The Bright Side

I’m out of town on business in the  industry-favorite/my not-so-favorite location – Vegas. Every other year the main industry  tradeshow is here.  There’s one other meeting that is generally held here every year.

The Beauty of It All

I love Wednesday church dinner & activities and hope to make it a normal park of our week.

It’s so easy to take things for granted. I don’t want to do that. We live 10 minutes from this beach–our […]

The Rivvvvuh

Birthdays, anniversaries, life in general, “the neighbors are at the lake tonight”–we make reasons to have celebrations Lots of popsicle lickin’ and lame-joke tellin’ Bubbles floating about in the summer sun. A rail full of bathing suits, hats, towels, and other items soaked in […]

Come Alive!

On being early.

I had a couple posts ready to go this weekend–except my images weren’t loading.   We took my youngest brother to the movies to see Iron Man 3. He was adamant about getting there as early as possible to secure tickets. Once we got our tickets we hung around outside–there was a live band (they were […]
