I've been missing but I'm back!


First I have to warn  you my dear friends that this will be a long and heavy photo post

It's been more than a month since my last post but I've been really busy.
First it was my daughter's Graduation. She is now officially a Certified Nurse. It was a beautiful ceremony, it seems that it was only yesterday that she was just a little girl.

                                               My daughter and a couple of good friends of hers


After the Graduation I have a small vacation with all the family ( that mens the four of us)
We went to Algarve, to a place we love and have been going there for almost 15 years.



                                                            Walking  in Monte Gordo
                                               

                                               And my favorite place ... The pool





 We stayed only a week but it was great, I relaxed by the pool, got some sun and forgot all the problems of our daily lives.

My great friend Célia came to Portugal again. It was her brother's birthday and she came to celebrate with the family. She lives in Australia, her brother in South Africa and their mother lives in Portugal.
Of course we didn't miss the chance to meet again.
She came to my house and we had the most wonderful time. I got spoiled by Célia for she brought me so many fabulous gifts. She is a really generous and kind person.

I think I'll stop right here. I've done a little sewing lately but I will show it in a another post.

                                                                        HUGS,
