I like Thursday: June 7, 2018

I love this gal!
My beautiful niece Maggie who just graduated from college!
She is standing with my brother.  We had small graduation party for her last weekend.  She is going on to Georgetown for her Master's.  I am so very proud of her and just adore having her and her fiancee home.  Love you girl!

Scout and Maggie's dog Cashew always have a lot of fun playing together too!

I like the simple things this week: strawberry preserves, a freshly mowed lawn, and quiet walks with Scout.

I like swans.

I like this sewing basket.  

I like the books by Mary Kerr.  She spoke at our guild again last week and we love having her.  Everyone said the same thing:  she is so inspiring.  I love her books too!

I hope you have a wonderful week. I'm in the midst of some very busy days right now but hope to visit everyone's blog today or tomorrow!

Link up with LeeAnna for more likes!

Hi Michele,
How exciting for your niece, Maggie. I wish her all the success at Georgetown and in her Master's. I love seeing the puppies playing or exploring. Cashew really stands out against the pretty green and the dark color of Scout. Sewing baskets - I used to have my grandmother's when I was a child. I wonder whatever happened to that . . .

Scout looks happy. Mmm.... strawberry preserves. The stream and pond are pretty.

I'm a big fan of the simple things, too! I especially like your photo of the swan - what a neat bird to be able to see!

cashew! What a fab name! Milo stands the same way... they are so alike.
He is going to miss his social life in this neighborhood, all his playmates and kids are in one little world. said...

Oh I like your list. Congratulations to your niece.
