[congratulating my mom!]

Last weekend Steve and I left at 12:30a.m. on Saturday morning for a VERY important occasion. . .my mom's graduation! She spent many years working on this master's degree--doing a class here and there in the summer and throughout the year. We are so proud of you mom!!! [I especially loved the photo of my dad holding his wallet, my mom holding her diploma. . .]

It was great to see family and talk about sweet baby--since we had just found out the day before that we were having a boy! Steve and I also were able to meet up with Steve's sister and her husband--who graduated with his undergraduate degree. Congratulations, John & Brooke!

Thought you would enjoy a picture of my adorable niece, Skye. . .they don't come cuter than that, folks!

Last, a picture of my sister's beautiful front door. . .I love visiting my sister. . .it's home away from home!
