Being a grownup means rousing oneself from a wonderful Sunday afternoon nap to get ready.
Being a grownup means not snoozing an additional 10 or 15 minutes while hubby starts preparing for guests.
Being a grownup means pitcing in to make the house “presentable”.
Being a grownup means saying “thank you” without being reminded by your mother.
My husband and I have had reason upon reason to express our gratitude. We have been moving through some horrendous circumstances, and we have been surrounded and supported by so many amazing people. This is the first of many. To all of you out there — We thank you with a grateful heart.

Some friends of ours left for Hawaii today to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of their parents/in-laws. 60 years! Can you imagine? What a great model of love, respect, and commitment. In honor of such a wondrous event my husband and I thought it would be nice to send a card. I, of course, started it the night before, and therefore chose to keep it simple.
Being the lover of blossoms and all things blooms, and being that the couple live in Hawaii, it seemed only appropriate to use some bright colors and highlight some beautiful flowers. Out of the desire for a CAS (clean and simple) card, bright colors, and flowers came a sweet card celebrating what this couple has learned to do very well — grow love.
Happy Anniversary! To many more celebrations of your marriage.

New month, new calendar pages — fresh start — I love it! Not to mention the fabulous 75° sunny and breezy weather that we have been experiencing in Southern California. And what better way to celebrate all this new, new, new than by ringing in a BIRTHDAY! That’s right — today’s my dear sister-in-law begins another new year – Happy Birthday!
So in her honor I got to play with a new Unity stamp in my collection and make this cute little card (with input and guidance from my hubby, of course — truly it becomes a gift from both of us). And contrary to my recent bad behavior — I not only made the card, but also actually sent it in the mail (just don’t tell her – ‘cuz I only sent it yesterday)! Happy Birthday, Dear One.
