The Cousins Are Coming The Cousins Are Coming And I Am Going......

My cousins from Pennsylvania,
my home state,
are coming to visit.
We have not spent any real time together
in over FORTY years!

So, while they are here I will be taking
A BLOGGING BREAK
for the week.

 I put this on
the chalkboard in my kitchen.
The chalkboard
 is an old window with two panes.
Yes- You are right-
My printing is not all that great-
Nothing like the professional chalkboards
you see out there.
But...
I love it anyway!
Bottom:
Top:
I can't wait for
My Cousins to get here
and meet my family.
Let's hope they don't go home
early after meeting 
this crazy crew.

SEE YOU SOON!

Have a fun time, Diana. I get together with my cousins at least once a year. It's fun to be with other that share a family connection from our childhood.

Susie said...

Diana, You'll enjoy having time with them...you are a family person. They will love the grandkids. Blessings to all. xoxo,Susie

Have a blast. Cousins are the best type of family!

Amber said...

Enjoy your time. I'm sure it will go quickly. Bruce's sister and husband came to visit from PA also and time whizzed by so fast. Oh, and your writing looks GREAT! I had posted something I wrote on one of my boards with my "great" handwriting and I had someone actually suggested that it would look better if I used a chalk pen. I nicely thanked her and told her I was "old school" and like real chalk. Bwahahaha!

Have a great visit with your cousins. I know how you feel about them, my Dad had 10 brothers and sisters. My granny had 43 grandchildren, I was number 29. We can't help but laugh till it hurts when we get together! Have a great time!

How fun for you to get a visit with your cousins. I am extremely close to one of my cousins, but hardly see the others.

Your chalkboard is great. We cannot and should not ever compare ourselves or our homes to the professionals. Your chalkboard looks lovely and was done by you.

(FYI, my blog address has changed, in case you try to find me and it says I've gone away. I haven't, just have a new address. Hope you'll still stop by and visit.)

Have fun with your family! It will be fun catching-up and sharing stories. I LOVE what you've done with your window. It makes it even more charming that you wrote the sentiment. Didn't know you were from Pennsylvania. It's a gorgeous state!
