Room for Rent

As we got closer to the end of the school year Jamie decided she was moving in with Grandma and Grandpa for the summer. All of us including her Mom and Dad laughed a bit and said OK that is fine. Honestly we didn't think she was serious and would forget about it as most six year olds do but little did we know she meant it! About a week later Lisa can't find any pajamas and is thinking how can they just disappear well they didn't disappear my darling granddaughter has packed her bags to move in with us as soon as school closes! It seems she is quite serious about this so I tell Lisa OK let her stay for a few nights she will get it out of her system. Now school has ended and naturally Jamie is staying with us for a few nights and her Mother goes into her bedroom to put her laundry away and she finds two notes written by Jamie one on the bed and the other on her brand new dresser and the notes say are you ready for this?


If you know anyone looking to rent a room for the summer give Lisa a call.

Happy Birthday Lisa

Yesterday was Lisa's Birthday hard to believe how quickly time passes, I can still remember the day she was born and the day I brought her home from the hospital!

Naturally I would have to design a page for her birthday and the inspiration for the layout was a daily challenge for the month of June posted each day at Jessica Sprague's website. The challenge for June 14th was to to give tribute to someone special by creating a layout that celebrates them. A perfect challenge for my daughter on her birthday.I would like to say that I have participated in all of the challenges but work and life is a bit demanding and I am a bit behind in the Challenge A Day!

Playing tunes to fit your rhyme........

I love Carly Simon and her song "Legend in your own time" reminds me of my son Dominick. He is an aspiring singer songwriter and his songs are amazing. I am in awe of his writing ability especially since I am always struggling for the right words when writing just about anything including my blog posts! He performed an acoustic set this week at the Vibe Lounge in Rockville Center just him, his guitar, and his songs. He has not had a live show for quite some time and it was truly a joy to watch him and listen to all of my favorites by him and a few cover songs. If you want to see him at any upcoming shows in the future just let me know and I will send the info!

I carry this in my heart.....

Been a bit busy the past two weeks and have not had a chance to post. This picture is the last one taken of my Mom and Dad before he passed away and it captures a very special moment in his life. We always celebrated Easter in Las Vegas when my parents lived there and this Easter we also celebrated my Dad's 70th Birthday with a surprise birthday party. Who knew this would be his last birthday and life as we knew it would never be the same....Memories and photos are so precious. They are all we have to remember our family and the special times in our lives... this is why I scrapbook
