    Mother’s Day deliveries

    Our family decided to celebrate Mother’s Day Saturday…. So that on Sunday the moms could sleep in… or not drive 3 hours one way.. haha.

    Did you miss out today?? Here is the…..LINK Here is your reminder to check out the fun technique as we try to say good-bye to Lovely as a Tree. What?? You have not heard yet that it is retiring?? Did you hear on the video that my parents were here?? Yup, a visit for my birthday! It was funny to talk with my Dad after because he thought it was cool that we could “talk” via the video too. Weird, to have him standing beside me while talking with all of you! He was watching the comments pop up on the iPad.. Thanks Mom and Dad for being so supportive!…
