Precious Pink Greetings!

A quick hello today with wishes for a lovely pink day and weekend. My son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter are here for a weekend visit. We are spending precious moments together and enjoying every single one of them!

After graduation from the University of Michigan, my beautiful granddaughter went on to serve a two-year stint in the Peace Corp in Jordan where she lived in a small mountain village and worked at the women's center. She did an amazing job but we are happy to have her back in the states. Now a graduate student at Johns Hopkins, she is enjoying student life once more! Happy days are here again!


  1. What a pretty card!
    Enjoy your family!
    It's been almost a year since I've seen my kids and grands. ♥

  2. Enjoy your weekend with your precious family. I'm sure you are very proud of your granddaughter. She sounds like an incredible lady! Twyla

  3. What a wonderful granddaughter you have! I hope your family time is just wonderful! Suzie

  4. Oh, I don't think I have to wish you a happy weekend, your guests say it all. Lovely pink card. Happy Pink Saturday.

  5. I would love a garden that looked like this one.
    So beautiful. Looks like a spring day. Love your vintage cards. Have a lovely week end.

  6. That tree looks like cotton candy!

    I'm in awe of your granddaughter. I thought seriously about spending some time in the Peace Corps. Incredibly unselfish and meaningful of her.

    Have a great weekend!


  7. It is so wonderful to have family visit. Our family is so far away it makes it really special for us when they come. My Aunt Shirley is visiting now. And we are having a great time. Stop by when you can. Hugs, Connie

  8. Thank you for your comment on my blog

  10. Oui! Your g-dau is just around the corner from us, Coralie. So glad you are all going to have a beautiful visit.

    Also, today we had to go back thru some records & I about flipped .... there you were in our payment column, I bought something from you about 8 years ago. Small world.

    Hugs, TTFN ~Marydon

  11. Your granddaughter is inspiring! I'm happy for you all to get to spend some time visiting! I've been reading A Tree Grows in Trout Creek and am really enjoying stubborn little you! I can't wait to try the Oatmeal Bread!

  12. Hi Coralie,

    What a nice pink Saturday post! Congratulations to your granddaughter and graduate school at Johns Hopkins. How awesome for her being in the Peace Corp., I'm sure you're relieved to have her home.

    You are right, we do seem to have a great deal in common. Interesting how we both have similar jobs, similar interests and live in the same state.

    Your babies are very sweet! I love shelties!

    Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to reading more of your blog!
