Happy Birthday Family Brings Joy

photo 5 (6)Today is the day.

Five years ago I began Family Brings Joy.

I can’t believe it’s been 5 years.

I wonder how many of you have been following this thing I called life {my blog} for the majority of that time?  I know my sweet mom has.  I hope one day my kids will be happy to have me follow and comment on all their social media.  Right now it’s frowned upon.

Anyway, today I will be celebrating by taking the girls on a shopping trip to our favorite city 2 hours away.  It’s time to buy my college bound daughter a laptop.  She’s pretty excited.  I would be too…there were no such things as laptops when I went to college.  My youngest needs new jazz shoes while my son needs longer jeans.  I don’t really need anything for me.  I’ll just enjoy being with them and grateful we can purchase the items they need.

I hope each and every one of you has a fabulous day!  Thank you for being you and being a part of the Family Brings Joy community.  You are special and mean the world to me. :)

Happy Birthday Family Brings Joy!
