Lazy Bubbles

Finally a wee bit of time in the Bubble! This time of year is so incredibly busy! Twelve hour days and that is if I'm lucky! Last semester for some of dear peeps - I will miss them - but am humbled and honored to have been a part of their collegiate journey.

My life is not my own beginning the end of March! Bubble time will be few and far between...If only I can hold on until the end of MAY! I was going to cut out little birdies to set on the fences but lack of time and PURE LAZINESS pointed me in the direction of a never used dragon fly punch.
