
the beach
oh, bring it on
i can't wait

i created this necklace this morning
and for some reason it reminds me of summer
and that makes me happy
so lets give one away
