It was a busy fun-filled weekend! My daughter’s junior prom (yes I had to take out the island girl braids from my hair as per her request that I look more like a mom haha) and Mother’s Day hike and brunch in Naples. Life is good! I even had the pleasure of meeting a loyal and dedicated FLC subscriber Friday night after Sam’s Lax game and got a pic with her 🙂 Then Saturday when we picked up the prom flowers at Rockcastle, the owner yelled out to me “Blue Skies”! Ahhhhh….We truly are all connected and it makes life so sweet!
