Project Inspire{d} Link Party #180

Hello friends! Welcome to this week's Project Inspire{d}.  I am thrilled, as always, to have you here.

Picture of Boys to Print 4x6 Joe Jordan Max Joe's Graduation June 30, 2016

Last week was a busy week for my family - we celebrated the graduation of our two oldest sons.  When I say time flies, it isn't just an observation, it's my experience. I only have one little one left....and even he's not so little any more.  While it is a huge blessing to have two grown it is also somewhat sad for me....any other mothers feel this way?  When I started this blog I had little youngest was only 3....oh time...if only you could slow down.

The party was great....just a very small get together with family and thankfully, our air conditioner worked! My husband was able to fix it last week....thank God!Light Up the Night Summer Tour at 800 x 800

If you enjoy outdoor decorating I did a post about outdoor lighting....very subtle lighting....lanterns, battery-operated candles (those are awesome) and a few other little sparkly touches.  I would love to have you check out that post and if you would like a very nice coupon there's a code at the bottom just for you!

Fruit infused water recipe - glasses filled with straws and strawberry garnish at cupcakesandcrinoline.comI also shared a post about fruit infused water.  Have you tried it yet? I served it at the party and it was a huge success.  Because it was so hot I had a large mason jar filled with ice water and a smaller jar filled with the infused water.....that jar needed to be refilled twice for only 14 people!  I also find my sons prefer drinking it to water so it's a great way to get some fruit, albeit watered down, into them.

So now show us what you've been up to and let's get this party started!
