The Hearts We Leave Behind

My friend, Deb is planning her grand opening at The Dapper Doxie for October 1st. Deb is planning to have at least one new kit available in her shop. I'm looking forward to seeing what she creates next. Deb's kits have such an elegant, soft vintage feel.

I decided to do another couple of pages for my heritage album. During the early years of my mom's life, she lost several immediate family members. Joyce, her older sister, died unexpectedly at the age of 13. My mom told me, that she gave me my middle name, after her sister's. These are the only pictures I have of Joyce by herself. There don't seem to be any baby pictures of her. The quote I used is by Thomas Campbell from Hallowed Ground.

We've had frost the last couple of mornings and it's been a cool week. I'm looking forward to seeing all the beautiful colors of fall, although I hope summer isn't quite finished yet. It is definitely more peaceful at home, with Raquel back to school. Raquel says she had THE BEST first day ever, I hope she feels that way about the rest of the school year. Ayden is definitely keeping me busy, without Raquel here to help amuse her. One of her favorite outside activities in bouncing on the trampoline. We've also been taking Lady out during the day. Ayden loves helping me lead Lady around and occasionally gets to have a little "ride" . Anything to do with the horses is a highlight to her day. It's so sweet to see her standing on the fence calling them to come in from the field. But soon we'll be spending more time inside and I've been thinking maybe it's time I put together my own kit. We'll have to see what happens with that....

Have a great weekend!
