BasicGrey Wisteria & SU Easter Card

Happy Easter! I have had a fun and fabulous Spring break with my family. I left for NC last Sunday with J&K (my daughters) and spent time with my Supreme girlfriends. I miss them all so much! I recognized what a magical group we were from the time we named ourselves "The Supremes" in September 2002. It was difficult to leave them when we moved to VA almost 6 years ago. I am the youngest in our group (age 43) and Martha the oldest (age 78). Martha passed away peacefully March 17. If anyone could have beaten lung cancer, it would have been her :) I missed her funeral the previous week, but Sharon, Kaye, and Dianne filled me in. We laughed and had such a great time together last Monday & Tuesday. We stamped & packaged over 500 cards for the troops, ate out together, and took field trips to Hobby Lobby & a local scrapbook store, and we shared our favorite Martha stories...we laughed so much, it was just as if she were with us.

Wednesday I drove home, did laundry & re-packed.

Early Thursday a.m. Doug & I went to my parents' house in MD to see my nephew. He is such a sweetie, and he has a special bond with our girls. We left the girls off at my parents' house in MD then went to Gettysburg, PA for a mini getaway. Doug brought his bike & I rented one. We rode our bikes around part of the battlefield and into town too.
Then we took a Segway tour of Gettysburg. This was our first time riding a Segway. It was so much fun! The tour is ~3 hours. We might just plan our next vacation around a Segway tour. We picked up the girls at my parents' house yesterday and had our Easter dinner a day early. We (mostly) unpacked last night. Today we ate breakfast @ Wegmans then did major grocery shopping; we needed eggs to dye! They are cooking now, and I am working on loads of laundry. It is a really relaxing Easter Sunday. Perfect.

I hope your Easter/Spring Break has been equally lovely :)
