Have A Wonderful and Happy Weekend

My youngest daughter turned 21 last week while we were away in Lake Tahoe so we're celebrating this weekend with a pub crawl.  It's such a different celebration as our children get older - not so much about cake and more about what they've longed to do as an adult (like being able to order a cocktail at a restaurant!)  It's been a beautiful, challenging, interesting, frustrating, humor-filled journey and through it all, I feel blessed by all three of my kids.  I hope your weekend includes something that makes you smile and brings you joy...and here are a few posts I enjoyed from around the web.
