Wow! What a wonderful day!

Saturday was a wonderful day for me and my family. We celebrated my son’s 20th birthday. WOW! How quickly time flies, it seems like it was just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital.

It was late when we got home but I checked my email and was delighted to see that Misty S. from Krazy About Teaching had nominated my blog for a Liebster Award.
