Before the day is over, just wanted to say - thanks for all the wonderful messages on facebook, and for all the cards, gifts, texts, and calls from friends. It's been a fun birthday - started out with coffee this morning with mom! She was visiting for Fallon's graduation. We visited my roses to see if there was a sign from Shannon. With many about to bloom, two stood out. One for her, one for me. Below is mom in the garden - the original rose bush is nearly twice as tall as her. Ok, she is pint-size, but the roses are also enormous. Another few days of sunshine and we will have dozens of roses.
On Saturday Fallon graduated from Raritan Valley Community College. She moving on the Rutgers in the Fall - studying Art History. It was a grand day, and so special to celebrate her achievement. We gave mom a tour of the new campus she'll be at soon. Well, not so new - Rutgers marked their 250th anniversary this year. *tosses confetti for Fallon*
