Rosy Wishes

Happy Tuesday!  So glad it is cooling down a bit here in the Carolinas. I love the summer, but I am definitely ready for fall weather.  And with the winding down of summer our nest will soon be empty as we move our youngest onto campus at UNC/Chapel Hill this weekend.  Chapters are ending and new ones are beginning for all of us.  This time next week, the house will be emptier and quieter but I am actually looking forward to it and some time for me and the hubby.   My bucket list and domestic list are both miles long!   Yet my first endeavor will be to get back into some routine of crafting!  I did have a bit crafty time in the past couple days.  So I wanted to post this card before I must take leave again to help my son shop and pack and move in.
