My oldest son turns 26 on May 2nd. Really NOT sure how that has happened so fast! Last night we took both him and Morgan (plus the rest of us) out to dinner to their favorite restaurant to celebrate their week apart birthdays. Pizookie!
I piddled and piddled around with this card and wasn't quite sure if I was happy with the result until he opened it and loved it. He started going over all the little details asking me did I sew on it, how did I get the color on the tag part, what did I do to ink the edges and such. And then his comment that he'll add it to the box of things I've made for him over the years. It put a smile on my heart for sure! He's growing into such a great man.
