I started my digital scrapbooking today. I was able to scan photo's from my childhood while I was home and am attempting to digitally scrapbook all of them. Here is my first attempt, I'm liking it so far.

I started my long overdue fresh herb garden today. I planted lavender, cilantro, sage, basil, dill & mint. I still plan on buying a rosemary bush and planting it in my yard, I would also like to plant some thyme but I didn't see any at the nursery

I plan on finishing my Easter cards tonight so I can send them out tomorrow morning. Cheesy I know but, never the less, cute!

Three weeks ago my younger brother Casey died in a car accident.  It's hard to describe the way it feels to walk around in this altered universe now.  Everything seems dimmer and like it can never be as bright as it was before.  This is not the first brother I have lost.  Almost 6 years ago my brother David died suddenly from a heart condition we were unaware of.  He was only 17 and now Casey at 20 has joined him in heaven.  I know that they are both joyful and at peace now.  No longer weighed down by the burdens of this world.  Oh... but what I wouldn't give to hug them one last time and tell them how much I love them both and how blessed I am to be their big sister.
