A Summer Saga!

I haven’t posted since February? Life happens. (OK, technology and social media happened too.)

Wow!  It’s been a crazy, fun, busy summer for us so far.  Myself and my family have so many exciting things going on - a summer to be remembered for certain!

My brother and I are planning a 60th Anniversary celebration for our folks - an open house that will be great fun!  We are looking forward to sharing that day with as many people as possible who have known our parents throughout the years.  They have set an example of love and commitment for sure. What a wonderful anniversary to celebrate.  

Our two daughters announced this spring that they are both expecting.  Grandma status in October! BOTH OF THEM 😳 Their due dates are only 12 days apart, so it was a shock to say the least! It has been a fun few months so far hearing about the baby growth, tests, predictions, and eventually the gender reveals.  Turns out we will have one grandson and one granddaughter. The shopping has been fun, I’m telling ya - those adorable baby clothes for both genders! And now we are getting to planning those baby showers. I can’t wait to meet these little people.

How many people get to celebrate these milestones both with their parents and their kids within just a few months?  Lucky us! 

We also had a few graduations and other new babies in our lives, so I got to making my commemorative pennies. It took until about May to get some 2019 pennies, but now I have a bit of a stash. Here are a few gifted already:


And today I received a special gift from a young High School gal.  I work with her mom, who had told me that she was a creative seamstress, and was interested in design and quilting.  I gave her some fabric that I was looking to donate somewhere, and she was thrilled!  This was on my chair in my office this morning:

How darn cute is that?!  I love it!  She used fabric that I’d given her to make this thank you gift.  What a treat!  It looks great in my living room.  What a talented, sweet young lady!
