She's soaring...

Darling daughter is in her final year at University studying Journalism. Before she can graduate she must do a one month unpaid Internship. I suggested she "get on it" first thing this fall and try to get things set up asap. Because she has a whole lot  on her plate this year, the sooner things are "settled" the better.. Well she did it! She got the "plum" position - with the Toronto Globe and Mail. Largest newspaper in the country! Woohooo! She is thrilled and so are we. (Proud Mama here)
This week she sold a story to the Halifax Chronicle Herald, another feather in her cap. Today she went up flying, to take some photos for her story. She got to sit in the Co-pilot's seat and even took the controls for a bit. Yep,  my girl's gonna soar... She's always up for an adventure...





Here she is with Pilot Dave. These two pics are courtesy of our friend Sandy W.



Below are several photos Laura took over Halifax and below that, world famous Peggy's Cove. You can pick out the lighthouse if you look carefully.

Well, what can I say? I'm envious of Laura's adventure today... I'm so glad they had a good day, especially weatherwise...

Peace,
Linda

Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen....

It's so exciting to watch our grown up kids achieve their dreams. It is something beyond pride alone. Best wishes moving forward; looks like nothing is going to top this young woman.
