Happy Birthday, Mason!

First of all, I want to thank you all so much for the incredible messages of support after my last post. I was awed by the love out there and for the understanding you have shown. My family has become so close since we have moved to Colorado and I wouldn't trade it for the world!!

Secondly, I wanted to give you a glimpse of where I've been and what I've been focusing on the past several weeks. It began 10 years ago when one of my cousins got married and I realized that it would be the last time we'd all gather together... so I did something about it. I started organizing a family reunion, and every two years we all meet in Oklahoma for what we all consider one of the best weekends of the year! Here's a glimpse of our whole group:

Believe me when I say that it is a TREMENDOUS event with INCREDIBLE people, and I look forward to many, many more!

Okay, so another big event is that today is my oldest son's birthday! Mason is 12 today and I just finished his card. He's flying out to meet my husband in San Francisco (who's already there on business), and they're going to spend a fun-filled weekend together, just the two of them! Mason is looking SO forward to it! But it's his first time flying alone... so Mom's just a wee bit nervous! :)

I'm going to tuck this into a new book I bought for him and wrap it all up with a note that says he can't open it until the plane is taking off... it will give him a "hug" from Mom and a fun book to read on the flight. I will miss him!!

Also, I will be doing a PAPER SHARE on the new Designer Series Papers that are in the Holiday Mini... I have yet to calculate the cost, but I just wanted to give you a heads up in case anyone wants to jump on board... more details to come very soon...

Well, that's my update for now... I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying some wonderful family time!
