A beautiful day!

I started my day today early. I had to open the store and 7:30 came around early. We were busy as usual, but things went smoothly and we had a good time.

So peaceful!
 When I came home, I had a GREAT day! Spring is in bloom. It was 75 degrees out but quite windy. My niece and her family came over. Andy took Barry and all of the kids to the woods with his metal detector. Didn't really find anything but junk, but the trek through the woods was fun. Brookney and I joined them later. To walk along with the trees dancing in the wind, moldy earth crunching beneath our feet, let's just say I am ready for this weather. We stood next to the stream talking and watched out husbands and kids having a great time.

A fun Sunday afternoon activity.
When we went back to the house, the men put pork chops on the grill and we took care of the rest of the food inside. Our kids played Uno at my dining room table. Curtains blew as the smell of dinner cooking was carried in through the window on a warm breeze. And when we were done with dinner, everyone headed outside to play football.

Now I sit here this evening with the front door open, Country Music Awards on the television, and the dog laying at my feet. I just sent my kids to bed with a kiss and my dear husband is laying beside me on the couch. Life is good! It's peaceful and in this very moment as I write this to you, it is absolutely PERFECT!  Days like today make those moments where life goes crazy, seem insignificant.

My hope is that you had a day like this too. I hope that at some point this weekend you were sitting somewhere thinking, It doesn't get any better than this!  Because between you and doesn't.


  1. Glad you had such a wonderful day! Sounds wonderful. I had a very nice one too. Spent several hours swinging on the porch swing with my 17 yo son talking. Just us. Doesn't happen often, but it was nice. It was warm and windy here down in NE MS too. :)

  2. Sounds like you had a fabulous, fun day! Yay! I had a wonderful day too and the weather was beautiful.

  3. MICHELLE- I am so glad to hear that you had a moment like that with your son. You both will look back on it and smile. Those moments are important.

    NICOLE-How wonderful that you had a 'HAPPY' day too. It is wonderful knowing I wasn't alone.

    Thanks you two for stopping in.
