Summer Family Room

Our family room is always my favorite space in our home because it is the most representative of all of our family's favorite activities and places. For our summer mantel, I created a sign using a poem I love about mountains by Tyler Knott Gregson.

Checking In - Early Summer

Hello friends! My apologies for dropping off the face of the blogosphere without explanation but life has been full of family in all of the best ways. My oldest graduated from high school. Wow, I feel old.
I am sure every mom at this stage wonders just how those years passed by so quickly. I thought I was handling it all pretty well until I found myself driving along and crying to the Dixie Chicks song, "Godspeed". It was the line, "Superman's in pajamas on the couch" that really got to me. It seems like just yesterday that our little boy insisted on super hero pjs (with the velcro-ed cape) every night. We are excited to watch as our son takes the next steps into adulthood during his college years. He is extremely focused on a career as a firefighter or police officer (no surprise there, right?) and has already been preparing for those jobs by becoming both a volunteer firefighter and certified EMT in our community. He is both dedicated and persistent. We are proud.
