A Graduation And A Shout Out

Friday, May 20, 2011

It has been a busy week at my home sweet cottage. My  sweet youngest daughter graduated from our local Community College with a 4.00 point average. She has been accepted to several top rated Colleges and has chosen one to attend in the fall. I am so proud of her I could just burst.She is a wonderful young woman, beautiful inside and out. A hard worker and extremely focused and disciplined. I know she will be successful in her chosen career as a Cultural Anthropologist. They grow up so fast but I'm so happy with the woman my girls have become.My oldest will be returning to college in the fall to become a Registered Nurse.  I'm a lucky mom. On another note, remember my ottoman makeover?

Well I noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a source that I didn't recognize. I clicked over only  to find out that  the source was  Re Nest  on Apartment Therapy. Who knew? Thanks  Apartment Therapy for the shout out on my ottoman redo.
