Features and Tributes

First of all, I would like to thank TeacherCarrie, who featured one of my layouts (Dog Mom) in her blog, Multi-Photo Scrapbook Layout Gallery. Thanks so much! It's truely an honor!

E and I are currently getting ready with our honeymoon to Europe...a Mediterranean cruise.
I'm doing most of the research on which land tours to book since E isn't really familiar of what would be worthwhile sights. I'm so thankful that I have a good background in the arts field since most (if not all) of the locations have important landmarks that brought about great movements in Art History. It's more or less trying to squeeze in as many places to visit as we could in a day.
I hope we decide soon so we can reserve our slots. :)

On a sadder note, gramp's (mom's side) passed away last week. He was in the hospital for three weeks to treat his pneumonia. He was also having problems breathing when he was admitted. We were all hopeful at first since he was active and communicating with us constantly but his body wasn't responding to the various antibiotics given to him to cure the pneumonia and was becoming weaker as the day progressed. He was on a respirator and couldn't eat on his own. There were a few complications in his lungs like having fluids in it like my other grams (dad's side). It was sort of deja vous for me - same hospital, same respirator...same result.
My mom told me that grandpa was unconscious for about two days before succumbing to death Thursday morning. At least, gramps didn't experience too much pain unto his next life.
I'd like to thank everyone who sent their prayers and support. My gramps was laid to rest on Sunday morning. I thank the Lord that the weather was cooperative after the many storms that came our way as of date. Someone was surely watching over us and making sure gramps had a safe and peaceful journey.

Journaling: Maxine looked so cute as a flowergirl at a recent wedding. She behaved very well and was able to walk down the aisle without a fuss. She even made some new friends aside from giving daddy a few great solo shots to remember this wonderful day!

Hi Cheryl, I used to follow your blog but lost your URL, am glad that I somehow was able to click my way back :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your gramps' passing. It seems like pneumonia is such a grave illness for older people :(

Hope you & your hubby enjoy your European honeymoon.
