Mail and other fun happenings!

Hello all!  I guess it's about time I catch you up on my mail.  It just seems like I have been so busy lately and time is just zipping right by.  I can't believe it's already the end of May.  Phew!  Really!  Where does the time go?  It always seems like I have a lot to do or want to do but then never get done!  Anyone else have this problem?  I've been trying to find time for hobbies lately but I always have a more pressing issue to deal with.  As some of you know my son Noah is autistic and he has priority in my life.  I'm also trying to grow my teaching business which takes a lot of time and energy. There's also my father who is precious to me and I try to spend as much time with him as I can.  After all of these there is Me time.  It's a juggling act and not an easy one.  And now it's time for the mail.
From my friend Judy from England.  She also included some lovely stationary sheets, stickers and note cards.
From my dear friend Ayaka from Japan.  She also sent some lovely stationary sheets and bookmarks.
From my friend Molly from New Hampshire.
Two beautiful "Lilacs" decos.
A "Vintage Men" deco.
Variety of beautiful decos.  I especially LOVE the "Eggs & Nests" deco.
Another variety of lovely decos.
This is not really a swap but one of my friends made me some beautiful address labels.  She also sent me a small note pad.
In other news, a couple of weeks ago Noah and I spent a weekend visiting my friend Molly and family in New Hampshire.  On the Saturday we spent a beautiful day walking the streets of Boston.  I love Boston, such a pretty city and full of energy!
Delicious cakes at the Cheesecake Factory.  What I wouldn't give for a piece of one of those cakes right at this moment!
A Memorial to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.  I have never seen anything like it.  It was quite moving!
Noah and I.
Noah and Molly's daughter Jadira at the beautiful Public Gardens.
We had a nice ride on the lovely Swan Boats at the Public Gardens.
We also stopped by the Paper Source for a look.  What an amazing store but expensive.
I bought lot's of postcards, a vintage camera pencil case and nice smelling soaps.
Other things I bought at Michael's while in New Hampshire:
Goodnight everyone!
