HAPPY 83RD DAD!
It really is true what my 90 year old Grandma told me years ago...the older you get the faster time does fly by...now today we are going to celebrate my Dad's 83rd birthday. He's a very talented and helpful Dad and worked hard his whole life at a job he really didn't love to support our family until he was able to retire. Now we get to have him and my Mom down here in Florida 6 months of the year and they spend the other 6 up north in MN where my brother and sister live. Funny how life works out and great too! Happy Birthday and we love you Dad!
I am an ocean media seashell artist living in Central Florida - moved here after a lifetime in snowy Minnesota and finally feel at home here with the sun, sand and seashells! My husband and I get up each morning and have our coffee looking out at our small pool surrounded by tropical vines and flowers with birds and butterflies swooping among them. Sounds like a fairytale and for us, it is...the downside is that money is much tighter than it was up north where I sold real estate - now I create art all day and the headaches are virtually nil.
