Squeeze the Day!

FYI - This is my second blog post of the day. If you're here to see my Ready, Set, Go card it is the next blog post... so you can check out this card and then scroll on to the next one or if you're in a hurry to get there you can just click - HERE - and it will take you directly to that post.

My son Brock loves LOVES lemons. Back in the day (you know, before COVID, when we could eat in restaurants) he enjoyed taking that lemon slice off the rim of his glass of water and eating the deliciousness. He'd then ask for my lemon, too. Truth is, I'm not fond of lemon with my water (though I do love lime with it) so the only reason I ever ask for lemon with my water is so I can share that slice with Brock. It makes him so happy.

I say - Squeeze the day! Whatever makes you happy today, as long as it's safe (and legal), go for it.

I might even add lemons to my next grocery order so Brock can enjoy them at home now that we aren't going to restaurants.

I used the Yello! stamp set 
from The Project Bin on this card.

Cute card Jeanette. You are such a good mama. I bet Brock appreciates getting the extra lemon slice. Great job on your card.

Fabulous card Jeanette - love the contrast of the black and white striped background and the bright yellow lemon, and then the large white panel with the bold sentiment. The yellow brads are perfect there.
Thank you for sharing that anecdote about Brock :)
Stay safe
