GOING TO NEED A BIGGER BOOKCASE!

I always display family pictures on the top of my bookcase in the living room.  Well, I'm going to need a bigger bookcase!  A few weeks back my son Erik called to tell me that my daughter-in-law Erin is expecting!  Last year I wrote that they were expecting, but sadly Erin had a miscarriage.  After a couple more failed attempts it looks like all is well!  She has passed the crucial first trimester and the doctor says all looks well.  She even said that she was going out to buy some new clothes as her's were getting too tight.  So, if you would please keep them in your prayers, it would be much appreciated.

Now, if that wasn't enough good news, this weekend my granddaughter called (she's the cute one in the purple tiara) and said her mommy is going to have a little baby!  Yes, that's right!  We're expecting two grandchildren this fall.  My cup runneth over!  Just wanted to share this bit of joyous news with you all, dear friends.  I'm knitting a very cozy baby bunting.  Looks like I'll have to knit another!  Should have it finished this week and will post pictures when I do.

    1. Thank you Lily! Just keep plugging away at your dreams. Tasha Tudor often quotes Thoreau, “If one advances confidently in the direction of (her) dreams, and endeavors to live the life which (she) has imagined, (she) will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” So true!
