Wow! What a week!

I have been going non-stop for the last few weeks getting ready for the last few days. 

On Thursday, our company held a ground breaking ceremony for the impending campus expansion. It was kind of a big deal - in fact, Governor Nathan Deal was there.

We had every detail planned down to the little shovel-shaped spoons to put the dirt in the commemorative jars, but the one thing we couldn't control was the weather. 

Luckily we had a big tent and everything went off without a hitch. Our company president gave a moving speech about how we've let go of so many of the ceremonies in life, and why they chose to stand on ceremony for this occasion because of what it means to the whole company and its associates. I may have been a little extra sentimental because of the timing, but the whole day was beautiful despite the rain.

I came home from work, exhausted and ready for a nap, but there was no time for that! We packed a bag, and left early Friday morning for Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for Deuce's graduation from the University of Alabama. #RollTide

More rain couldn't wash away our excitement and pride! We didn't get to bring him home with us since he's "taking a victory lap" and staying another year to get his Master's degree.

Now it's time to get back to quilting and work on Monday's post for the #machinequiltingblog hop. I hope you join us!
