There is no way to capture all that this past weekend meant to me or how much fun was had. But a few words come to mind… Gratitude Friendship Reunion Joy I got the sweet opportunity to go to Parker, Colorado and help with a “changing of the guard” party. The store that I used to stage for, Cotton Kloset, has just shifted ownership from my friend Sandy to my friend Tracy. In between running around to get food and decor for the celebration, I also had the sheer joy of seeing friends, neighbors, and my son, Blake, who is staying in Fort Collins this summer to work. (Such a sweet bonus to this trip for this mama’s heart!) Colorado was beautiful, as always, and greeted me each morning with towering pines and still-green grass (we are experiencing a severe drought here in California and our grass is quickly turning “golden” due to water restrictions.) 🙂 Friends were even more lovely inside and out than ever before. 🙂 Blake, in every way, has only become even more amazing. 🙂 And though it was a whirlwind long weekend, the mood was relaxed, the fellowship was sweet and the event itself a pure treat. Here are few pictures (I didn’t get enough with friends and none with Blake….grrrrrr…..): Thank you, Tracy and Sandy, for letting me come back to be part of the celebration. So very proud of both of you and the new adventures that await you both, both at Cotton Kloset and beyond. Thanks to all who helped to make this such a memorable weekend in so many different ways! Love you all!
