I’m really hoping that this day does turn out to be super fun! We have a special party planned. We found out when my oldest was 12 that he is color blind. It sure explained a lot of the arguments I had with him as a child over his clothes matching and what color the moon was. Part of me felt really bad because all that time I had thought he was just kind of being a pain. The biggest issue it caused for him was when he joined the military and the list of jobs he could do shrank to 3. But, that’s what led him to his life as a Paramedic and teacher. Things do sometimes happen for a reason. Fast forward and he is now 26. For his birthday last June, my husband and I, his dad and stepmom, and my mom all went in together and bought him a gift certificate to get a pair of Enchroma glasses. If you haven’t heard of them, they are supposed to help people who are color blind to see many of the colors they haven’t seen before, or at least see them in all their richness. He ordered them a few weeks ago and they arrived on Tuesday. Today we are all meeting at mom’s for a “color reveal” party. I am so excited for him and I really and truly hope that he is one of the 80% who actually sees a difference! At least they offer a money back guarantee if they don’t work. We’re all looking forward to it.
But, while I have a few minutes, I thought I’d stop by here, share the story, and add a few pages I worked on with some awesome new releases this week.
DYD is happening at The Lilypad! I absolutely love documenting December! This will be my 6th year doing it and it is one of my favorite projects of the year! I’ll talk more about it as December approaches, but I did get my cover done for this year!!
Just Jaimee has a super fun kit out this weekend as well – Dogs! This is my sweet baby!
And over at The Sweet Shoppe, River~Rose has an absolutely gorgeous new kit – Flurries. It almost makes me like snow haha
I spent some time last night catching up on PL. I just have this week to do and I am up to date. You can see all those pages HERE.
I’m going to spend the rest of my free time today working on some December foundation pages so that I have a jump on it before December actually gets here!
Hope you have an amazing rest of your weekend!! Peace, out…
