Can I just say....

I am so looking forward to this weekend! Ralph and I are off to Sandestin for a little trip. I am so excited to spend some quiet time with my man. And we get to visit with friends from Georgia! The girls are off with grandparents and friends. We are all looking forward to this weekend, each for different reasons! Thanks to all who are making this possible.
I am so thankful that after all these years, the idea of going on a date with Ralph still makes me smile.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Mom (aka, Grandma & BamBam)! Today is her birthday and we spent this past weekend in Panama City Beach celebrating with her. Here is a picture of her at her birthday supper at Margaritaville. She got a special hat made just for her, by a pirate on stilts. It was a fun evening, don't let her face fool you! Love you Mom!

When life was simpler

I took this picture this afternoon, sorry it's kind of grainy. I was trying to take it without being noticed. It's Madie sitting on the trampoline, reading a book after she had been swimming. It reminded me that I used to sit and read for hours, outside. It was one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. When life was simpler, and there were no other responsibilities, besides keeping my room clean and making good grades! This served as a reminder for me, to slow down and remember the simple things in life that can bring so much pleasure. What is that simple thing for you?

I thought my eyes were playing tricks...

That was the thought running through my head as I passed the window this afternoon. You see, I was inside doing a few things. I had sent the girls outside to swim. They had all done their homework in a timely manner, supper was not ready yet, so I sent them out to swim. And as I usually do, I was checking on them every few minutes as I worked on things here in the house. Then I thought I saw something, actually the lack of something. One of the girls was standing on the ladder, and guess what she was missing - her swimsuit! Low and behold, they were all sans swimsuit. I could not believe it. They were playing as they usually do, just not dressed. So, I hollered out the door for them to put their swimsuits back on, and they did. I guess they just wanted to be a little bit more freedom today. All I can say is that it's a good thing we live in the woods!

They do love each other!



There are times these 2 fight so much and so hard I wonder if they love each other. This afternoon as we were resting I happened to stumble upon this - proof they do love each other - at least for the moment. Ironically, the sticker on Laney's forehead reads, "Love One Another!"

Dedication to my Man

When I first heard this song I instantly thought of my man! He fits the description in a lot of ways.
I love it, so I had to post the video.
Enjoy Luke Bryan singing "Country Man"



I love you babe, you are my country man!
