Entering a New World...

He did it! My first child is now entering a new world, a new beginning. And, yes, I cried. He's the one, front and center with the bow tie...looking as if he's saying, "now what?"

Congratulations to my first born. Choose your path wisely and learn along the way. You will make a difference in this world even in small ways and in ways you'll never even know.

A short film

My oldest is graduating next week. Not from preschool or elementary school or high school. He's graduating from college.
How? How does this happen? He was just a little boy who I was chasing around the playground. It's scary. How fast time goes.

He's graduating with a BA in Communications with a concentration in film. So, allow me to share his final film (in college, that is) called Spotless. It's a short film (about 7 minutes), but it's pretty cool.

And, play with your kids. Chase them around the playground. Spend time with them. It's one thing I will never regret. Still, I miss the little boy, but love the man he's become.

It's May Day! May Baskets Galore...

One custom I love, love, love about Annapolis is the May Day basket displays throughout the town. Businesses and homes participate and some are so creative (especially the businesses)! Here are a few I thought I would share. These photos were taken by a friend of mine, Bridget Borel Avila. Let's take a stroll, shall we...

 Restaurant with a bicycle (cute!)
 I love the colors on this one:
 Running store:

 Local restaurant:
 More bikes!

 Another local restaurant:
 Alpaca store:
 A little boutique called The Pink Crab:
 Local bar where small concerts are held (I like this idea, but for some reason it reminds me of a funeral--maybe the colors or the arrangement...I don't know...)
Another bicycle:
Hope you enjoyed the May day tour of Annapolis. I'm headed down there myself tomorrow for a nice walk through the city...maybe I'll snap some more photos while I'm out!
