Celebrating One Year

I am finishing up the first year of my retirement.  And I am a happy camper!

I have discovered many things in the past 12 months:

-Pajama days are highly under-rated

-I have more projects (and fabric) than I will be able to finish in my lifetime

-Quilting buddies can get you in A LOT of trouble

-Laughing is contagious, road trips with friends are the best

-There are so many talented people in Gwinnett Co. and they share and encourage freely

-Guild, workshops and retreats are addictive

-When  you leave the house, it will probably end up costing $100

-It doesn't matter what you look like in a bathing suit

All in all, I am in love with my new life style.  I have the time to do what I want to do.  I have the time to enjoy my granddaughters.  I have time to smell the flowers and reflect on how I am so blessed.
And on a side note:  Spooky and Wild Willie seem to enjoy having me around more.

It sure goes fast doesn't it? My Mum retired in July last year and wow has it flown. She has travelled a lot, spent time with her grand kids more often, celebrated her 60th extensively in March and is always busy. Congratulations on your anniversary
