Tasty memories of summer ....

The kids are back in school, traffic is picking up, the weather is getting cooler .... signs that summer is on its way out.  These cherries remind me of summer. Oh how I miss fresh cherries from the Farmer's Market!

I was recently surprised with a "care package" in the mail from my oldest son. I had fun creating a journal page to help remember this wonderful surprise. The page includes a 'surprise' in that the box top opens to reveal a fold-out mini-note representation of a handwritten note that was inside the boxI transcribed part of my son's handwritten note onto the mini-note and attached it as a foldout under the top of the box. Tracing paper was used for the mini-note to avoid too much bulk.

What a treat!!!!!
