Time flies ....


Hello Paper Crafters!  How are you all doing??   It's been very busy the last couple of weeks and I can't believe how time has flown by since my last post.  Lots of great things that I'm so very thankful for have been keeping me very busy ...  increased work hours, my daughters visit for 10 days, getting together with a new crafty friend, and  ....  shoving my 23 year old baby bird out of the nest!!  Yep it's official, he has his own apartment.  We are all excited.  My in-laws drove all the way from Georgia to help move him and get him settled in.  What a blessing they are and we are so excited to share this special time with them!  And of course they have spoiled him with a few house warming gifts.  So, it's been a long day of lifting furnature and boxes and with this heat, I'm ready for bed.  But I wanted to get a quick post up first.  Hope you like it!
very tired hugs,
Melisa

Oh your an empty nester ,how perfect your card is for this happy/sad time.
never would have thought you had a 23 year old. I figured you for about that age! Really I did.
