Abby & Justin {Graduation}

Yay Class of 2013!!! I’m a few weeks late in posting a congratulations note, but better late than never!

You guys have worked sooooo hard! Welcome to the world!

A few things to remember:

~ Work harder than everyone else. Hard work really does pay off and nothing worth having comes free.

~ Never stop learning. Read a book, attend a lecture. Knowledge is power.

~ Be kind. The world can be a pretty rough place. Be THAT person. The one with the kind smile, grateful heart and open mind.

~ Hug your parents. They love you more than anything else and will be your loudest cheering section, your sympathetic shoulder to cry on and your biggest fan. They won’t be around forever, so make those moments happen as often as you can.

~ You can do anything you put your mind to! Just forget the voices that are telling you that it’s never going to happen. When someone says it’s impossible, cross your arms, nod your head and say ‘Challenge accepted.’ Then go make it happen!

You guys are awesome and I’ve loved spending time with you all!

Here are some photos from Justin and Abby’s Graduation Bash last weekend! And a video. Can’t forget the video!

My bees are back in town

I know it’s been AGES since my last blog post and I’m super sorry! Life here gets busy sometimes. *shrug*

I was out working around the pool this morning when I noticed that the lavender was buzzing.


I adore bees! It freaks my kids out because I’ll get right up close to them. I’m of the mind that if I don’t bother them then they won’t bother me. Also, I’m not allergic to stings.

Bees are so much fun to photograph! They are always so busy, you have to sit very still and be very patient. (Two things I am NOT good at)

I didn’t have time to break out the camera today, but I’ll make time this weekend. Instead I will share with you some pics I took with my iPhone of my little friends.

Take time to smell the roses today! (Or lavender, honeysuckle or whatever might be growing close to you, I’m lucky enough to have it all here!)


Also, this is my first blog post using the WordPress app on my phone! I’m so fancy today! Technology is fantastic!
