As I stated in this post, my son graduated from High School last week!  We had a great time as we partied and celebrated with our friends and family.  And now I'm super excited to share some of the party details on my blog. 

My son is getting ready to go off to college so he's in need of all sorts of advice at this pivotal time in his life.  All of the people that love and care about him, came to celebrate with him at his party.  Which made it the perfect time to offer advice to him.  I whipped up a quick and easy jar to collect the advice.
