If you are visiting for coffee for the 1st time - welcome. If you are returning for our weekly morning coffee - welcome back!
I certainly hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was a sunny weekend here, but still cold.
Dream Boy & I went to the local "Art Hop" on Friday night - it's held the 1st Friday of every month in our downtown. Local artisans set up their work in various businesses & anyone/everyone is encouraged to "shop" around! It is so much fun - we saw many photography displays that really motivated me to print my work & frame it. We saw some very unique pottery and heard an awesome Chamber Art Quartet. There were street musicians & jewelry makers. But the one artisan that stood out the most to me was the daughter of a woman who passed away last fall. Her mother did cross stitch - not normally your "fine art" type of display, but her work was amazing! She did Monet stitchery, Picasso & some of her own designs. They were so intricate - it's was just beautiful. I was touched by how proud her daughter was & how they felt this was one of the greatest ways to preserve their mother's memory & honor her.
My kids' were home Sunday night for dinner. I made a Pioneer Woman dinner - using the recipes she made on her Saturday morning show. It was quite tasty! We spent time at the dinner table reminiscing about so many things & talking about wedding plans. Then the boys started watching soccer on t.v., so d2b (daughter to be) & I spent time on line looking & pinning ideas for wedding flowers. (note to Aunt Pam to check some of those new pins out) We also talked about ideas for centerpieces and place card ideas too. It's coming so quickly now - only 6 months to go!
What did you do this weekend? Did you spend time with family, doing some things you love to do, enjoying the weather in your neck of the woods?
This week is going to be a strange schedule for me as the junior's in our high school will be doing their ACT testing all day Tuesday & then more testing Wednesday & Thursday mornings. So that means all Freshman, sophomores & seniors can't be in school during those times - which then means I won't be in either. So I get a few days of playtime, which I really don't mind.
I'm having dinner with my dearest friend on Tuesday night & then meeting another friend after school on Wednesday afternoon for coffee.
Dream Boy & I are also checking into flights for me. You see, Son #2 has been offered a tremendous opportunity, a promotion, at work. This promotion includes a big move ----- to the other side of the country, literally. We are SO proud of him & so excited for him, but yet this mama's heart is also struggling with the 2300 miles that will be between us. He is going out over spring break to meet his new boss & to start scoping things out. I may be joining him to help him look.
So my heart is filled with joy & pride & excitement for both of my boys'. Both of them are making major changes in their lives this year.
We are truly blessed ad thank God for the sons' that he has given to us.
I hope you had a great weekend and that your week will bring much joy & happiness to your hearts!
Come back soon!
