Just a Glimpse

WOW! It's been a while! When I say we have not been home that is no exaggeration! We are making the most of our Summer. Last weekend I went on a retreat with my girlfriends. I mentioned that we were staying in a cabin at a state park. It was a really relaxing and funny weekend. One night we got a little stir crazy and went to a movie. Mostly, we just scrapped, laughed, and enjoyed being with each other. It's not often this bunch gets together without teaching classes, running a scrap store, or a convention. I love these girls!
Sunday I drove back from the camp to repack and an hour later jump back in the car with my kids and my friend and head to Georgia. Nine hours or so later we arrived at my friends new home. Her family accepted a position as minister of youth at a church on the coast. Their new church family moved them, unpacked them, and stocked their fridge and pantry. What a blessing. I believe they have moved to a loving community that will appreciate them. After we settled them in, we did a little vacationing (pictures later). We spent time on the islands, shopping, eating seafood, playing at the beach, and just enjoying the scenery and being together. We took a couple of days to go to Savannah where we enjoyed museums, carriage rides, music in the city square, walks along the river, and the best seafood I have ever had. Needless to say, we had a great time and I will post more on that later. We returned home on Sunday and I had to immediately start getting ready for my supper club which was being held at MY house. TONS of clothes to wash and some major dusting and straightening to do. That was last night and it was a great time. It took us three and a half hours to catch up on all the latest. They were also cluing me in on my new job (more on that later).
This weekend I am headed out to teach at an event in South Louisiana. I am tired but I get to be with my girlfriends so it will be a blast. My girls are going to spend several days with their grandparents and cousins in Jackson and are very much looking forward to that. Next weekend some of the girls are coming up from LA to hang out with me at my house and let the kids play. We are gonna work on my new scrap room! And then another event, then real life begins..... We are having so much fun this Summer and we don't want it to end, but that's not reality. I will get a little more detailed later ,but just wanted to fill you in on the latest and catch up.
I leave you with just one more example of how life is moving so quickly. My baby just lost her third tooth. It is one of the big front ones and is one of the ones that really marks the fact that she is growing up. She goes to Kindergarten this year and I am just sick over it. At least I will be with them.
Alright! I am off to get everybody ready and grab a bite to eat. For those of you taking my class this weekend, I will post the project shortly. Any size pic 5x7 or smaller will work. I changed the project up a bit due to materials not being available, but basically the same idea. See y'all soon!


  1. if a picture is worth a thousand words, I'd be willing to bet a lot of those couldn't be printed here from the first pic. Love you!

  2. you need to be hurt badly for posting this disgusting picture. And no, I am not referring to the precious baby picture!!!
