Graduation Weekend!

My niece Abigail graduated from high school this past weekend, and, I have to admit, I'm having a difficult time with this whole "passage of time" thing!  It was difficult enough when Emilie graduated two years ago, and left us to go to college.  But now...with the youngest "leaving the nest"...I find myself a little melancholy.

THIS is how I think of my nieces...

...but this was actually SO VERY LONG AGO!  Now...we look like this...

I moved to the cities SEVENTEEN YEARS ago to be part of their lives, and it's been an AMAZING, and WONDERFUL journey...from choir grade level Sunday dinners.'s been one of the BEST decisions I EVER made.

They have both become such amazing young women!  I KNOW that they are SUPPOSED to grow up... and move on...and grow up...but I'm DEFINITELY experiencing "growing pains" in the process.

That being are some photos of the weekend.  So"growing up"...!!

Here's hoping YOU were able to celebrate family...and love...and "growing up" with YOUR favorite people recently too!!!
