The past month and half a been a whirl wind!
I hardly know where to begin.
(if you leave, don't forget to come back)
I received my swap items from Cecilia!
all the way from Mexico.
Look how precious!
Nesting baskets and nesting bowls, look at the tiny painted pigs!
I love them! :)
And, how cool is this? A handmade table cloth in one of my favorite colors from Cecilia's own personal line. So sweet of her to make this for me. :)
Thank you so much, Cecilia! :)
I also heard from Jaana. :)
Jaana gave to Sonya. Aren't they just lovely? :)
I've hired a business and life coach to help me expand and/or take my business to the next level. It's a twelve week program where she works with me one on one. It's like taking a college course, lots of information and lots of reading and hopefully, learning a bit along the way. ;) I'm directly in the middle of it, as of today.
My middle daughter went to her senior prom. :)
Another reason it's been a whirl wind around here.....
... were the many awards ceremonies we attended along with Grace. She has received more awards, honors and recognition than anyone I know. She's been a straight A student, in the top of her class and has excelled at pretty much everything she has tried. The majority of her awards were for academics, art (she's a painter) and television production. In the fall, she will be attending Tyler School of Art, at Temple University in Phila. where she will be studying Visual Arts so she can paint and do tv production. Immensely proud of her. :)
My oldest did not come home for the summer as she has a research position at Penn State. Very proud of her for garnering that position. It will continue in the fall when school picks back up as well, that will be her third year at Penn State studying meteorology.
So, next year, we'll be down to the boy and he will be a senior and the year will breeze by I am sure!
On a sad note, my aunt passed away on Grace's prom day. She's on the left with my Mom Mom.
It's an old picture, but, I love it. She was a pretty lady and will be missed.
oh, there's more... it will have to wait until next time though! :)
