It's a new day in our family....

It's a new day in the Farquhar-Guzman family ... our son Danny was traded yesterday.  Yes, it sounds awful, doesn't it?  But it's not as bad as it sounds as he is doing great in his Baseball career.  Danny will now play for the Oakland Athletics instead of the Toronto Blue Jays.  The first thing he asked me was if I could work with his new team's colors - green and gold.  I said yes!  We wish him well and I pray the Lord's favor will be upon him all the days of his life.

 This is Danny and his wife Lexie during Arizona Fall League.

I got to play a little in Lafayette and I made this layout using the fabulous BoBunny's  Olivia Collection.

 These swirls are made out of light wood from a company based in Australia called Dusty Attic. Treasured Memories sells them so I stocked up on  several of their fabulous designs.

Life can change in an instant! Plans can be changed in a twinkling of an eye....I say to you and to myself  today:  make sure you do not take your loved ones for granted. Tell them how much you love them! Have a blessed and fabulous day!
