where have I been?

Where has Debra been?? Well….

I spent the weekend in Syracuse with the NYFA Mark program. I have a lot to say about that experience, but I am going to save that for another post.

Otherwise I have been up to my eyeballs in chalkboard menu signs, but I am happy to say that I have finally finished them! Yea!! Here are a few pictures of them installed in their new home, The Brickwalk cafe (formerly the refractory) at Chautauqua Institution.

And our baby walked the stage at her High School graduation on Friday. Here we are after graduation. It was a bittersweet moment, to see our last child walk into the rest of her life – which I know will be amazing. She is headed to Brockport in the fall to double major in theatre & early childhood ed. I know she has a creative, fulfilling life ahead.

Wow! where did all those years go? So this is a weekend for celebrations and a big sigh of relief. I will be back next week to talk about the NYFA experience and share some updates from the studio.

Thanks to all my regular readers for sharing our families journey so far.

  1. Wow- those are the fanciest chalkboard menus I’ve ever seen; they’re more works of art than menus, I’d say. Congratulations to your daughter on her graduation! I know how you feel though; my baby is getting married in September!

    • yes we have a wedding next month too – how can I be old enough to have a child who is getting married. I am looking forward to having my hubby all to myself again, but it seems weird that this chapter in our lives is here so soon.
