Thank you for spending time....

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Pecan

Hello to all of you! I hope you are having the most glorious of days!

I have been spending some time with my family - enjoying the last day of Ryan's play on Saturday, a big day of shopping for Tyler after church before he headed back to school, a grand date day with David on Monday that included lunch out with our pastor and his wife, and Ryan's band banquet last night. oh, how I love to spend time with all of them! :) David and I also hand delivered some cards while we were out, and that was great fun as well.

So it is with a heart full of rich memories that I share my card with you. As I was a young girl, I spent many summers with my beautiful Aunt Alma, who passed away a few months ago. When I saw this image, 'Baking Muffins with Mom', in the new releases last week at A Day for Daisies, I knew I had to have it. it reminded me so much of the times I spent with my beloved aunt, baking in her kitchen. oh, could that woman cook! and she had the most gorgeous deep black hair. I come from Choctaw Indian descent, and she really had the amazing hair of our ancestors. So this card is in her honor. Thank you, Aunt Alma, for spending time with me! I love and miss you dearly!
