Journey Home

Sunday, July 25, 2010


Whew! Home. Tired and in my jammies and it is only 7:00. Just spent a wonderful weekend with 2 of my very favorite people in the world. My daughter Sara and daughter-in-law Missy. Our ultimate destination was Columbus, Ohio to visit the Lottie Da shop. Missy was making the the final selections for fabrics for custom bedding for Maryn's room. OMG! They are unbelieveably sweet. I cannot wait to share some pictures. Amy Routh, who is the owner of Lottie Da's is amazing! Her shop is birth through age 6 and everything has a vintage/retro feel to it. I have posted several pictures, but they really do not do it justice. It is such a fun shop.
Our weekend actually began on Thursday when we met for pedicures and dinner. Followed by a pj party at Sara's. We left early on Friday returning home Saturday evening. We crammed alot in to our trip. I love spending time with these two! They are so much fun. I am just so thankful to have family that are also friends.
Our destination! Eye candy everywhere you look in this place!!

My mother celebrated her 85th birthday on Friday, July 23rd. My brother Terry and his family came down from Michigan and we all gathered for a party on Sunday. Mother is adjusting so well to her new home. We brought in pizza and cake and celebrated her special day. I think there were 20 of us. I love my family!!! We had such a good time.

Happy 85th Mom

Son Tyler and beautiful wife Missy.....and of Maryn.

My daughter Sara, Sharon, Shelby and me.

Proud grandma with her beautiful grandkids!

How cute is this guy? Our son, Tyler

Brother Terry and his wife Sharon. I am so blessed to have such a great sister-in-law!

3 generations. My baby brother Terry and his handsome son, Aaron with Mom.

My handsome son Jason. I am so proud of this guy. He works as an activities director at the facility that my mother has moved in to. What a gift he has working with elderly people. It touches me to watch him as he interacts with patients....the way they react to him. He loves what he does...and I know so many appreciate the things he does for their loved ones. And, mom is over the top with pride because she is there with her grandson! He begins his day by visiting her room. She loves it! I know this has made the transition for her so much easier...for all of us. THANK YOU, Jason...for all that you do

Also wanted to share a necklace that I did for a special friend. She invited me to go through some storage sheds are her property. OMG! I felt like I was the t.v. show "Pickers". It was so much fun....crawling over, digging through...finding amazing things! It is kinda hard to read, but the heart has her children's names. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for an amazing afternoon!!
