Blue Monday - Gabriella Is Here!

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Many people place the Blue Monday button on the top of their post so that visitors can easily spot it. Another Blue Monday button can be placed on the sidebar of your blog. Some choose to place the link within the Blue Jay button.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit you and leave a comment for you. Then, visit other Blue participants to wish them a Happy Blue Monday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Life has become extra exciting in our family this past week. Johnny and I have a nephew and niece who became grandparents Tuesday! Their daughter and son-in-law, the new parents, have decorated the baby's nursery a teal blue--perfect for Blue Monday. The black and white accent colors look so special, I think.



I like this idea of framing hearts on the opposite wall.


Here she is . . . only one day old . . . Gabriella Marie. Isn't she adorable?




I'm so happy that her parents took these pictures as they live down in South Florida. (You might remember that we moved from there to Tampa 2½ years ago.) With modern technology, we can "see" her!

I'm having a book giveaway on my book blog.
To enter, click the cover of the book at the top of this page on my sidebar.


Happy Blue Monday!

Good morning my dear friend. Congratulations on the arrival of such a darling little great niece. Her name is beautiful and I bet she grows up to honor her name. I too love the framed hearts on the wall.

Do you miss your home in South Fl? It is 14 degrees here this morning. Brrrrr. I still do not miss Fl. Only my dtrs. and grands who live there.

Happy Blue Monday Sally.
