So This Happened

Much joy has been spread around my world of late--  I feel really blessed to be part of our great, big, amazing family.

We had not one for FOUR graduations... My oldest nephew earned his Master's Degree from Clemson, my youngest nephew graduated from high school, my niece earned her Bachelor's Degree from Ohio State and we officially have our first Doctor in the family, also from OSU!

These two pretties participated in graduation at 
The Ohio State University.

This "Roll With It" Quilt was a graduation gift 
for the Bachelor's Degree niece.


A couple of very sweet and very tiny kittens--
Olive and Scout, joined Godson's family.  

And these two cuties-- my great-nieces
celebrated their 4th and 5th birthdays together!

And today I'm remembering my dad who passed away nearly 22 years ago.  And I'm remembering my step-dad who passed 3 1/2 years ago.  Both great men who live on in our hearts always.

My dad with our new Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

How's your Sunday?

  1. Definitely the season, everyone graduating and starting out their new lives. Time just never stops. This year my nephew graduated as an electrical worker. Not sure what he'll be doing, but I'm sure it will be shocking. Ha.

    Glad you're doing well.
    And the quilt is beautiful, I want to be related to you so I can place an order!!

  11. Oh how I'd love to have a big family, but once my Aunts pass and my hubby passes, it will just be me and my animals. Sad. I think it's so awesome that you go back and join in on the graduations, and weddings, etc. I bet everyone loves seeing you and misses you a lot. Hugs!!

  18. I love that you added the kitties, I love that you added in your step father (this from a still struggling step-mother), and I love that you have a new Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (for the same reason as #1, I love animals). Congratulations!
