Julie convinced me to download Skype this week so she and the kids could see us. I did and it pretty much ROCKS! Samuel and I have gotten a lot of face time, along with the other 3 little cuties. Henry loves it and goes “Ah-oh” the whole time, as though it has to be a mistake to see his cousins in real time on the computer! Samuel has his own Skype account. Is he really this old now?! I remember this little chubby faced boy like it was yesterday. Oh me.
Doesn’t this picture crack you up? Well, maybe it doesn’t, but I laughed outloud at the 11×13 I discovered this week in a photo box. We really did it up big in our denim, I tell ya!
The adorable little guy in the yellow suit had his 28th birthday this week. Man, we are getting so old! I am pretty confident Granny would be pretty proud of her adult great-grandchildren. The preparation for Spring always makes me think of our precious Granny.
This warmer weather is making me so ready to wear Spring dresses! I love this memory of Mawmaw buying us matching dresses at the Dollar General (because they were lined dresses and too cute for DG and she thought we had to have them right then!) and all three of us performing a gospel trio in Julie’s living room. Still makes me almost wet my pants with laughter!
Scrapbooking this week while Randall has been off planting is great medicine for me. It reminds me of sweet cropping memories with my mama and sister. We took this at a fun crop a few months after I got married. Anna was not even in the womb yet…my, how things have changed!
And I had to end this post with this picture because I never get tired of it, as long as I live, I will NEVER get tired of this picture! When I look at this I am reminded of what a wonderful sister I have. She was a pre-teen dressed like a 3 year old. I would have never put the terry cloth romper on if I was her, and I can assure you I would have definitely not sported that sweet, happy smile she had on her face when Peepaw took this picture. Julie is a better person than me, that is for sure. My sister is truly the best and I love the fun reminders of how blessed I am to have her!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me!
