XOXO = Hugs and Kisses

Today is the day! It is very bittersweet for me and I  am sharing my "X" post for Ms. Jenny and the gang at Alphabe Thursday! Today is the day our oldest son Jeremy moves from his childhood memories and siblings and parents and moves into a brand new chapter in his life, home ownership! We are excited for him and Brittany to say the very least! It will be a new experience for him as Brittany has a seven year old daughter Addy and they will be a sweet little phamily! It is hard to let go but he deserves this. He has worked hard on getting his education, finding a job with wonderful benefits and he has had a few promotions already too! He is one of those kind hearts. He is the person who would have reached out to you at school if you were looking sad, lonely or lost! It is just his nature.
This is the little boy who grew up to be an incredibly handsome and beautiful young man. He has met the love of his life and she too, is a serious Denver Bronco fan!
They are very good for each other and I know they will have a wonderful journey together.

I am clearing out Nick's things in the nightstand and chest of drawers that were too large for our bedroom when we bought our new bedroom set five years ago! It is really good quality furniture so Jeremy is taking it to his new place. Nick will have all this new furniture because Jeremy helped us by paying for the chest of drawers and nightstand. It was a very good trade!
While Jeremy and Brittany set up their first home, we will be painting and getting our own home in order. We have had many  blessings and for that I am truly grateful.
We will all be happy at our home sweet home!
When Noelle and Roger bought their first home, her friend Mary from Ireland gave her a similar plaque like this one. I want to find one for Jeremy and Brittany. I am sad Ms. Jenny has been suffering with so much pain. She paints the best signs! Sigh!

xoxo (abbreviation) : an abbreviation for hugs and kisses
I was sorry for what I did yesterday. I gave my girlfriend xoxo

I wanted to share that I truly did find this in the Merriam-Webster dictionary on line and thought Hugs and Kisses would be so appropriate for Jeremy, Brittany and Addy today!

I hope you visit Ms. Jenny and Mr. Steve to say hello and join Alphabe Thursday today.

I know one Mom who is happy! My great-niece and Hub have a home like that. All garage in front with a side entrance. I think they will like it.

When I saw that picture, I knew what it was! Congratulations to the new homeowners and praying for them! A happy phamily for sure! Have a blessed evening dear friend, HUGS!

I wish the kids many years of happiness in their new home. My goodness, that Rose is a beauty! We used to have a cat who looked somewhat like Rose.

I just love that photo that shows the clouds in the sky. How unusual the clouds are.

I went to the doctor today because I was afraid that I had pneumonia and I was right. Oh dear, now I'll be down for another week or two. At least I can't say that I'm not getting enough rest!!

Well, I'm off to nap now. The new meds are making me sleepy. You be well and have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

The last few sentences in the first paragraph said it all. You have very reason to be proud. Tell your son this Texans fan is wishing Gary Kubiak and Wade Phillips well in Denver.

It was years before I found out that the O in XOXO represented a hug!

No one ever told me all the losses you go through when your kids grow up:)
You will miss them, but also be proud that they're doing well in life!
