This week is one of those weeks of summer that I wish would never end. The temps are in the upper 70's/low 80's with no humidity, an occasional gentle breeze, sunny and oh so perfect for being (or working) outside.
It's a summertime full of celebrating around here, and Happy Girl wanted to plan some fun for her friends, too. She planned an easy menu of hamburgers, chips, watermelon and lemonade with s'mores by the campfire for dessert.
Eighteen years ago our son, Jonathan was born. I remember countless people telling me to enjoy every minute because they grow up so fast. In that moment of life...sleepless nights and blurred days from pure exhaustion, I couldn't comprehend that statement.
These license plate boxes had been formulated in my brain for quite a few weeks before the big grad party, but was one of those projects that didn't quite get done until the morning of the party. Oh, the truth comes out to the relatives...now they'll know I'm not perfect.
