Frequent readers of this blog know that I am blessed with an amazing family – a smart Dad, a super kind Mother, a protective and loyal brother and a 4-legged nephew and niece (Toby on left, Samantha on right). We just finished an epic weekend for our family.
My ‘little’ brother had a birthday this weekend. If you’re an Otion customer, be sure and wish him ‘Happy Birthday‘ next time you’re in. He is an avid fisherman so my husband and I bought him a fish finder for his lovely bass fishing boat. He spends many many weekend afternoons in solitude, fishing (but never keeping; he’s a catch’n’release pro). Hopefully the fish finder will make it easier for him to be successful every time.
Another exciting event for our family was my husband’s graduation from his MBA program. He’s been working hard on his studies in night school while running his own company. He’s a stellar engineer-turned-CEO and everyone in the family is bursting with pride over his achievements.
Here we are, joking with his MBA program director and promising to have him over to dinner soon (an easy promise to keep because he’s a smart, witty guy!).
And, the entire celebratory family! The little cutie in front is named ‘Ana Marie’ (my husband’s sister) and I showed up on the scene after she was named! What are the odds of two Anne-Marie’s/Ana Marie’s in one family? No matter what the odds are, it sure made for one happy, proud family this weekend. I hope you had equally laughter-filled, loving weekends.
