"Celebrate"


My daughter Angela came home for the weekend. It was her 22nd birthday and I spent the entire weekend spoiling her with love and shopping.

The best part for me was watching her open the Card/Book that I made for her of pictures throughout her childhood of just her and I stuck together like glue. I wrote something special next to each picture and she Boo Hoo cried while reading it. My favorite part was not the crying, but the fact that our relationship was shown through pictures and written in words that really meant a lot to her.

Here is the last page of the book. This picture was taken for her Senior year Mother Daughter Tea at Kappa Alpha Theta House. This annual event gave us many priceless memories to treasure.

I am recovering from our lovefest weekend. I need a day to rest rest rest :) My brain has absolutely no inspiration for the moment. Tomorrow will bring renewed brain cells and hopefully some creativity. Hope you all had a terrific weekend. I'll enjoy reading your posts and laying around on the couch today.

Smooches and hugs = SMUGS :)

I LOVE YOU Dar.
You and Angela are just so special...
And a scrapping Goddess too.. wowsers. I love scrapping, putting our photos with our stories. Bits of ourselves and our lives.
Angela will cherish that book and the memories for always... almost as much as she so obviously adores you.
And I hope that is how things shall be with Mikaela and I in years to come.

What a perfect scenario... to be friends with your Mum. Good, true and soulful friends.

You are such a beautiful person Dar... to be your child would be like heaven on earth. Total blessing.
