the lucky ducky.

My little brother is a lucky ducky. He graduated this weekend, and my parents threw him a party. I, of course, was elected to help out with this and that… and then, this and that. I’m worn out from being a busy bee this weekend. Nonetheless, congratulations to my little brother for finishing up college!

Here are just a few of the photos from his commencement ceremony:

My mom and I waited outside before the commencement ceremony began.

Gloria hates getting her photo taken! I, of course, made her do it anyways. Aren't I the nicest person?!

Here's Sean looking up at the family right before he graduates!

Our family from Hawaii gave the graduate beautiful leis. It's a tradition!

The proud Mommy of a college graduate. It's gotta feel great for her!

My GORGEOUS cousin, Nicole! She grew up way too fast!

I LOVE my family. 🙂

…and that is why I’m exhausted. Packing, cleaning, graduation, dinner party, another party, packing… Life always keeps me on my toes. 😉

On another note,  I really appreciate the visits from everyone for my Imaginisce giveaway. The response was amazing, and although I’d love to send out a package of goodies to all of you, I only have enough for one lucky ducky.  The winner to the giveaway is…

Lastly, there are some FUN things to share tomorrow. Not only will I post the latest projects I’ve been working on, but I am going to share an exciting announcement that you are definitely not going to want to miss. Until then, here are some sneak peeks for some of the latest things I have been working on:

Hopefully, I will see you all back here tomorrow.
