Three Photographs on Friday



First, Happy Birthday, to my beautiful daughter Megan. You are beautiful, inside and out, smart, strong and independent. Have a wonderful 23rd birthday, on Sunday. The day you were born, it was 70 degrees (here in Michigan) on March 10th - if only that were happening this year! We love you and wish you the best year ever.

Second, Melissa sent me this photo from Florida and I thought it was so cute. It is so fun to get dressed up for dinner, while on vacation. Especially, after a long day in the sun. 19 and on spring break - those are wonderful memories that help get you through the final exams to come.

Lastly, as I was going through old photos, I came across this memory from one of our lake vacations, when my girls and their cousins were little. This day, they all dressed like pirates and took a small rowboat to the island in the middle of the lake, for a treasure hunt. Their imagination was vivid and the older cousins helped the younger. They were so lucky to have those times together and create wonderful memories; brought back with the sight of a photograph.


Have a great weekend!
