Masters of Occupational Therapy

Melea and her friend, Joni.
Melea and her boyfriend, Ben.

Singin' a happy song :)

Today I've been busy getting cards made and things packed for our trip north tomorrow. My baby and her boyfriend are graduating with their Masters Degrees!

Totally Sidetracked =

Spending the whole morning on the internet where I found this on Keri Smith's blog:

Which reminded me of the flickr group, Faces in Places, where I found this from Georgios Karamanis' photostream:

Which somehow led me to my new favorite blog, New Math, where I found this on I-can't-even-remember-whose blog:

Which led me to share all that on this post!

So, what does YOU + SIDETRACKED = ?
