Cute Cottages At The Beach

We recently returned from our annual vacation with my hubby's family. We go to a cute little beach town in the state of Delaware. I'm not sure how many years they have been going there, but I have been a part of it for 25 years.

I love taking walks while we are there and admiring all of the charming homes. The climate with its warm and moist air is perfect for flowers and greenery. You see a lot of beautiful hydrangeas and some of them are huge.

Isn't this pink screened door pretty? Many of the houses have screened porches and a lot of them are on the front of the house - love that!

Our Son's Graduation

Hi Everyone,
Our son graduated from high school at the end of May. We had a big family party after the ceremony and many of our relatives from out of town came so it was a wonderful day.
It was such a crazy busy time that I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of the decorations for his party but I thought I would show you the announcement that I designed using Picmonkey. I really love doing things like that and I could easily spend hours playing around with it. I used Overnight Prints to have them printed and I was very happy with how they turned out. It was very inexpensive as well. I can't help but brag a little bit and show you some of his graduation pictures. He can be kind of a serious kid but his whole face lights up when he smiles ~ which makes my heart melt.

Here is a picture of us along with my 94 year old father-in-law. My father-in-law is someone I greatly admire.   He is such a good person - so kind, moral, loving and humble. I am grateful that he has been so…
