Life Is An Adventure
I discovered a while back that scrapbooking has gone digital. Probably did a long time ago while I was doing other things. Anyway, I helped my friend Carol make a great Shutterfly book of her River Cruise vacation, and it reminded me of how much I love scrapbooking.
And so I used Shutterfly to make a great anniversary present for my honey (shhh!) that I hope he will enjoy. What do you think?
Clearly, it is easier to create a special memory for someone you know. But if you don't have time or talent for such things, I would be glad to help you create an unforgettable, one of a kind gift for a special occasion.. I have packages available depending on the number of pictures you have, the number of pages you want in your book, and the amount of direction you are willing to give me.
UPDATE: I paid extra for expedited shipping. The best I could get for less than the book was worth was that it would arrive Friday, April 21. But they got it to me by the 20th, our actual anniversary. Big kudos to Shutterfly and UPS for making our special day even more special!
I have mentioned in several places our love for cruising. One of our favorite places is CocoCay - the private island owned by Royal Caribbean. Several of their Caribbean cruises stop there. We went to the Bahamas in December, 2016 and had an opportunity to stop there and get in some sun and fun.
At this time of year, I always look back with fondness at the many ways my late mother-in-law made Christmas special.
console television set, I knew Christmas was just around the corner.
Unbelievable that it was 44 years ago. We were on our way out to dinner at the S&S Cafeteria at Lenox Square in Atlanta. I heard it for the first time on the car radio. “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been shot and killed today in Memphis.”
Now this was shocking news for all who cared about the civil rights movement, but Dr. King’s death was personal for me. His daughter, Yolanda, was in the 8th grade, a year behind me in school. I didn’t know her at the time, but she was a good friend of many of my black friends. Kids were in mourning that next day. Word spread like wildfire around the school, and people were speaking in a hush and tiptoeing past her class – as if she were there! only years later did I realize she would not have been in school that day, or for the next several days.
Does college really matter any more?
On one side you have people who believe that a college degree is the new high school diploma, and that you can just barely get a job if you don't have one. On the other side are people who cannot afford the price tag to send their kid (who doesn't really want to go) to college, and who wonder if their kid will ever be suited for the kind of job that will command a high enough salary to be worth graduating with thousands of dollars in student loan debt.
Trigger Warning: I am an enthusiastic supporter of @realdonaldtrump and my Twitter feed reflects this. If this is a problem for you, feel free to move on. I'd rather you stick around and try to understand, and I will do the same.
