Growing Up

In 34 days my oldest son, Corbin, will graduate from high school. It seems like it was yesterday that he was running around in diapers and playing with Batman figurines! My son has grown up quite well and I couldn't be more proud of him!! He has done so well through school and in his young personal life so it only makes sense that his graduation gift be something special....something that HE wants. Well, since we couldn't quite hide it from him, he received his graduation gift and is VERY happy.

What? You want to know what it is? LOL! Corbin is now the proud owner of a Buick Park Avenue! He really wanted a new car, especially since he will be starting college soon, so how could I not fulfill his wish? He has been such a wonderful son and I know that will never change. Plus, I feel better now that he is in a larger car ;-) I have have several people ask me if he as "decked" it out or "pimped" his, he has not. He loves the car just the way it is. One more thing about Corbin that makes him so special...he has always had this "grown up" sense about him. He is a very special child and I am a privileged mother to be able to say, "This is my son."

So here he is..smiling over his "new ride"...

A Lovely Experience Never To Be Forgotten

What is time? An instance. An indefinite period. An action in a certain period of time

Sadly, my time has been quite scarce and so many important levels of my life have been neglected. With this said, I have made a decision to close one of my Etsy shops; Any Occasion Boutique officially closed this morning. It was a difficult decision to make, but an important one. However, I will continue to carry on with my Laura Lee's Tasty Treats plus will have more time to blog!

Another definition of time is- 'A moment considered as a resource under your control and sufficient to accomplish something'. I did just that with my Any Occasion Boutique and, now, with my Laura Lee's Tasty Treats. I have accomplished what I set out to do, put smiles on the faces of those receiving my cards. Now it is time for me to refocus on my family, friends and Laura Lee's Tasty Treats so that I may, once again, accomplish goals for which I have chosen.

Thank you to all my friends and family for your support and I look forward to many more days and years of sharing experiences.
