Happy Times!

So it's time for a little joy in my life!  I've talked about my friend of 40 years {Miss Joy} before and showed y'all her fabulous beach cottage, remember?  Well, Joy's son Sean just graduated, with highest honors, from Georgia Tech.  Joy drove up to Atlanta from Savannah to be with him last weekend on his special day.  After some well-deserved celebrating with his friends back in Savannah and then spending some time with his Daddy waaaay over in Finland, Sean will be moving to Charlotte, North Carolina to start his job as a Quantitative Financial Analyst.  Lord have mercy, Joy and I had to google that...and we still don't know what it is!

Anyway, I love my friend Joy...we were roommates for a short while as young girls back in Augusta, we worked on cruise ships together for many years, Joy was a Bridesmaid in my wedding, and we both have something HUGE in common...we are SHOPAHOLICS!  I'm looking forward to visiting with Joy later this month at her new beach place on Tybee Island, just outside Savannah.

More JOY!!!  I recently attended the confirmation of my friend Lane's little girls...Melanie and Leslie.  They looked like little princesses on their special day!  God's blessings to both of these girls as they begin the spiritual journey in their lives!

My friend Lane is into baking cakes now...and she created this special beauty for the girls at the fabulous dinner which followed the service.  The top layer is strawberry and the bottom layer is red velvet!  The cake was iced with fondant and I was, of course, very impressed with Lane's cake flower making skills!

I gave the girls sterling monogrammed earrings from The Pink Monogram...something they can keep forever!

"Here's What I Wore" to the Confirmation...The shift is the 'Tutti Fruitti' pattern by Lilly and the aqua cardi is also by the bright pattern!
My Accessories...The wristlet is by Tory Burch and Revas by Tory Burch.  

Charm bracelet, Chanel hair barrette, aqua iPhone cover, monogram necklace, earrings, & ring, 'Eternity' wedding band by Cartier, and 'Love' bracelet (gift from husband 25 years ago).

Thank you for visiting with me today and have a fabulous week y'all!
