May Recap

Happy June. It is finally starting to warm up and feel like summer here. I was still wearing my winter PJ's until last week. I know they say April showers bring May flowers but I think this year those months didn't get the memo. Fortunately even with the cool weather our tulips in the backyard still bloomed though and they were beautiful.
I took this photo right when they were starting to bloom. They were pinker in real life but still beautiful.
May started out pretty good. Emilia got me these for Mother's. Still a huge Gilmore Girls Fan so they were the perfect gift. Rich also got me a really cute Ecard and gift certificate from Amazon too.
We took Emilia to take her driving test a few weeks ago and get her license which we waited a month for. She made the appointment online a for "New Drivers License" asked me if that was right which I thought it was and didn't think twice about it. After waiting in line for 15 minutes, the DMV person tells us we don't have an appointment for a driving test. We made an appointment for a new license for out of state drivers. ???? Now we have to wait ANOTHER month to get the right appointment. They really need to fix their website to include descriptions for the services they offer. We were all really disappointed it didn't happen but hopefully the next time it will all work out.
On a happier note Emilia finished high school the middle of the month. It is hard to believe that our home school journey has come to an end. I am so glad that I was able to home school her from the beginning and spend all that time with her. I know homeschooling is not for everyone but it was right for us. I am so proud of all she has accomplished so far and I know whatever she chooses to do in the future she will be great at. In the meantime she is continuing to work for me and is adding more things to the shop frequently. We are planning a party to celebrate with family and friends later in July. She got her diaploma from Keystone last week though.
This 1/2 birthday boy onesie and bow tie set is new to the shop it goes great with my 1/2 birthday hat and new 1/2 birthday banner.

Here is another great photo from Jessica Cernat Photography who's photo of her dog Smash I shared last month. This is her girl dog Fergie wearing my dog birthday crown.
Lastly here is a new cookie recipe for you to try.
I am in love with these Pecan, Walnut and Ginger cookies. I changed the sugar in the raw to honey though to make them Paleo. I also used a real egg.
That's all for now. I hope the rest of your June is a good one and I will be back next month with more to share then.
