I just had to the picture by closing my eyes.

Maria comes home for her summer vacation today and I am all jittery and excited. I don't think I have ever been this excited about seeing her before. Even when she came home for her winter break after being away for the first time.

Then again this is the last time she will be coming home for vacation. Although her schooling will continue; she will be making a new home with a new husband come this Autumn. So, this will be my last summer with her.

We have a lot of big things in store for this summer. I know we will be making the most of it as it is the last time our family will be together like this. I am looking forward to bright sunny days spent on the beach, picnics in the park, being cooped up in my parents' basement as we do wedding prep, running errands with my mom as the countdown continues, welcoming our brother home from his long trip to South America, and having picnics with my babe and baby. Maria and I have a fun surprise planned for this weekend...stay tuned!

Sunday Bliss

Sunday is the day we slow down and really appreciate what is around us.  When we catch up with ourselves after a busy week.

Starting the week out with a movie night. ~M

It's a girl! (not mine a friend's) ~T
