July was a full-packed month for me. It seemed I was always on the go! An interesting party I went to early on in the month was my Aunt Donna’s divorce party…lol. Believe me, I know it’s not a laughing matter but we sure did have fun turning lemons into lemonade 🙂 My Aunt Donna and Uncle Jack had been together for over 20 years before deciding to call it quits. It was shocking news to swallow. After months of separation and heartache, my aunt decided she needed to get out of their home and leave all the memories behind. So she packed up her essentials and took her dog Bailey, and together they moved to a new apartment in the city. My mom (Donna’s sister) was a big help in getting her situated. When my mom saw her sister could use some new stuff she decided to throw her a little shower and invite only her closest family and friends.
Aunt Donna got a ton of great stuff to help her get on her feet. I’ll give my mother the award for the most creative gift lol. She wrapped up about 30 different cleaning products and wrote a poem to her sister using each product name in the passage. Example: “One day in the future you’ll meet a big, brawny man who will fill your life with joy” – then gave her a package of Brawny paper towels and Joy dish soap. We all laughed at some of the stuff she came up with, it really was a cute idea! She ended it with this outdoor throw rug – incase Jack should ever come knocking at her new door…lol!
And the cake matched the cookies! It too tasted as good as it looked! It had an almond batter topped with a buttercream frosting…delicious!
