A Wonderful Surprise.

Funny how some things happen, isn't it? Last week was pretty rough. My Little Man was pretty sick with the flu/cold for several days. One day he just slept, had a fever so high he just couldn't stay awake. This child rarely gets sick and when he does, he is still pretty active and happy-go-lucky. I was pretty stressed about it.
I can happily report he is almost as good as new and back to his old self.

And then Friday a Nor 'Easter blew through (and I mean BLEW) so hard that it knocked down this monster tree.Well, HALF of it anyway.

And THEN the other half blew down.
EEK!
(see below)



But after assessing the situation on Saturday, I feel VERY fortunate that the tree fell the way that it did and not directly on my house (which it very easily could have) or WORSE-on a person or car passing by. Thank God for small miracles!

And THEN, I got this wonderful email from Kimberly over at Hip 2B Square scrapbooking , inviting me to her design team!! I have been watching her blog for awhile now and the creations her DT puts out with her fab kits are beautiful and SO inspiring. I can only hope that I do them justice.
You can read the announcement HERE. Be sure to stop by and check her out!

I think this is going to be a GREAT week!
Thanks for popping by!

Very lucky on the tree, glad you all made out ok! Did you see the stagging uptown that fell over? It was pretty scary trying to make my way home from work that day dodging tree limbs!
