Spring! and a Quote

Spring 2012

Even the trees are excited!!

I took this picture yesterday with my phone and played a little with my App, PicSay. The Forsythia are just beautiful and so vibrant!!! This is how visitors are greeted as they enter our driveway…well, minus the word bubble!


Seven years ago, a very dear friend of mine died very unexpectedly. It was a blow to us all and left her family heartbroken even though they knew she was in a much better place.

Not long after, her husband gave me a framed quote, I hung it in my kitchen so I could read it everyday.

When Kelley at Our Daily Bread designs opened up to the DT to choose for the anniversary stamps to include quotes and sentiments, this is the one that first came to mind… thank you Kell!

Thank YOU, Dawn! This is one of the most meaningful and beautiful ODBD releases I've seen with such wonderful Scripture and quotes - I guess I know what's going to be at the top of my birthday wish list!

The things you make are always so beautiful on so many levels. I'm so sorry you lost your friend, but I'm sure she was smiling down on you when you were making this. That is a beautiful quote & your card layout so soft & lovely. xo
