All my birds are back in the nest!

IMG_2820


Happy Saturday and what a happy day it is for me!

As many of you know my husband's job has taken him first to the other side of Canada and then for the last four months to Wisconsin.  He came home almost every three week's, except when things at work were crazy.  The last time he was home was 7 weeks ago when we took our son up to university.  So for the last 7 weeks my daughter and I have looked after things here.  

Well today my husband is coming home and picking up my son from university on his way.  My husband is coming home to stay and will be working a 30 minute drive from home, hopefully for a long while. My son, Ben, has a fall reading week so he will be home for a week!

So I am a happy wife and mom today because all of my birds are going to be back in the nest!

I used my very neglected Lawn Fawn Home Sweet Home set to create a card for my family. Brooklyn and I at home waiting on the arrival of the boys! A little Glossy Accents on the heart to finish it off.
