I AM BACK!!! I returned last week from the Society of Decorative Painters Show which I cannot wait to share!  What an amazing week and I was excited to return home for this special event in my son’s life……Senior Prom


him and his date looked so great……

what a great group of kids and loved seeing him with his friends..



I just love this photo of his close friends and us moms (who are also friends!)….


But my personal favorites are these….so happy he wanted me to be there with my pain-in-the-rear camera!  After all those years of photos he wanted me there!

Prom8I am very proud of him and am happy that they had a safe prom.  Now we are on the fast track toward graduation.  I am not sure I am ready for it! (oh wait….yes I am!).  It is time for the next stage of his life that is ahead of him. ♥  Time to embrace that…..

Nobody gets through life without challenges and disruptions… just as nobody gets through life without losing someone they love, something they need, or something they thought was meant to be.  But it is these trials that make us stronger and eventually move us toward future opportunities.  Embrace these opportunities.  Enter new relationships and new situations, knowing that you are venturing into unfamiliar territory.  Be ready to learn, be ready for a challenge, and be ready to experience something or meet someone that just might change your life forever.”
