all that matters

One day away from the month of March, a.k.a. my birthday month, I find myself forced to consider the fact that Jodie will be graduating in less than 90 some odd days! I don’t know the exact number of days. Ask her. She, no doubt, has a countdown going on. It’s snowballing I tell you and although she isn’t my first…she’s my 4th…I find myself trying to wrap my head around the inevitable.

Honestly parents of those young, totally dependent ones who steal your sleep, slow down and savor the diapers, the potty training, the teething, the snuggles and all of that. No really.

My youngest daughter is thisclose to graduating from high school and dancing on to the next big thing for herself. FAFSAs for her and her other sisters still in school have been filed. Jodie is finishing up assorted grant and scholarship applications. Her cap and gown has been ordered; and all the other Senior activities preceding graduation are coming up fast and furious. There’s no getting away from this reality. She and I both consider whether she wants to send out grad announcements or not. Honestly, we are just not feeling what the school has contracted to offer so we start looking elsewhere. It’s then that I remember one of my favorite cards I received from a dear friend over the holidays which was printed by Minted. I loved the design as well as the overall quality of the card. So I began to look through what they have to offer in card designs for graduation. So many lovely designs created by Minted’s community of independent designers, all easily customizable to suit what Jodie (and her parents) want to share with everyone. There are definitely a couple designs that would be perfect…and affordable too because AMDA and dancing shoes and all it takes to feed that dancer ain’t cheap. Narrowed down to a couple possibilities, I find myself distracted as I explore what else Minted has to offer because they offer so much, so much good design that is their seasonal cards, wedding paper and decor products, stationery, party decor and art.
