{Garden Party Arrangement}

 
I have so much to share with you but no time to get the pictures uploaded or a post prepared.The past three weeks have been crazy busy and the end isn’t insight until next week.

For those of you already enjoying summer vacation, I’m wishing you sunny skies, relaxed schedules, and fun family times! I’m almost there as the light at the end of the tunnel is finally visible :)

A few highlights of what’s been going on in my corner of the world...

~ The Child and Family Agency Wine Tasting and Auction was a HUGE success! We had a sold out event with fun for everyone. On top of that, we raised a record amount for our cause which will be greatly appreciated and go to very good use.

~ An evening of celebration was enjoyed at the Coast Guard Academy to honor a few fellow teachers in their amazing accomplishments ~ these women are so dedicated and have hearts of gold!

~ It only took me a solid week but I finally distributed the 5 yards of dirt and 8 yards of mulch around our yard {this isn’t including the original 8 yards that were already laid} that were delivered the week of solid rain. This was an incredible workout/ weight loss plan but next time I’m hiring someone to take on this task.

~ My garden is planted despite the torrential rains and now record heat ~ I’m ready for some normal weather.

~ The Garden Party I hosted in my home for my sweet friend was not only fabulous but we actually surprised her! You have no idea the difficulty behind this task ~ a  true miracle

~ The end of the year is here and over the next 2 weeks I’ll be busy with those activities. We are kicking off the fun with Field Day tomorrow. I’m happy to report that the sky will be blue and the sun will be out in all its glory ~ the recipe for a fun filled day at play!

Hi Jo,

Oh you will be so looking forward to your holidays.
Sounds like life has been busy there for you. Glad to hear that the garden party went well and I love the floral arrangement.
Hope that the sun is shinning there and your garden is growing nicely.

Happy week

You've been on my mind lately as I feel terrible that it's been so long since we've chatted! Life is just unusually busy for both of us right now...I know we'll catch up on the other side.

The flower arrangement is beautiful. Some of my very favorites. So glad to hear the party was a success.

By the way, an FYI, the Boden tunic is too short to wear as a dress. So cute though. :)

Good luck with all of your end of the year activities.

Thinking of you!
Kathy

What a gorgeous table and flowers, Jo! Hope you get some well-deserved downtime soon. Have a wonderful week. xx

You are one busy lady. Spreading all of that dirt was a huge job. Good luck with field day and here's to a great summer.

Susan R said...

Wow! You get out late in the year. Either that or we get out early in the year.
I'm happy to report that my garden is doing well. We did get a fair bit of rain, so that helped a lot and it's been pretty warm out, so I've been out to water every day.
I hope you get to slow down and enjoy your summer holiday soon.
Love the beautiful flowers.
