a wish cake


it is definitely time to celebrate! i am actually walking around spontaneously bursing into song (showtunes), grinning like a cheshire cat, and giggling to myself. well, it is the last day of school. i am still so much like a kid, to have three whole months ahead of me with no school leaves me feeling giddy and marvelously free.
of course i start out the summer with grandiose plans of adventures with the kids, art hours that last until the wee morning light, and spectacular organization projects going on throughout the house. i am a bit realistic however, by the time august rolls around i already know i will be going crazy with three teenagers sleeping in until after lunch, the revolving front door, and the fridge opening so often it wont even keep the milk cold. i won't be able to wait until we start a real schedule again. but for today, this minute, i can't contain my excitement.

i am celebrating these things:

two birthdays this week: hannah is 14! and amanda is a few years older than that tomorrow. happy days girls

marina graduating tomorrow where is that little red headed girl of mine? she's all grown up and ready to save the world.

heading to the oregon coast for a week long holiday right on the ocean. we are going whale watching and to the aquarium. its a long 16 hour drive to the coast, but the first view of the ocean always takes my breath away!

last day of school today and waiting for me in the mailbox was a fat little package from kari . . . oh i do love little unexpected surprises in the mail.

a tall glass of coke zero on pebble ice

and the art nest is only a couple of weeks away, i can hardly wait!

i'm about ready to start singing again and can't sit still at the computer another minute so i'm off to celebrate. . .
cheers, julie

oh I SO know the last-day-of-school feeling! I'm the same way!! Being able to snugge in the mornings with my sweeties...no bus to catch. Yum!!

Artnest is JUST around the corner and I must say, the package I received today is darling! You and Candice do a GREAT job setting the vibe well before we're actually there!

Where on the coast are you going?

Hi there!! Enjoy enjoy enjoy your sweet summer! I so love the Oregon coast. I grew up in So Cal and was a surfer's girlfriend so spent lots of time at the beach. But the Oregon coast has a completely different, serene, peaceful, renewing vibe to it.

And enjoy that Coke Zero! I'm gonna go have one right now! :-)

Hi Julie, I was reminded of your blog by one of my consignors blog the monarchpost.typepad.com tonight,so I went to it and on your April 7 post the two girls (one being candice?) and her friend not the one next to her were at my sale this morning...they were sooo cute, so i guess I finally met Candice! Or did I??? Your blog is wonderful, you do such a lovely job with it.
