Graduation Announcement, Announcement, Ano-ounnce-ment!

Yes. I did sing that in case you were wondering. It's the beginning to a camp song we used to sing at a little place I like to call girls camp. Can I get an amen on that one? Amen.

This lovely announcement is an exciting one because it marks the milestone of hard work and accomplishment. I'm sure as I'm saying these words, she's working hard right now preparing for finals. Yes, I'm sure you already guessed it... it's a graduation announcement! My lovely friend Taylor that you met previously is graduating next week with her degree in social work. I have no doubt that Taylor will save the world one person at a time. If she were running for president I would vote for her. Not only because she is so smart and charming (not to mention a great public speaker) but I know she would some how manage to make Harry Potter and Water World some sort of national holiday. I'm down with that.

Here are three variations of graduation announcements that yours truly photographed and designed :) Enjoy!

P.S. If any you lovelies are in need of any design work... please feel free to contact yours truely.

God Bless America

This 4th of July weekend was a wonderful chance to reflect on the freedoms we have, the friends we share it with and the memories we make. We did all things American by camping Friday night, spending Saturday at the lake followed by hanging out at Wendy's while we waited for our miss placed keys to arrive, played games with friends and ate yummy desserts on Sunday, ate pancakes for breakfast and watched a parade on Monday. Just in case you were wanting a play by play.

Of course I got all decked out for the occasion. Chris said I looked like a 50's sailor girl. Yes! I was right on the mark.

People in the parade were handing out all sorts of goodies. Chris scored with his one handed catch of a Jimmy John's sandwich!
Aside from those cowboys holding the American flag, I can't think of anything more American than Taco Bell and Star Wars. Two American classics.
We had so much fun this weekend with our friends Taylor and Logan! We feel so blessed to live in the country that we do and that we were able to celebrate in our small town. Small town 4th of July is unlike any other. I hope you all had a fun and safe 4th of July weekend!
