2. after spending nearly ten hours on delta.com, some serious finagling, the gift of skymiles, and the generosity from family members, we are going home to california this summer! it was no small miracle either - i had to book all our tickets separately and prayed that our kids wouldn't end up on random flights all alone. oh please come quickly, july. cool breezes, mosquito-less days, foggy nights, and gobs of family time could not arrive soon enough.
this pretty girl yesterday. we stayed in our backyard, used our neighbor's weeping willow tree and somehow it looks like we're smack dab in a jungle somewhere. fun!
4. i do declare we went to the most gorgeous wedding on saturday - it was our Pastor's daughter's big day. my honey played the music and i just sat. it's been a long time since i've just sat at a wedding and didn't have to take pictures. it was so easy. the bride and groom even left the aisle in a horse-drawn carriage. sometimes i want kelly and i to get married all over again just to create a dreamy day once more. but then i remember the price tag and the stress and praise God it's all over with. : )
5. i wore my ages old elephant necklace this weekend and have decided that everyone should own one. mine is from target (think 5 years ago). i bought it then for Republican pride, i do confess. don't hold it against me. ; )
6. HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY to everyone. freedom costs many americans just that - and not only that, but their life, too. let's remember them today with highest honor.
