Happiness

Read this today...'people who pay compliments easily seem to enjoy life more than people who criticize.'

Billboard



Check out the new billboard on Highway 82 (across from Wal-Mart)! Just like a movie star, Emmett's name is in lights!

Berry Nice

These are some (yes, I've already eaten a large bowl!) of the season's first big, fat, juicy blueberries from the bushes in our yard. I wish I could share them with you.

Happy Anniversary!




33 years ago today we walked down the aisle together and began our 'happily ever after' adventure...we agree that it's not always been easy, but it's always been the best thing that ever happened to either of us.

Weekend in the 'ham

We are enjoying spending a few days in Birmingham with Ashley and Worth. Last night Tyson, Beth, and Jake joined us for supper. Today I had the opportunity to give Ellie's room a fresh coat of paint (anjou pear)...

...and tonight the the four of us went out to celebrate Worth's 'intern no more' status. 2008 continues to be a year of blessings.

Junebug Sweet Sixteen

The sixteenth annual Junebug beach trip was the best one yet! Petey took us anywhere we wanted to go and everyone on the Island was jealous. :) The four of us treasure the dynamic of the friendship we share and appreciate it for the rare gem it is. Everyone should be so blessed.

Woo hoo!

Big day for us! Emmett earned his real estate license! I am very proud of his accomplishment and look forward to working in the office with him as he begins his new career. Who ever dreamed we'd be working together???

Estivate

My new favorite word (thanks, Linda!):
Estivate - To pass the summer in a dormant or torpid state.
Sounds like something we'd like to do, doesn't it?

More Memories

In the span of a weekend, I spent time with all of my bridesmaids, except, of course, Martha. How funny is that? I didn't even realize it until Betsey called our time at the lake a bridesmaids reunion. Everyone there had been a bridesmaid to at least one other person there...many years ago. So nice that friendships can be renewed and we find ways to enjoy each other as the people we've become. One note of interest: all of us are still married to our original husband! You can't hardly get six women in their fifties together and say that, can you?

Still Crazy After All These Years




...and I have to say, amazingly the same (normal aging does not count!). Plus, our collective memory is really quite impressive. I hope this is the beginning of a new summer tradition.
