LOAD 14

For today, a quick two pager from photos taken yesterday before the graduation ceremony. Journaling reads:  
Knowing that the day was really about Sarah's Graduation, I had no expectation that anyone would acknowledge Mother's Day. So, I wasn't anticipating anything. But what I got was a nearly perfect day! The sun was shining, the weather was warm. We had a yummy lunch at Applebees. An unexpected card and gifts. No drama. Everyone was getting along. And then an impromptu photo shoot down by the Susquehanna River where I got this wonderful shot of me and my girls!  I am so blessed to have these wonderful young ladies in my life. This Mother's Day exceeded my expectations. 
I'm wearing sunglasses in the photo because I could barely keep my eyes open with them off.  It was about high noon when we were taking these pictures and the sun was super bright.  I'm amazed that we were able to get any decent photos given the time!
I did the base of these layouts several years ago as samples for the company I repped for.  It was nice to finally be able to put some photos with them and have the color scheme work so perfectly! Card is very nicely signed inside by all three girls. And I received a gift card for Michaels (craft store) and a certificate for a manicure! :)

I really like the thought of you celebrating the success of your girl on Mother's Day itself - her success = your success as her mother :)
