THINK SPRING!!???? HOW??





















SUO challenge for today? Think SPRING....which is kind of hard to do considering the snow that is falling even as I type.  I remember when I was in Africa, (just over a week ago) and the temp was upwards of 100 degrees one night and I said to my husband in the middle of the night when the power went out and the fan went off....."I really hope when we get home winter isn't completely over" - OH man, I could EAT those words!!!  We had an awesome and wonderful trip and time with our precious family in Africa.  Three weeks of vacation - so nice to get out of our regular routine.....it was heavenly.  I plan to download some pics to this blog soon, I just got my pics organized over the weekend.  It's one of those things - we looked forward to that trip for so so long, and then in three short weeks it becomes a memory.  Aren't you thankful for memories?  And we made some really really happy ones.  Our grand daughters are precious, and we wouldn't have ever wanted to leave them except for missing our precious grand children HERE!!  Life is good and in the end, you have to remember, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."  And thinking about that trip, well it does just make me SMILE.  Happy Tuesday everyone!!  Happy Stamping!!
