Sometimes we all get so busy in our lives we don’t slow down and enjoy the little things. My husband and I have a soon-to-be 16 year old son, Jacob. He is the love of our lives. We enjoy being with him. Even if we aren’t all sitting in the same room of our house we are together. This past weekend Jacob spent the weekend with my husband’s parents. He has such a sweet relationship with his Nana and Pop Pop and he enjoys being with them, going on vacation and had already made plans to spend his Spring break with them next week. Yes, he gets spoiled by his Nana! He loves her waffles and every time he goes over there she never lets him down–he gets his waffles. My husband, RD, and I had some quality “couple” time while he was being spoiled. We didn’t do anything exciting but enjoyed taking a drive, shopping for trees and having a nice quiet meal together. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to reconnect – just the two of us. He is my best friend forever and always. So, what does that have to do with “Happy Beginnings”? Well, today one of my beautiful nieces ask me if I would be willing to make her bridal party jewelry for her. I have been over the moon excited about her upcoming wedding but I’m honored that she would ask me to do that. I’m so happy to be a part of her happy beginnings. Her wedding is in October so as soon as her wedding party gets to see their treasures then I will share them on a future blog. Thanks for spending a little time with me today! Till next time.
