Short and sweet today . . .





"Every person is like a single tulip. 
While they may blend when together, each one is special in its own light."

- Daniella Kessler

Well, sometimes it's really good to be behind . . . I had wanted to share something else today, since it's anything goes for texture Tuesday, but as per usual I didn't get around to finishing it for today. But that's okay, because I think it will fit into "wise words" for next next, lucky me.  Of course in my defense, I wasn't home all weekend And on Saturday we had a whirlwind day driving to the A&M campus and then to the UT campus so my daughter could better make her final decision as to what she will do next year. A twelve hour day, eight of it driving in the car, whew! She was accepted to every school she applied at except for the one she really wanted to go to, Murphy's law! But there is always a plan B to get to where you want to be. She will go to UT San Antonio and do their CAP program and transfer to UT the next year, unless she decides she wants to stay at UTSA. 

I'm not ready for this... 

I'm not ready for this...

I'm not ready for this . . . 

The End.

Love, Kim
XO

P.S.- It's spring break and although we aren't going anywhere . . . it's spring break . . . so if you don't see me here on Thursday, I will be back next week!

Everything will be fine...you will miss her like hell, but then you kinda get used to her being gone. At least that was how it was with my kids....altho I loved it when they came home to visit or to drop off their dirty laundry.

Love the tulips...!!!

I love the tulips!

I dread the day when my oldest leaves the nest. I know that day is not too far away.

Tulips are favorites. This is really lovely - so soft and dream like. As for the kid thing...we never are. Ready that is. Funny though, they always seemed to be!!

Congrats on the big choice! I am sure she will do fantastically!

Oh these are the things that terrify me as a parent- especially because I have them here with me 24/7. Deep breath. It will be okay. Keep us posted.

Gabriela said...

You must be so proud of her...it is a bittersweet time but as they go I think:"Isn't this what we loved them and trained them for?"And then I smile for their lives are off to a new start.....

The Sage Butterfly said...

The tulips are lovely. I hope you have a wonderful spring break.

Donna Mason said...

She CAN NOT possibly be ready to go to college! I recall her being at my studio with you one day (last month??? nope!) and she was just going into Jr High!
