Minted College Graduation Announcements

We love to use Minted College Graduation Announcements to send out to family and friends, part of the grand celebration coming in the next few weeks!

Minted College Graduation AnnouncementsFriends, these weeks have been bittersweet for me. When you love your life, and the precious people in it, it’s hard to say good-bye. We’re still working out the details of our move, and of course packing away, but also sharing some pretty special times with friends and family. My sisters and I went to lunch last weekend, my friend Cindy hosted a huge party for me last night, filled with lots of girlfriend love (I’m such a lucky girl). Oh, and here’s a peek at the deliciousness that my friends brought to the potluck. Yes, I have amazing friends who are great cooks! (Those strawberries in the center? To die for – stuffed with cheesecake!)

I woke up this morning feeling sad, like suddenly, the deep friendships that I cherish and love feel like a huge loss. I sort of froze up, trying to get some work done on my blog, and plan some meals and recipes that I want to share here on RE, and also plan lunch dates with long-time friends. Let me just say, it’s all a bit overwhelming!

One thing that I do is take care of my body. I get great sleep, eat healthy, and I’m still doing my daily yoga! Stretching and flexing and not having the aches and pains of moving around are important to me. I don’t want to feel old in my young body (ha).

I feel like the changes ahead will be a lot of work, and yet, I’ll also feel like I’m on vacation. What a combination that will be, but one that I can only walk through and “feel” as I go.

For a quick moment this morning, I imagined what it would be like if tomorrow were August 1st, because I know much of our move and details would be completed, and I’d feel settled.

Relish in and cherish today!

But there is no guarantee for tomorrow, so I will relish in and cherish today!

I have a long to-do list, people to see, parties to plan (my son is graduating college and we’re hosting a party for him tonight yaaaaay!), and I’ll move toward grace and love for our special boy. We’re so proud of him. And by the way, we ordered his graduation announcements from Minted – which makes ordering very easy!

We love their product, the recycled paper that they use, the specialty corners, sizes, colors, and then with a click and a few boxes filled in, you can also have matching Thank You notes. Thank you notes are something that I’ve always taught my kids is important. You always give a thoughtful, hand-written note of “thanks” to those who bless you, and care about you!

Happily added to our to-do list, we were honored to send Garrett’s announcement to so many friends and family.

Garrett’s support over the years, those who love him.

To participate in a BIG celebration, and then on to new things for our son. A new chapter, one where we pray his steps are guided, and he learns and grows.

Oh, the places you’ll go … Garrett! (He’s off to Beijing in a few short weeks!)

This post is sponsored by Minted, who provided our announcements and thank you cards, but as always, all opinions are my own.

  1. Big hugs Sandy❤️

  2. Law! What a spread! I’d hate to leave those friends, too!

    We’re doing the high school graduation thing in a couple of weeks. Fun times.

    In reading about your “process” of moving to the next adventure, I relate as I have dear friends who are doing the exact same. Newly retired, downsizing (but not much from what I can tell!) and preparing for a new lifestyle. We will be doing the same as well but not for another 12 years…I cannot, I repeat cannot, imagine my husband departing with anything in the garage. How do you, how will we, ever do that??  The memories are bittersweet aren’t they? 

    I agree with our other friends here..your writing touches our hearts and helps us realize what we do have and what matters.

    • Thanks Maxine! Once you get going, and you have a plan, it gets easier and easier to let go of “stuff.” We have quite a few friends who’ve already done this, and it’s truly a freeing feeling. Your husband can do it! ha ha.

  3. Hugs to you! What an adventure you are on, one I’m not sure I could do, though sometimes I think I could. I have one more year til my youngest graduates and it’s kind of weird.

  4. Congratulations to Garrett! Sandy, love starting my morning with reading your blog. Your writing always touches the heart and all the important things that matter. Thank you.
