Hi friends! Sorry I've been away awhile. My computer monitor went out and I had to get a new one :( I've been busy with other things and trying to stay away from the computer a bit more so that certainly solved that problem, didn't it.. ha! I'm taking a little time off to get some things done around here and enjoy the wedding prep. I haven't really been working on any new projects because I've been painting signs, frames ect.. But.... a while back I ran across this album I started quite some time ago (okay.. probably 3 years ago lol). It was a kit I did for Scrappy Gourmet, so at the time I only needed to add a few photos. Well, I decided it was a shame I hadn't finished it. And with it being a album of photos of Jarad and Kate, I decided it was a good time to add photos and finish it up. So..... there are quite a few pages... but you can see by looking at these photos, just how long Jarad and Kate have been friends... ( even before they started dating) They met the Summer we moved here... so that's 13 years ago now.
below- Jarads graduation- Jarad graduated a year after Kate
I remember this being the first time I saw them holding hands. Dan and I looked at eachother like??? what?? I guess they are more than "friends" now. lol
I'll let Kate add the journaling
( below - top left photo........... oh.... they are soooo young!)
all summed up in random photos :)
Okay, I have a couple of other things I wanted to share with you.
First of all, If you haven't heard about the AccuCut GrandeMARK Challenge you can find out all about it HERE You have until May 31st
Be sure to pop over to the Heartwarming Vintage Blog and check out all the new Printable dolls! Here is just one set ...but you can see them all HERE.
And I have to share one photo from today. Earlier this afternoon Wes (oldest son) packed up his car to head to Grand Island for 4 months of training at the Police Academe. It's only about two hours from here and he will be able to come back on weekends..but the dog ( and us of course) are really going to miss having him around. He hasn't lived at home for years, not even in this town, but a few months ago when he got hired on at the police dept here, he started staying between our house and Jarad and Kates. Knowing he would be gone for four months, there was no sense in him finding a place and signing a lease/paying rent , until he gets this behind him. Well, lets just say, .... he is more of a dog person than I am.... and that is pretty severe! lol The dogs LOVE him!
So in this photo he's putting the last load in his car to leave.
Look in the front drivers seat. lol I think he has extra baggage he hasn't noticed yet :)
I hope you all have a fantastic week ahead!
Thanks for stopping by. I always love hearing from you.
