A Life in Celebration

It is warm and sunny here in Florida, and yet I know some parts of the country have been dealing with late spring snowstorms. My son and daughter in law up in New York had been dealing with a week of rainstorms and followed that up the earthquake on Friday. I am so happy that no real damage was done by that quake.

Easter Wrap up…

It was a wonderful week with my daughter, her girlfriend and my granddaughters here in Florida. My husband has hidden coins in plastic eggs as our own children and now our granddaughters have gotten older. This year I suggested the eggs be “hidden” in the swimming pool. When the girls finally spotted the eggs in the pool, they jumped in, pajamas and all! If you regularly read my newsletters, you know I said I would let my granddaughters choose the Easter meal. We ended up with take away Chinese food! It was delicious and enjoyed by all!

The front porch is also the perfect spot for setting a luncheon table for a few friends. I chose a lemon theme for this luncheon table.
